Milatos Cave, Milatos
(4.1/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Explore Milatos Cave, best known as the center of an 1823 battle between the brave local rebels of Milatos and the invading Turkish army, which ended tragically. You'll need a flashlight to explore the pitch-black caves, and many recommended taking transport to the site as the walk from the village is quite long. Within the cave, look for a small church built in 1935: it sits near a large circular opening revealing some spectacular views of the surrounding area, so bring along a camera!

  • Quite unique in its kind. If you are traveling in the neighborhood then give this a quick stop. Don't expect to be there for hours. It will take you about thirty minutes.
  • Very nice cave with a lot of history
  • At the "end of the world" with interesting historical relation to Create freedom movement against Hasan Pasha troops in 1823.
  • Brilliant views, the whole trip worth it.

  • Tourists rarely lost to this cave. Also, it has a wonderful view of the sea along the access road to this cave. Dreamy.
