Petralona Cave

Petralona Cave

Petralona Cave is a popular day-tour destination in Halkidiki, Greece.

You’ll be enchanted by the beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, and you’ll be able to observe the remains of Europe’s oldest stalactites and stalagmites, which date back 700,000 years.

The cave is one of the most important prehistoric monuments.

The cave was found by chance in 1959 by Fillipos Chatzaridis, a local shepherd hunting for a spring, and it became famous in 1960 when another local uncovered the Petralonian Archanthopus head, a 670,000-year-old early hominid.
