Ioannina - Perama Cave Perama Cave
The cave of Perama, Ioannina is located only 4 kilometres from the city centre on a hill named Goritsa. It is a unique, natural ecosystem and the audiovisual material at the entrance, the rare palaeontological findings and the path inside the cave will be something you will never forget. It belongs to the limestone caves category and has 19 different types of stalactites and stalagmites which is a very large number. It is the first cave in Greece that could be visited by tourists, but what makes it one of a kind is the size, the rare kinds of stalactites and stalagmites as well as the fact that it is still formed, something that you will understand because at some point a drop will fall on your face or your clothes. In 1956, fossilized bones and teeth of the cave bear were discovered. The cave was discovered by accident in 1940, during the Second World War by citizens of Perama who were running out of their houses trying to find shelter from the bombings. At the exit of the cave, which is 25 metres higher than the entrance, you will have the chance to admire the view of the city of Ioannina and the lake with the island of Ali Pasas. There is a path that leads you back to the entrance of the cave. At Perama you can find hotels, cafes and restaurants where you can try local wine and traditional pies from Ioannina.
