Milatos is also known for the historic Cave of Milatos. During the Cretan revolution against the Ottomans in 1823, two thousand women and children had hidden in the cave. The Turkish-Egyptian army discovered the cave with the women and children, whereupon a terrible massacre took place and those who remained alive were sold as slaves.
The Cave of Milatos is open to visitors as it has 8 small and large entrances that extend 40 meters and on three levels. The entrance to the cave is through the large central entrance which is 9 meters wide and 2 meters high. The right entrance allows sunlight to enter the chamber where the temple is located. Both of these entrances lead to the main part of the cave while the others lead to the left, smaller part.
