Add Comment to Lake Melissani(underground)
Date visited
A wonderful underground lake where they have found votives to the god Pan.

You go down a tunnel, and then get into a row boat that takes you around the underground lake.

Part of the cavern is open to the sky.

On an island in the lake, earthen figurines of Pan, and plaques depicting an embossed female figure and a procession of nymphs were found. These are exhibited at the archaeological museum of Cephalonia.
