Diros Caves Greece

Back in ancient times, the caves were inhabited and had many different uses including a cemetery, workshop, place of worship, shelter and storage area for goods.

It was later discovered that an earthquake had trapped the cave’s inhabitants inside, and their skeletons remain there today.
