At an altitude of 850 metres, the Lasithi Plateau is the largest mountain plain in Crete and the only one inhabited all the year round. Nowadays, it has been transformed into a giant garden. Until some time ago, irrigation was managed by thousands of small windmills. There are numerous settlements at the plain where you can try local delicacies and the traditional raki drink. Lasithi plateau and its surroundings are also ideal for trekking walks or even cycling and mountain biking. A major attraction is the Dikteon cave above Psychro village, where – according to legend – the god Zeus was born and raised.
