Milatos Cave

Milatos Cave is situated 2,5 km outside the village of Milatos on the steep slope of a gorge and has an area of 2100 sq m.

The number of stalactites and stalagmites in the Milatos Cave is small, but offer a wonderful picture. The amazing arrangement of the pillars divides the cave into numerous caverns.

The chapel of Saint Thomas in the cave commemorates the catastrophe in the year 1823. 3,600 men, women and children sought refuge in the cave but had to surrender after 15 days and were then either killed or mistreated or even sold to Egypt as slaves by the Turkish occupying troops.
