Lava Cave in Greece

You'll feel like you’re stepping back in time as you escape into this lava cave in Santorini, Greece. A sailor’s domicile in 1875, the fully restored cave has pearl white walls and incredible views of Caldera’s volcanic scenery and glistening waters.

Enjoy the view while soaking in the cave’s indoor-outdoor hot tub, before heading out to the ruins of a nearby castle to enjoy dramatic sunset views.

Petralona Cave | Across Greece | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it

the Petralona Cave in Chalkidiki (Western Makedonia) is situated about 1 km to the East of the homonymous village, on the western cliffs of the ancient Kalavros mountain (~700 m height), that the inhabitants of the region call Katsika. Cave’s geographic position is about 50 km to the SE of Thessaloniki, 12 Km to the East of Kallikrateia and another 50 Km to the West of Polygyros – Chalkidiki’s capital, in an altitude of about 300 meters from the level of sea. It was found in 1959 by the inhabitant of Petralona, Mr. Philippos Hatzaridis and it became well known all over the world in 1960, when the skull of Arhanthropos was found by another inhabitant of Petralona, Mr. Christos Sarrigiannidis.

Exploring #Drogarati Cave in #Kefalonia #Greece

Exploring #Drogarati Cave in #Kefalonia #Greece | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
3km from the beautiful coastal town of Sami on the island of Kefalonia, deep within the trees and winding road lies a very special place once hidden for million of years, it is Drogarati Cave.
Before a strong earth quake opened it up for the world to see around 300 years ago, Drogarati Cave laid hidden 60 metres underground for what researchers estimate to be 100 million years (during the age of dinosaurs!). Although appearing to be one room, Speleologists have confirmed that the cave has an extension which means that it must be connected with other caves in the area that (unfortunately for us) are currently inaccessible for curious cave explorers. Initially, Drogarati Cave was developed and used by the community of Haliotata, under the supervision of the speleologist Mrs Petrocheilos, but since 1963 it has been open to the public and is now one of Kefalonia’s “must-see” places.
Making my way down the slippery steps to the cave entrance, I felt more concerned about breaking my neck on the way down than excited about exploring a dinosaur-era cave! But once safely at the bottom of the stairs, I ducked down and entered Drogarati Cave, and well…wow!
