The rock cave of Agio Galas, a place located in the north-west of the island, is hiding remains of prehistoric people who lived there six thousand years ago. Some of the discovered objects can be found in the Archaeological Museum in the capital, i.e. skeletal remains of animals, clay fragments, tools, shells, vases and small artistic objects. Some parts of the cave allegedly served for religious purposes. This prehistoric settlement has preserved also its name till nowadays, since ´gala´ means ´milk´ and is derived from the milk colour of the water flowing down on the cave dripstones.
