If you look up the history of the place first (and take a torch!) this cave is worth the hike to get there. The views on the way up are great, too. But take plenty of water if you plan to walk there.

What an amazing site, a little bit of a walk to the cave, suggest taking a light 💡 and researching the events that occurred in the cave in 1822-23, an amazing site

This is a magnificent spot indeed. The landscape is beautiful, there is the sea, mountains, cave, olive trees - everything is really picturesque.When I was there, there were not many people, so I enjoyed it and recommend. It is free of charge.
