Kouloukona Caves
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.
