Description

You will meet the picturesque village Perama only four kilometres from Ioannina on the road that goes from Metsovo to Trikala. A mythical world beyond your imagination waits for you there to discover it. The Cave of Perama was created 1.500.000 years ago in the interior of Goritsa hill, exactly above the village. It was discovered by residents of Perama in 1940 and speleologists Anna and Ioannis Petrohilos started exploring it in 1956. This real ornament is known for the variety of stalactites and stalagmites that are found there and it is included in the best caves in the world. The temperature in the interior is maintained constant in 17 οC, while the temperature of the water is 14 οC. You will meet a lot of rooms with particularly rich decor on the way whose length is about 1.500 metres. This decor is constituted by stalactites that begin from the roof of the rocks, stalagmites that begin from the soil, pearls of caves etc. You will also see fossils of bones and teeth from a rare species of bear, the cave bear that was found there for the first time. Your guide will explain how the Cave was created and will report the names that the couple Petrohilos gave to the unique shapings and the rooms you will see. The Cave however will challenge you to use your imagination in order to find your own representative names depending on what each shaping reminds each one of you personally. The wealth of forms and colours, the variety of shapings and the magnificence of the space will definitely move you. We guarantee you a wandering that you will never forget!!
