Katavothres Mill

Katavothres Mill is located here

Round the northern end of the Argostoli peninsula is the mill wheel and sink holes. There is nothing spectacular about the wheel itself, it’s a replica constructed after previous ones were destroyed by the earthquake in 1953.
The site however, is an area of particular interest to geologists: there was water that seemed to mysteriously disappear into sinkholes and go underground. Experiments were carried out using a special dye and it was discovered that the water emerged some 2 weeks later at the east coast village of Karavomylos, having first passed through the Melissani Lake.
Katavothres Club-Restaurant is onsite and you can follow them on Facebook for details of any upcoming events they may be planning.
