Agia Sofia Cave is considered a must-visit tourist Attraction in Kythera

Kythera | Agia Sofia Cave

The Agia Sofia cave is a spacious underground cave rich in stalactites and stalagmites


The impressive Agia Sofia Cave is one of three caves bearing the same name, a few kilometers outside the quaint village of Milopotamos, going towards Limniona beach. The cave’s name refers to the adoration of Saint Sofia, whose namesake chapel is found inside the cave. The entrance to the cave is adorned by a chancel carved in the rock with very significant 13th century iconography, in excellent condition. The cave extends to an area of approximately 2000m² but visitors can only see a 200m section. In addition to the murals there is also a later church dedicated to Agia Sofia. Moving deeper into the cave you’ll see an impressive spectacle of stalactites, stalagmites and color variations due to the morphology of the region’s rocks. The average temperature in July is 16 °C and humidity reaches 73%. The cave is open to visitors during the summer months and the helpful guides will inform you about its history and about Kythironiscus Paragamiani, the little isopod that lives only here.
