It is a bit of a climb but it is worth it. The cave and the small church are both interesting and the view is very nice as well.

We went there from Ireo, so it was quite long trip and driving in the mountain was adventurous.. I suggest to be careful while driving.. There are stairs to go to cave so it's kind of easy. It is a big cave, nothing so special...More

We hiked from Votslakia to the Cave around 11am, we had the sun in our back and it was just really hot. We recommend going in the morning, from our own experience. The trip took around 1,5 hour before we got to the cafe, staff...More

We drove all the way to the taverna at the bottom of the trail in a 1.2 litre engine, bit scary at times, but you can definitely make it in a car. The path up to the two chapels and one cave is not too...More

There are 2 caves here. We rode from Kokkari which was quite a long trip, but the views were amazing, as you go into the mountainous centre of the island. One cave is where he lived and one is where he taught. I went to...More

We walked in the afternoon from Votsolakia to the cave. There is a taverna at the foot of the steps which lead up to the chapel at the entrance to the lower cave which was Pythagoras's workshop. The whole round trip took us 3 hours...More

At the end of a long and warm hike there's this nice bar for a relaxing drink, and when you've finished that there's another 60 meters to the caves

Go to the cafe below the caves, have a coffee and get an explanation about the caves (yes, there are two). Remember to go to both ... one will require a little bit of climbing. There are a couple of small churches near the caves,...More
