Glyfada (or Vlychada) Cave of Diros is one of the finest caves in the world. It is located on the west coast of the Laconian Peninsula, in the bay of Diros.
The cave started being formed hundreds of thousands of years ago. The stalactites and stalagmites exisitng today under the water were formed when the surface of the sea was far below its current level.
Inside the cave there have been found fossilized bones of panther, hyena, lion, deer, ferret and the largest hippopotamus in Europe. Close to its natural entrance there have been found ceramics indicating the human presence.
