The Cave of Saint John the Hermit

The Cave of Saint John the Hermit

Next to the vestiges of Katholiko monastery is the cave of Saint John the Hermit. On the outside it looks like the entrance of a simple chapel but the cave itself (once the bed of an underground river) is OVER 100 meters long and about 1,500 m2. Visitors can admire the rock where the saint purportedly took his last breath; it is rumoured to have healing effects.
