We visited the unknown for most, Sotiras cave.


Located between Karavomylos and Poulata villages and the name comes from the church of Sotiras (Savior).

It was demolished by the earthquake of 1953 and is very close to the cave entrance.

With an extremely steep and flimsy entrance, it makes the descent to the cave serious and dangerous,

while using ropes and speleological equipment is more than necessary.


Sotiras Cave connects with Chiridoni Cave.


Together they form a part of the large cave system in Sami region.

Probably since before the big earthquake of Kefalonia all these caves were communicating together.
The treasure that lies 50 meters below the earth's surface, rewards all the effort.
Enjoy our beautiful photos!
