A nice place which is around 15 kilometers far from kalavryta. The road to the cave is charming and the cave itself is interesting.

One of the best caves I have ever been. The nature has been very generous in this terittory. It is unbelievable what you see inside especially if it was a rainy season. The human intervention is the best I have seen ever in Greek spileology.
