The Cave of St John the Hermit looks like an oblong arcade. Its length is about 135 meters and the scientists believe that it is essentially a prehistoric river bed.
The history of the cave is associated with the ascetic life of the hermit John, since he lived there – according to researchers – in the 6th century.

In the village there are many pleasant tavernas, restaurants and kafenions, a post office, a medical center, a supermarket and bank / ATM’s.
