Ellinokamara Cave

ELLINOKAMARA CAVE. The cave provided shelter to the locals during times of regular pirate raids. Its entrance, measuring 30 m width and 10 m height, has been closed since antiquity with a wall built of equal-sized stones ending at two openings for entering. Further exploration has exposed ceramic items dating back to various epochs, including the Mycenaean era. It appears that the cave was a place of worship over a period extending from the Mycenaean era until Hellenistic times. It is located W of Aghia Marina. In front of it extends a small valley called Paradisi, full of olive trees and fields reaching the sea. Opposite of the cave lies the tiny offshore islet of Armathia, flanked by several other islets.
