Arkoudospelio Cave at Akrotiri | Crete

At Gouverneto monastery I thought people should see the Bear-cave (Arkoudospilio) and the small church of the Presentation of Christ inside the cave. 

The steps to the cistern and the bear that got petrified while trying to drink water.

A bear-shaped stalagmite is what has created the myth of a bear, drinking the water of the monks from the small cistern that is located in the cave, and after their prayers for help, the Virgin Mary turned it to stone.
