Kouloukona Caves
 
CAVES AND GULVES OF MOUNTAIN KOULOYKONAS
The caves of Talus’ Mountains are smaller, which is to be expected due to this mountain’s lower altitude and more limited limestone thickness; however, there are numerous morphologically different caves with rich décor scattered on every summit and every slope; some of them are 'tafkos tis Langufas' (the grave of Langufa), 'Moungri', 'Yomatas', etc. Caves on this Mountain, which answers to the name 'Kouloukonas' are a natural continuation – just like the mountain itself – of Mt. Psiloritis. As a whole, the two mountains comprise a special geologic heritage monument for this island and has been associated with the lives of its human inhabitants for centuries; this is reflected in the numerous legends and stories that have survived to our days.
