Cave of Anthropograva

The Cave of Anthropograva is located near the village Klimatia, at an altitude of 270 meters, just a few meters from the road which leads to the monastery of Agia Triada, in the northern part of the island. The Cave of Anthropograva is the most interesting among the recently known and accessible caves of the island. The road which reaches very close to it, is covered with asphalt, while access to it is through a cobble-paved path.

The entrance to the Cave of Anthropograva has an opening reaching 4 meters and a height reaching approximately 2,50 meters. The total area of the cavern is about 500 square meters. Its maximum length reaches 25 meters and its maximum width is 24 meters. The cavern has some of the most beautiful stalagmites and stalactites that are found in Greek caves but, unfortunately it is not accessible to simple walkers. Research has revealed pieces of archaic pottery, a Byzantine coin and sickles – which suggest the use of the Cave of Anthropograva from archaic times to the recent past.
