The Cave of Poseidon

In Pigadia or Karpathos town is located the Cave of Poseidon in the area of Mili (top hillside area near Seven stars Hotel). This is a sculptured tomb or sanctuary. There are indications that in front of the tomb were a wooden building. Perhaps the sanctuary was dedicated to the goddess Aphrodite from the fact that they have found statues of Venus in the region. The cave of Poseidon is eroded by the continued use by shepherds today. They haveĀ  also found tombs from the Minoan and Mycenaean era in the surrounding area.
