Drogarati Cave, Chaliotata

3.8
#2 of 7 in Nature in Cephalonia
Explore a natural world deep below the ground at Drogarati Cave. The cave was discovered 300 years ago, when an earthquake created the opening. At 60 m (197 ft) below ground, the cave is about 18 C (64 F), and incredibly humid. Inside, you can appreciate the many stalagmites and stalactites that have been slowly developing over hundreds of years. Test out the acoustics in the cave's main hall, Sala of Apotheosis, where concerts and shows are often held.

  • Cool caves with a route you can walk around. If you like natural features and stalactites then you should enjoy this place. There are some steep step into the caves, but overall really cool.  more »
  • It is breathless when you step inside. Be sure to visit, and be sure to dress coolly inside. You really need to get around this  more »
  • We visited the cave on the same day that we did Melissani Lake and Sami on a day trip from the southern coast of Kefelonia. It is a really interesting place to visit. There are quite a lot of steps...  more »

  • Huge cave, interesting to visit. Price is not expensive, 5 euros per person. No time pressure, you can walk there as long as you want. It is slippery there, but if don't wear flip flops (well you know where you go) everything should be fine.
  • The caves are quite impressive, there is only one cavern really. Steep steps down and time taken to look around is quite short, few good areas to take photos. It is cheap though so can't really grumble and it would be a shame to not go if visiting kefalonia. Very cool inside so good to get out of the heat for a while, staff helpful and there was a chap inside to answer any questions
  • Visited with a cruise ship excursion. We were a lot of people. We found the steps Dow’s to the cave a bit tricky as it was slippery with a lot of warnings. Once inside the magic begins nicely illuminated and well defined paths. Friendly guides explained all details.
  • This is one big cavern rather than smaller passages that you wander through. It is cool inside but the floor is a bit slippery. The stalactites are impressive. There are quite a few steep steps into the cave.
  • Beautiful caves that I wanted to introduce my children to. Also a bonus to visit on a hot day to get some relief from the heat. Be aware there are lots of steps going down and up again.
