One of the most beautiful caves of Corfu is located in the village of Spartilas. The Platesgourna cave is hidden in an olive grove and without a guide it's impossible to find. The cave has two small entrances. The cave is accessible through only one entrance. Crawling or descending in supine position is necessary.
After the main hall of the cave there is a big room with impressive decorations. The Platesgourna cave has many stalactites, several groups of stalagmites and columns all around. Some stalagmites are several metres tall! This cave is extremely vulnerable because of its unique and unimpaired interior.
Flora & Fauna:
During a visit to the cave in 2019 a few cave crickets were spotted. Find more information about the cave cricket on Corfu here.
