Caving in Greece

Call them time capsules of the past or natural museums, caves are an exciting place for historians, archaeologists, speleologists, scientists, secret cults, religious hermits, pirates and much more.

Natural formations such as secluded ponds, stalactites and stalagmites are amazing in their own right, while the ancient history, religious events, rites of passage and acting sanctuaries that these caves were connected to reveal so much about the millennia worth of fascinating history and geography all over Greece.

Magic, mysticism, rare fauna, love stories and traditions of shelter against pirates or invaders await those who want to tease out a cave's secrets.
