Even Macedonian generals sought shelter within its depths after their conspiracy against Alexander the Great in the 4th century BC.

Even Macedonian generals sought shelter within its depths after their conspiracy against Alexander the Great in the 4th century BC.

The exploration of the cave's interior took place in the 15th century AD. A notable event occurred in 1673 when the French ambassador Marquis de Nouadel conducted a Christmas Mass atop a stalagmite resembling an altar. This stalagmite came to be known as the Holy Table, and an inscription was placed beneath it to commemorate the momentous occasion.

One of the cave's remarkable features is the oldest stalagmite in Europe, estimated to be approximately 45 million years old. This ancient formation greets visitors at the entrance, signaling the awe-inspiring journey that lies ahead. With a depth of around 100 meters, the heart of the cave can be reached by ascending 411 steps. The stalactites and stalagmites throughout the cave create a breathtaking spectacle, showcasing unique and stunning shapes of all sizes. As you approach the entrance, you'll also encounter the white chapel of Agios Ioannis Spiliotis, a beautiful structure constructed in the 18th century.
