Pythagoras Cave, Marathokampos, Samos, Greece
The Cave of Pythagoras is the place where the famous mathematician and philosopher was hiding when the tyrant of Samos, Polycrates, was chasing after him. It is located on the eastern side of Mount Kerkis, the highest mountain of the Aegean, at a distance of 3 km from Votsalakia beach, and its access is quite difficult.
There are actually two caves, one close to the other. It is said that Pythagoras was living in one of them and used the other cave for teaching. One cave is flatter and therefore more appropriate for a living. It has three rooms but you can visit only the two. It ends in two gorgeous steeps and if you walk a bit more, you will meet a spring from where it is believed that Pythagoras used to drink water.
