I had looked forward to this visit as I am a Greek history enthusiast and I love hiking! I started the walk from the village of Votsalakia where I had been staying. The road slowly but surely turned into a smaller dirt road. The more...More

The highlight of this place is a lovely chapel halfway to the cave. Nice original icons, well kept and cared for. 165 steps to the cave are deteriorating, watch Your step! At the entrance, there is another nice chapel, and that is all worth seeing....More
