Kalavrita private tour : quite a spectacle and worth the visit!!!
Kalavrita private tour is highly suggested for all of you who have only one day to visit and explore Athens.
It is a beautiful little town known for its contribution to the Greek revolution against the Turks as well as for the resistance during World War II, when the Germans burnt down the town and on the 13th of December 1943 they executed all 1,200 men aged 13 and over. A little further from the village of Kalavrita the monastery of Agia Lavra where the first flag of freedom was raised by Bishop Germanos of Patras when the Greeks rebelled against the Turks on March, 21 of 1821 still exists in good condition.
The monastery of Mega Spileon has been built at the height of 294 m. against a vertical and almost smooth cliff. The miraculous icon of Mother Mary (one of the four icons painted by Apostole Loukas) made of wax and mastic gum is kept here.
The Cave of the Lakes still impresses visitors with its name. Lakes in the interior of the cave is not something ordinary or universal, nor for Greece, it is a unique geological phenomenon.
