You feel small when walking through the cavity which is shaped like an eardrum. The haunting sounds which were audible came from the nesting pidgeons - quite eery sounds.
Don't miss the impressive stone quarries which lie adjacent to the Greek Theatre. This is where the stone was cut to build the Greek theatre. A huge gash in the rock (the ear) takes you into the vast cavern - even a whisper can be heard.
I knew this was just a cave that had a legend attached and sort of figured it was not really worth the effort, but while you are in the archaeological park, you walk right by it and so it's no effort to stop to see it. It does have a nice curving opening that might look a little like Spock... More

There was a nice walk down through hibiscus and other sweet smelling plants to get to this cave which is indeed shaped like an ear and into which you walk - they could do with some low lighting or something as the deeper in you walk the darker and darker it gets. However, it was an interesting experience
