Koutouki cave

Unfortunately it was not possible to take a picture in Koutouki cave which is located on the eastern slopes of Mt. Ymittos and is almost unknown for tourists coming to Athens. But this cave is wonderful and worth visit.
It was discovered accidentally in 1926. It is 510m above sea level on the eastern slopes of Mt. Imitos, 4 km. from the village of Paiania (Liopessi) in the Messogia district of Attica, to which it is connected by an asphalt road. The cave has an area of 3,800 m2 and consists of one main cavern with several partitions festooned with fine, multicolored groupings of stalactites, stalagmites and columns.
Artistically concealed artificial lighting in this cave is considered to be among some of the best in the world!
