Drakos Cave, meaning the cave of the dragon, is a wonderful natural attraction. The cave is decorated with impressive stalactites and stalagmites of different colors. Drakos Cave was associated with marauding pirates as it was thought to be a place where the pirates were hiding their treasures.

Nestled between two steep slopes and offering a fantastic outlook at the islets of Ktenia, Pontikoussa, and Ofidousa, the monastery stands on a hill next to an old castle.
