Pythagoras Cave
Pythagoras Cave

Welcome to the place where Pythagoras, the great philosopher, mathematician, astrologer, doctor and musician, spent a part of his life. 

There are 2 caves and two chapels. The main steps lead to the Cave of Santa Maria ( Panagia Sarandaskaliotisa). 

Pythagoras used his bigger cave for teaching and to provide drinking water but he did not live there because his cave is too high up to the mountain and too steep. 

The cave goes back about 80 meters but you can walk only 15 to 20 meters until you reach the Holy water. As you go up before the first chapel ( Saint John) there is a small path on the right side that it goes to the cave of Pythagoras. The path is steep and it finishes under a fig tree. Then you must climb 1-2 meters and to follow the orange marks with spray to find entrance. 

This cave, Pythagoras used for staying because you can live there, it’s more flat than the other. There are three rooms but you can go only in two of them.
