Walking first around (perimetric) the Skala Tzavelena you could hear the Acherontas River flowing loudly. The beauty of the nature keeps you at peace. The river, the birds singing, the trees...such a beautiful scenery!!!

When we decided to go back to the car we walked through the dark cave. It was a little cold - as it's under huge stones where no sun lighting is accessible- but it was really interesting.
The story of Tzavelena is the following:
A small but very passionate woman with the name Morpho Tzavela used to live in the village of Souli. Before the Greek revolution (1821) the Turkish used to own the territory but the village of Souli was recusant. After a battle between the men of Souli and the Ali Pasa troops, the women thought of their men dead. Then Morpho decided and urged the women to fight for Souli since now they were on the own. The battle took place at the Skala TZAVELena and this is why the cave is named after Morpho TZAVELa.
