Visit to Kapsia Cave

Experience an amazing tour of Kapsia Cave, one of the top ten Greek caves. Located right outside the village of Kapsia, this cave is known for its complex system of natural sinkholes.

Another feature of the cave is its rare colours (white, yellow, red, green and light blue) and its abundance of stalactites and stalagmites.

Neolithic fossils, human bones and skulls, and clay lamps dating back to the 4th and 5th century AD have also been discovered within the cave.
