Cave of Agios Mamas

The Cave of Agios Mamas

The Cave of Agios Mamas is located at the location “Pezoules”, in the southern side of the village. It is carved in a rock and constitutes a natural shelter which is 5 metres wide, 4 metres deep and 1.70 metres high. 

According to tradition, the cave was the place where Agios Mamas used to live and the entire village would be used as grassland. The village was ideal grassland due to its natural fencing formed by a rock. The rock rift in the shape of a horseshoe secluded large grassland and a natural sheepfold.
