Lassithi Plateau

A world away from the coast surrounded by high mountains, the Lasithi Plateau is a flat fertile plain lying 900 meters above sea level. Lasithi is dotted with hundreds of windmills which were used to pump underground water and unspoilt rural villages. Pay a visit to the Diktaion cave (according mythology the birthpalce of Zeus the father of the Greek gods).Worth to visit is also Lasinthos Eco-park where you can see many animals from Crete as well craftsmen making local products.
