  • [01] Lake Melissani: The lake of the nymph

  • [01] Lake Melissani: The lake of the nymph

    The summer sun rises and light enters from the rooftop, reflected by the waters of Lake Melissani, the lake of the nymph Melissanthi, that turn the light into a breathtaking kaleidoscope of colors on the cave's rocks.

    According to myth, the nymph Melissanthi cast herself off the rocks to the lake when the god Pan rejected her. The lake is situated two km outside of the town of Sami, central-western Cephalonia. The cave-lake was discovered in 1951, and the waters are a mixture of sea and fresh water. A tour of the lake is possible by boat and the visitors may swim in the cold waters
