The cave of Pythagoras

The cave of Pythagoras is situated at the foot of the imposing mountain Kerkis and according to tradition it is here that the philosopher took shelter to avoid the persecution of the tyrant Polycrates, who had accused the philosopher that he tried to corrupt the young people of Samos. According to another version, Pythagoras used this cave whenever he wanted to cloister and meditate.

The cave is situated some 3 kilometers far from Kambos Marathokambou.

Access is easy via Kambos Marathokambou. You will drive in a dirt road for 2-3 kilometers; you will park your vehicle and continue on foot for some 200 meters climbing the steep mountainside until reaching the entrance. This is the difficult part of the route.
