The Korikio Andro, considered the habitat of the god Pan and the Korikian nymphs, is located at an altitude of 1310 meters and consists of three ‘rooms’. The first is very large and has a length of 60 meters, a width of 26 meters and is 12 meters high. It is said that in ancient times pagan rituals were carried out there. During the first century A.D., Pausanias visited the cave and described it as the most remarkable of his time.

In 1969, French archaeologists unearthed various ancient artifacts and objects used for worship. During the years of Turkish rule and the Greek Revolution, the cave was used by Greek rebels and during World War II it was used as headquarters for operations of the Greek resistance forces.
