About Melissani Cave
The caves have been here since mythical times when they were
said to be inhabited by Nymphs. First explored in the modern
era in 1951 they were renowned for their clear waters, but it is the
opening in the roof caused by an earthquake that has caused them to
become an amazing cathedral of light visited by amazing people from
all over the world.
While there is plenty of information about Kefalonia in general there
was never a dedicated website about it, so we decided to create one with
the key facts you as a visitor to the island and to the cave would
required. This website is not an official guide nor officially
connected with the caves.
