Atziganospilios Cave
(3 votes)

Atziganospilios is located within short distance (10' walk) from the village of Adrianos, in site Koukistres. It is about 25km southwest of Agios Nikolaos, before entering the gorge of Adrianos.

After entering the cave, four large rooms and five small rooms are opened, with rich cave decor. The total length of the cave is 48m, but the total route approaches 100m.

In one of the small chambers, locals found human bones and shells. It seems that the cave once served human or burial needs.
