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!

There is a small chapel inside with an altar where you can light candles. The view is nice, but don't expect to be blown away with amazement.

Nice small cave, nothing special but fun to have a look. Bonus: there's a small church in it. PS. bring a flashlight (or similar), the entrance is quite dark.
