~ 17 km from the villas. Was discovered 300 years ago and opened to the public in 1963. It was discovered when a strong earthquake caused a collapse that revealed the cave's entrance. Drogarati is an impressive cave with remarkable formations of stalactites and stalagmites. Speleologists say that this cave is about 150 million years old and constitutes a rare geological phenomenon.The cave is about 60m deep and has a constant temperature of 18ΊC. The humidity of the cave reaches 90%. Although it has undergone many damages because of earthquakes, stalactites still hang from the roof and form amazing shapes. As water drops fall onto these shapes and solidify, they give them another shape, long but gradually along centuries. Drogarati Cave consists of two parts. The part accessible to tourists consists of a long corridor that leads to the Royal Balcony, a natural platform of stalactites that beautifully reflect the light. From there, the visitor can see the Chamber of Exaltation, which has great acoustics. This chamber is the biggest hall of the cave; it is sometimes used to host cultural events and has a room for 500 people. To move from one part to the other, you cross colored columns and a small lake. Source: www.greeka.com

Beautifully lit and very well managed (steps and handrails), a very interesting visit for all ages. In the summer, occasional concerts are held in the caves which are fantastic.

Εντυπωσιακό σπήλαιο καθώς η εσωτερική του αίθουσα είναι τεράστια. Κάποιοι τυχεροί μπορεί να πετύχουν και συναυλίες στο χώρο του, ένα θέμα που πρέπει να είναι πολύ ιδιαίτερο. Έχει σταθερή θερμοκρασία στους 18℃, οπότε αποτελεί μια ιδανική επιλογή για επίσκεψη τις ζεστές μέρες του καλοκαιριού. Απλώς χρειάζεται προσοχή σε κάποια σημεία που γλιστράνε!!
