The cave of Antiparos is located on Agios Ioannis Hill, and it is famous for its marvellous stalagmite and stalactite formations; here, you will find the oldest stalagmite in Europe! According to an ancient inscription, one of the cave’s visitors was Archilochos the Parian, a great lyric poet of the antiquity. The cave is 90 m. deep, 50 m. wide and 40 m. high, and consists of three chambers. The chapel of Ai Giannis Spiliotis “welcomes” the visitor at the cave’s entrance.
Enjoy the sunshine in beaches along the island’s beautiful coastline. Practice activities such as diving or canoe kayaking on Agios Georgios beach! West of Antíparos there are three uninhabited islets that once used to be significant cultural centres of the Cycladic civilisation: Despotiko, Tsimintiri (between Antíparos and Despotiko) and Strongylo (west of Despotiko). Excavations keep revealing important ancient treasures, which are now exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Paros. The islets can be accessed by small tourist boats departing from Agios Georgios.
