Cave of Pythagoras

Greek mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras is perhaps the most famous son of Samos, and it is possible to visit his caves on Mount Kerkis. The larger of the two caves was used as a classroom for his students, while the nearby smaller cave was used as his living quarters.

Do & See

Samos is home to a wealth of beautiful beaches, both secluded and lively, but always surrounded by breathtaking scenery. The island's other assets include interesting museums, temples and castles, as well as the Cave of Pythagoras, where the ancient philosopher once resided and taught, and the marvel of ancient engineering that is the Tunnel of Eupalinos.
