Panos Cave - Mt Parnitha A cave of ancient rituals of the Greek god Pan and his followers the Nymps. It is a cave located north of Athens near the province of Filli in Parnitha mountain. One of the early statements about the cave was given by the historian Pausanias that describes the location and characteristics of this small but beautiful cave. This cave also named “Lichnospilia”, because of the 2,000 oil lamps that were found by archaeological survey. The cave consists of two chambers that connect with each other with a very narrow and low passage. In order to pass through to the second chamber, we have to crawl through the passage. The second chamber has a wonderful basin decorated by stalactite and stalagmite material. The cave ends with a big crack where we can find a second entrance that has a rope descent to the ground floor. Close to the location that we will leave our vehicles stands the Filli Caste, a fortified outpost of the ancient Athenians of the 4th century BC, a megalithic archaeological site, worth visiting.
