The cave of Agia Sophia in Mylopotamos


This is an absolutely beautiful cave. It is located to the west of the village of Mylopotamos at an altitude of 50 m in a spectacular area, the small gulf of Kokala. The first people to have shown a consistent interest in the cave are Ioannis Petrocheilos and his wife Anna. In 1955 Anna Petrocheilos, in memory of her late husband, finished exploring the cave on her own devices and had it mapped. As you walk in you will notice the small chapel of Agia Sophia with its wooden temple sheltering very well preserved 18th-century paintings. Areas accessible to the public form a path 200 m long where visitors can observe stalagmites and stalactites through a network of rooms and small corridors. The average temperature of the cave is 17°C and humidity reaches 75%. The cave is open to the public and civil servants from the municipal corporation of Kythera will serve as your guides.
