Characteristic of this cave is that a boat can pass through its entrance. And this is because it has a height of 5m and width of 20m.

Catacombs

The Catacombs are the subterranean cemetery of the first Christian centuries in Milos. Located on the hillside southwest of the village of Tripiti in the area of the ancient city's ruins of the seaside village of Klima. In the area, there are smaller underground cemeteries, in the form of Catacombs. They are Milos’ most famous monument and unique in its kind in Greece Slabs of different sizes covered all tombs. Some arcosolia save painted decorations and fragments of inscriptions on the drum or conch for depositing offerings and lamps, and in some cases for the burial of infants.

Today’s form of the Catacombs is due to some 20th century interventions, such as the entrance to the funeral chamber B and the passages that unite the three, originally independent, catacombs. For the opening of these passages some walls and arcosolia had to be demolished. The existence of only one entrance was considered necessary, not just for reasons of guarding, but also due to the collapse of the Catacombs’ original entrances. The disintegration of the dilapidated stone and the collapse of part of the roof of chamber B led to the construction of a crude cement support which destroyed the architectural remains that documented the existence of the tombs’ monumental façades. Today only chamber B is accessible to the visitors, who can move around the room on a wooden platform that protects the floor but mars the monument’s aesthetics.
