Nymphs Cave Attraction - Ithaca - Ionian
Nymphs Cave Attraction
It is also called Marmarospilia, and it was first mentioned by Homer. A few kilometers north of Vathy, close to Dexia beach, lies the Cave of the Nymphs where, according to tradition, Odysseus hidden the gifts of Feakes when he returned to Ithaca. The cave has two entrances, one for men and one for Gods, as it is said. In its interior, besides the stalactites of the roof, you will see the ruins of a deserted altar. The name of the cave makes perfect sense due to the amounts of water that is found in this area, as the Nymphs were Goddesses of the fresh water.
