Tripa tou Pelaou

Distance: 5.1 km
Estimated driving time: 11 min


This is a vertical chasm cave on the mountain on Agios Matthaios, featuring a rich decoration in its main part, and is believed to have 10 levels of several meters! Although it has been discovered since 1822, it has not been extensively explored. Two exploring attempts took place only recently. An effort was made by the members of the Hellenic Institute of Speleological Research (HISR) and another one by the French speleologist René van Vliet. However, it is yet to be confirmed if the cave actually leads into the sea (hence the name), as the locals believe!
