The Cave of Saint Timothy in Kea

The Cave of Saint Timothy is a hollow in shale rock, 7-8 meters deep, in which Saint Timothy (Aug. 16) lived during the summer months in asceticism and reposed in peace in 1590. According to the local tradition, there is the inexplicable phenomenon of water appearing inside the cave only in the summer months. Next to the cave is a church dedicated to the Saint, the foundations of which were established on July 13, 1993, and it was consecrated on July 13, 1999.
