The cave is great to explore. It's amazing how it was formated during the ages. The guide was a little rude. He did his job fine but he wouldn't let us photos hoot all the time cause he said we have to move quick and...More

This small and very interesting cave with 7 lakes inside is located in the middle of the road, encompassing the Castoria peninsula. The ride around peninsula itself is a experience. The cave is very well maintained, not scary at all and absolutely beautiful.

walking distance from the township and hidden away by the lake. Guided tours compulsory and no photos. But wonderful. The walk takes a long time and there is something to see everywhere. Good paths and well lit.

Great walk in the cave! And one of the prettiest caves we’ve seen! No guide available at the time of our visit- I think it would have been more interesting with a guide

A relatively small cave (compared to the one in Ioannina), with impressive formations, especially the “curtain-like” ones. Well worth a visit.

Huge stalagmites and stalactites in this well preserved cave. Each centimeter of them needs 100 years to form! Excellent guide to explain everything and tell us the history and science of it. Mondays its closed. Fee is 5e for groups and children, 6e for adults.

A must see if visiting Kastoria for for adults and kids.Short and sweet, with different kinds of stalagmites and stalactites. The guided tour was excellent-very interesting and from the heart. The cave is at the middle of a beautiful drive around the lake.
