Description

After the peak up we drive for 2 hours reaching the famous Diros Caves. They were explored by the speleologists Ioannis and Anna Petrochilos. The Alepotrypa cavern was discovered in 1958. Archaeological research begun in 1970 under the direction of archaeologist Georgios Papathanassopoulos. In the course of the late Neolithic period (4000 - 3000 BC), the cave was extensively used as shelter, dwelling, workshop, storage place for goods, cemetery and a place of worship. This is a unique experience traveling barely a subterranean river length 1,600 m. The magic of the color, and the beautiful shapes, formed by the stalactites and stalagmites makes a unique spectacle. After the ongoing research at the cave of Diros to date, the total length reaches 6.500 meters and is still unknown the final length. Arriving at Stoupa that is also called fairy of Messinian Bay for the exceptional beauty of the natural landscape, is a newly constructed settlement that was evolved rapidly into a famous tourist resort. Stoupa has become globally famous for its two beautiful beaches, the beach of Stoupa right in front of the village and the beach of Kalogria. The two picturesque, shallow, sandy and organized beaches with clear waters attract visitors from all parts of the world. Arriving at the beautiful seaside village, Kardamyli is in a magnificent natural landscape full of contrasts, 38km away from Kalamata. The dense olive groves alongside the crystal blue water, the green hills with majestic cypress trees over distant snowcapped mountains and breathtaking sunsets of the Messinian Bay compose a theatrical scenery. The imposing Tower of Mourtzinos in Kardamyli which was accessible via a wooden retractable bridge, was characterized as a historical preservable fortress.
