Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
Explore a natural world deep below the ground at Drogarati Caves. 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.

  • Having visited many other Island caves prier to the Drogarti Caves I was under no illusions, Yes it was cold and yes it was wet, having lots of steep steps and slippery pathways. Suppose I was slightl...  read more »
  • To prevent slipping is the floor of the cave is almost entirely covered with a red carpet. In itself to make a nice walk through the cave, but many stalactites and stalagmites are quite damaged or shortened and that is of course a pity. Including the descent to the cave and climb up you're soon an hour along the way in this relatively small cave.

  • Do not miss the Handicraft shop when you visit the cave !!!! Kostas living the dream, so many people just talking about. He lives up the hill and collect the material from all around the woods, and seaside. Great man, great place, fantastic and unique merchandise.
  • I visited this beautiful island in 2001 during a week in Corfu. Never seen anything like it before or since. An underground cavern accessible only by boat that is used to hold concerts. Awesome. Can only imagine the acoustics. Absolutely spectacular and beautiful. Well worth the journey.
  • Like a natural cathedral! Took my breath away, well worth a visit!
  • The caves are very small and you pay a 5 € per person. If we compare with our Italian have nothing to do. To get there, you go down a staircase and into a titlist had minutes you can safely visit. If you have a week and you go around dll ' island of Cephalonia let us jump but if you're staying for a few days you can safely skip it.

  • I mean, maybe too invasive action! Deserved more respect. Too much concrete! But if you go around!
