Chairs Around Katavothres near Argostoli, Greece

On the Lassi Peninsula are deep holes along the shoreline called Katavothres. This geological phenomenon seemed to swallow the sea into caverns with no apparent exit. In 1963, a team of geologists discovered the water travels through the island for nearly two weeks before draining into Melissáni Lake. These ravines were first used by Stevens in 1835 to drive a watermill. Today the area is a restaurant with outdoor seating for great views of the bay. Next to it is an old wooden waterwheel.
