    Hyvä pysähdyspaikka rotkon reunalla
    Noin tunnin ajomatkan jälkeen Topilian tunnelin jälkeen sijaitseva luola on näkemisen arvoinen. 250 askelmaa luolalle, mutta näkymät palkitsevat. Luolassa on mukavan viileää. Luolassa lyhyt kävelyreitti, joka on valaistu eli näkee kyllä. Kuvaaminen kuitenkaan kännykällä oikein onnistu. Ei pääsymaksua. Bussiretkeläiset Elafonissiin pysähtyvät monesti myös täällä. Alaosassa ravintola, josta saa mm. tuorepuristettua appelsiinimehua lasi 3.50e tai puolen litran pullo 5e.

    A memorable trip with wonderful energies
    A beautiful path leads to the cave. Leave the car at the foot of the mountain, from there a winding staircase leads to the cave. The view is fantastic, the different plants on the mountainside are amazing, you can walk around the inside of the cave, there is a small path leading through it. You can comfortably see everything. It's fantastic, well worth a visit.

    Unexpected
    Stopped here on an organised coach trip to Elafonisi. Expected some tiny hermits cave,so had a coffee at the tavern/cafe next to the road before discovering we had to pant up 257 steps. The cave was very large. No idea as to the history of it but a nice place to spend a few minutes and worth a stop. The cafe sells bottles of orange juice which tasted lovely and very refreshing. Recommend both.

    A must see!
    A hidden gem. There’s no charge and a wonderful view of Topolia Gorge from the cave once you’ve climbed the steps! There’s a path round the inside of the cave which makes it easy to walk around. Definitely recommend.

    הרבה מדרגות, לא קל, אבל שווה. ובדרך חזרה למטה שווה להיכנס להפוגה קצרה למזנון בתחילת המדרגות, שירות אדיב שמח חייכני, מחירים נוחים, ושירותים נקיים כמו בבית! Lots of stairs, not easy, but worth. And on the way back down worth getting a short break to the buffet at the beginning of the stairs, happy courteous smiling service, affordable prices, and clean toilets like home!

The views around were wonderful and the cave with its stalagmites was awesome. We loved it and recommend to go there.

Magical mystical pure bliss
But a climb so not for those less prepared to do that
Free but donate as it needs to be maintained better

The steps up to the caves were a hard slog but well worth the effort once you get to the cave, plus there is a small gift shop and cafe on the way up where you can take a rest. The views across the country side from the cave were amazing and inside the cave was fascinating, it was well worth the climb up the steps.

We were recommended to visit here by the hotel concierge and are really pleased we did. Parking is at the base of the cave and then their are 257 steps up the side of the mountain to the cave itself. The cave is very spiritual and has lovely views across the valley.

We visited mid week in the off season so all the amenities at the cave were closed.

Brilliant stop off on the way back from elafonissi. Lovely climb up the hill and surprisingly deep cave, can see new stalagmites forming. Use a torch to look around. And is free!

It's a glorified hole in the wall. A pretty sizeable "cave" but not deep or mysterious in any way.

Upside, it's free and on the way to Elafonisi beach.
