The Cave of Panagia Arkoudiotissa

 

The Cave of Panagia Arkoudiotissa (also known as Arkoudospilios, the bear cave) is located on the way to the monastery of Katholiko, about 15 minutes walk from Gouverneto monastery.

The name comes from the large central stalagmite in the form of a bear that is ready to drink water. According to legend, the Virgin Mary turned the bear that was stealing the water of the monks living nearby into stone.

The cave was already a place of worship to the goddess Artemis in antiquity.
