Cave kefalonia


The Katavothres in Argostoli is one of the most popular sights on the island, as the water disappears through the cracks near the coast, courses down under the entire southern part of the island and flows out to Melissani cave.

This cave is located in Sami, on the eastern coast of the island and inside of it is a blue lake. The ancient remains in the cave revealed a sacred place dedicated to the god Pan and strengthened the mystery about the Melissani cave. According to the legend, Melissanthi was a nymph who committed suicide on the lake because the god Pan rejected her love. Another cave near Sami is the cave of Drogarati. It was discovered 300 years ago when an earthquake exposed its main entrance. The age of the cave is estimated at about 100,000,000 years and only a part of it is accessible. It is probably connected with other caves in the area and due to its great acoustics has hosted many cultural events. Other notable sights in Kefalonia are St. George Castle and DeBosset Bridge in the Kutavo lagoon. Also Kounopetra and the beacons of Agioi Theodoroi and Gero-gombo are some of the touristic attractions of the island that the visitors must visit.
