The cave is beautiful inside and it combines both naturally and technically made landscapes... It is must see attraction and also the guide is relaly helpful and kind... There is no fee required to enter so it would be mistake coming to Kythnos without visiting the Katafyki Cave...

Visited the cave today. Enjoyed the guided tour given by a very knowledgeable young man who kindly repeated everything in English for us. The cave isn’t big, but definitely worth a visit if you’re in the village. Even better, it’s free to see.

Very big cave but ONLY a very very small part of it is accessible. Part natural, part made cave due to iron -mine. Free entrance but you can leave tip for the young guy who guides you in and tells the whole story of the cave and mine. He answers all questions and is very kind and helpful.

An effortless, short and picturesque walk from the parking lot of Dryopida village through the winding spotlessly clean alleys will lead visitors to the cave. There is a young guide at the entrance who will navigate visitors through the well lit, big and airy rooms of the cave and will provide the related information. Suitable for all ages, there is no entrance fee (however donations are welcomed). A must - see when someone is on the island

The cave itself it's not that special, but it's part of some nice history and stories.
The guide only spoke Greek, so my Greek wife did the translation for me and our daughter.

The visit is free.

Really worth a short drive to Driopida to visit the village and walk to the cave. The guided tour is really well prepared and the cave is fantastic!

It is worth seeing it. A local guide shows visitors part of this big cage. He provides sufficient information. Guide is free; there is a box for donations. Visiting hours morning and afternoon.

It's a place you don't expect to find in chora of Kythnos. It is a beautiful little cave (you need no more than 20 minutes to see most of it). Since in Kythnos don't miss it.
