About “Aspri Petra” -White stone cave

Between 100 -140 million years old and standing at an altitude of 257 meters on the slopes of Mount Zini in the island’s south-western region of Kefalos, the impressive White Stone Cave contains traces of life from the prehistoric through to the Roman period.

The cave, discovered by the Italian Archaeological School, was used as a place of worship. Fossilized remains of humans and numerous vessels of varying shapes and sizes were all found within its walls.

Its interior’s dry, solid rock layers were conducive to its continual use as both a dwelling and place of worship, while the nutriment remains discovered in the cave attest to a people whose lifestyle was pastoral in nature. The White Stone Cave is one of the island’s oldest and most extraordinary sites.
