See where the Ancient Greek demi-god rested before undertaking his 11th labor at Hercules Cave, a subterranean land of history and myth. The grotto has been formed by erosion and by human hand, with Berbers cutting chunks from the walls to make millstones. Today, the cave's atmospheric illumination creates an evocative environment in which to learn about the myths and history surrounding the site. One of two entries to the cave, the sea entrance has been named the "Map of Africa," thought to have been carved out by the Phoenicians to represent the continent when seen from the water.
