The cave complex of Diros is considered to be the first of the three most beautiful and impressive lake caves in the world (along with this of Padirac in South France and the Jeita Grotto in the capital of Lebanon, Beirut) because of its multicolored and wonderful decoration.
The spectacular cave complex of Diros, a truly underground miracle of nature, offers the chance to travel back to the Neolithic era and even further. The Paleolithic and Neolithic artifacts found here, many of which are in display in the museum, mean that the caves were one of the earliest inhabited places in Greece.
There you can admire the beautiful, gleaming and dramatic formations of stalactites and stalagmites formed millions of years ago among other things. Diros is also a treasure-house of information relating to the prehistoric fauna that existed in the region we know today as the Peloponnese.
The cave of Vlychada covers an area of 16,700 m2 and since 1949 about 2,800 water passages have been explored. A 2.5-km-long winding passageway is the main route for sightseeing. During a 40-min boat trip, the visitor comes across an intricate network of passages and galleries.
The trip through these underground waterways will stay in your mind forever. The Diros Caves are one of the most important natural sites in Greece.
