The Albano chasm is interesting for explorers. It is 70 metres deep, located high in the Taygetos Mountains, home to various stalactites and bats. In Lakonia’s Cape Tenaro near Eastern Mani, known by the name of Cape Matapan (‘end of the world’) as well, it is located at the southernmost tip of mainland Greece and Europe. The cave there is said to represent the entrance of Hades, the underworld. It is even mentioned in the Iliad.
