Saint Ioannis Cave

The ending of footpath three (3) will reward us. At the point where the footpath continues as footpath five (5), we follow footpath three (3) going slightly uphill to our left and after 100 metres we arrive at the much desired end of our excursion. To our left stands out the Cave of the cyclop Polyphemus with its a large opening and to our right the steps that end in a small, whitewashed opening that is the entrance to the Cave of Saint Ioannis. The Cave of Saint Ioannis is among the largest (2,000m2) and the most interesting in the Cyclades. Up to today, only a part of it has been explored. It has rich formations of stalactites and stalagmites. At the cave's entrance, there hang the candles of Saint Ioannis, on whose celebration the locals light small candles and place them on the walls of the cave. We enter the cave crawling and we need to have a torch with us, of course having taken the necessary precautions.
