Cyclop's cave


Descending from the square of Makris to the harbor, a rugged trail of 300 meters length, leads to the cave of the Cyclops Polyphemus, the Cyclops of Homer"s Odyssey. This is where the legend becomes reality, since the the cave and the large rocks that seem as they were thrown into the sea from above, contribute to reanimate the scene. The location has a significant value even during the prehistoric times, when the cave was still in use and just over it, it was built one of the most important settlements of the Neolithic Age in the Balkans.
