Melissani Cave, Kefalonia

A spectacular geological phenomenon, Melissani Cave, is one of the most awe-aspiring caves of Greece,if not Europe, located on Kefalonia island. Its natural entrance was created from the collapse of a section of the roof. Melissani Cave is located twenty meters below the surface with a length of 160 meters and a depth that ranges from 10 to 40 meters. It was discovered from the speleologist John Petrohilos in 1951. The lake cave has also an artificial entrance that allows visitors to enter the lake cave. Today, visitors can take a guided tour to Melissani cave in order to admire the rich stalactite formations and the turquoise waters.
