Milatos Cave, Milatos

(130+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation
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! Use our Milatos trip generator to arrange your visit to Milatos Cave and other attractions in Milatos.
