This is a very different attraction - it is free as at this time there is no-one looking after it - this means that there are no lights in the cave and no guide or anyone to tell you the history so you need to look up the history before you go to have a feeling of what the people... More

The walk to the cave is absolutely beautiful, and make sure you read upon your history before so that you are able to appreciate what happened there. I think that it is so nice because you don't need a tour guide and there are no other tourists so you are able to take all the time you need to take... More

Happy train visit to Milatos and Sissi, the guide took us around Milatos old town but didn't recommend heading to the cave.

I can't do better on finding the cave, or the visit itself, than Geobar01's excellent description from October 2013, so I won't even try. We came from Sissi and had no real problems finding the cave, but the journey itself was a good part of the visit - excellent views and places to stop for a little while and, as... More

The roads to the cave are quite minor and narrow. Once you see the sign, park on the right (on the bend). Walk back to the sign and follow the footpath to the cave, about a 15 min walk. Take a torch as there is no lighting in the cave. The church is worth a look.

We were staying in nearby Sissi and the first time I visited was on my own early one morning whilst out exploring the nearby area in my car before breakfast. I followed the signs from Epano Milatos (most of them homemade or spray painted on rocks) up the mountain road to the cave. The views looking back towards Epano Milatos... More

Milatos Cave (no admission fee) can be a little difficult to find even with a map as the best available from stores in the area are still at a scale of 1:100,000 that don’t show in detail how to get there and local road signs could be better. If you find yourself in Milatos as we did then you still... More

The story behind this cave is tragic and thankfully a man outside told us about it before we went in, so we found the cave really atmospheric. However sadly there is no information about it at the site - a church inside the cave with a tomb housing human bones is the only clue. If you are brave enough to... More
