Marmarospilia (Cave of the Nymphs)




Description

About 2.5 km west of Vathy on the slope of the hill, one can find Marmarospilia, a geologically interesting cave due to the stalactites and stalagmites. This cave is also identified as the "Cave of the Nymphs" reffered in the Odyddey by Homer as the one where Odysseus hid the presents given to him by Alkinoos, the Phaeacians' King. Unfortunately, due to damages during archaeological investigations several years ago, only the entrance to the cave of the Nymphs is accessible to the visitors; however it is worth seeing!
