Fascinating spectacle at the cave of Drogarati in Kefalonia (pictures)

The cave of Drogarati is one of the “miracles” of the mediterranean sea which you have to visit.
 
Admittedly for whoever decides to take a trip at Kefalonia they surely are waiting for some exciting sights which are worth to find out.

 
The Cave of Drogarati is located 3km from Sami, the depth reaches 95m and the temperature is 18°C , it is considered one of the best caves in Greece

More than 300 years ago, a strong earthquake revealed the entrance to a miracle of nature: Drogarati Cave, a work of art, an astonishing marvel of more than 150 million years old, crafted gradually by nature. Orange and yellow stalactites hang from the roof like curtains while vitreous stalagmites emerge to form spacious chambers.

The big hall of the cave (900m2), is called “Sala of Apotheosis” because of its spectacular acoustics.  When Maria Callas visited the cave, got excited from the sound quality and desired to sing here. Soon, that’s what she did, with few hundreds of people attending. Since then, many famous artists have performed in this fascinating hall. Inside the cavern, the temperature is lower, a refreshing delight in the heat of the summer. Be prepared during cold, winter days!
