Kastania’s Cave is not only a beautiful natural cavern, but also a spa for bees.
The wonders of nature never cease to amaze me. Kastania’s Cave, located in Greece was discovered by a man named Kostas Stivaktas, at the beginning of the last century. Stivaktas would sit in the fields and watch bees enter a crack in the rocks (because honestly, what else was there to do back then?). He noticed that when the bees left, they seemed refreshed, as if they had just enjoyed a mani-pedi-botox deep tissue massage and seaweed wrap.
Stivaktas soon broke open the small fissure and discovered a beautiful, rare cavern chock-full of stalactites, stalagmites, and colorful rock formations. Apparently the bees were enjoying the benefits of a small well located inside the cave, and using it as their own personal day spa.

The cave is over 3,000,000 years old, and has been open to the public for tours since 1958.
If cave-exploration is your thing, Kastania’s cave should probably be somewhere on your list. Worst-case scenario, you leave the cavern looking just a little bit younger. I think we can all agree there is nothing wrong with that #AmIRight?via ]
