The cave of Perama in Ioannina

The entrance of the cave

From the caves of Epirus the most important is the one which is inside the hill of Perama. It is a distance of 4 km. from Ioannina, on the road to Metsovo. The cave was found in the beggining of the former century and in 1940 the cave was a shelter against the bombardisms.

The professor K. Kasvikis in 1952 did the first exploration inside the cave and the couple of the cavers Ioannis and Anna Petrochilou εexplored the place scientifically.

The halls in a route of 850 metres are full of stalactites and stalagmites of strange shapes, colours, lightness of crystals, etc. A fantactic decoration that make the cave one of the best of the country.
