Ellinospilios Cave - 4.5 out of 5 based on 4 votes

Ellinospilios cave is a beautiful cave of Afrata area where significant archaeological findings have been revealed, such as tombs. In some places there are ponds with water, where bubbles float from calcareous material, considered a rare cavernous material. With the slightest water turbulence bubbles break and produce a noise like tearing of fabric.

The path to the cave is quite rough due to the rocky terrain of the region and is mainly suggested to experienced walkers. In order to enter the cave it is necessary to have appropriate expertise and equipment. The path to the cave is located north of Afrata and continues northeast.
