The Cave of Kalampakis of Paros
The Cave of Kalampakis is located in Marpissa, near Agios Georgios Lagadas. Findings show that it was inhabited by humans in prehistoric times. There are stalagmites and stalactites, but exploring is dangerous as the cave is vast, deep and difficult to access. Knowledge of the area and special equipment are required to explore the fabled cave, which is also known as the Cave of the Demons. Legend has it that Agios Arsenios imprisoned the demons possessing the animals of a blasphemous farmer that wreaked havoc in the surrounding area. After capturing them, he confined them in the cave, which he then sealed until the Second Coming.
