EXCURSIONS- Drogarati Cave

Drogarati's Cave, which is close to Sami, was
discovered 300 years ago, when a part of it was
destroyed because of a strong earthquake, and so
the entrance was created. The cave's depth is 60m
from the ground level, the temperature is 18C and the humidity is 90%. Initially, the cave was developed and
used from the community of Haliotata, under the
supervision of the speleologist Mrs. Petrohilos ,and since 1963 it is open for the public.
Drogarati is dated more than 100 years.
The speleologists have confirmed that the cave has an extension, that however is not approachable. That means
that the cave is probably connected with other caves in the area. It's got many stalactites and stalagmites created from the rain, which comes through the rocky level of the cave, it corroses it and deposits its elements on the edge of the stalactites. A stalactite grows one cm. every 100 years. Unfortunately, many stalactites are broken, some of them because of the earthquakes, some others because of human lack of sense for the magnificent natural piece of work.
Music and other shows are organized in the big hall of the cave (900sq.m - called "Hall of Apotheosis" because of its perfect acoustic), .
