The first human inhabitat area

The Cave of St George can be found in the slopes of mount “Psalidi” near Kalithies village, located around 2klm. from Faliraki. At the mountain foot you will find the picturesque chapel of St George, with easy access from the main road. From the chapel you can easily see the cave mouth. The climb to the cave is around 15-20 minutes and it is a pleasant, medium difficulty trekking route.
