Close to the village Matzavinata, in the Paliki peninsula, there is a rock that has the ability to move rhythmically and constantly. This is a unique phenomenon in the world and its value lies in the fact that it’s extremely bizarre, since it’s against one’s logic, which would say that such a big rock would be stable and unmovable.

It’s said that quite a few years ago, ships from the British fleet tried to move the rock, without the desired outcome for them.

After the earthquakes of 1953 the rock’s movement became greatly limited and practically stopped due to the moving of its base. Some believe that there is still a small, noted movement by placing a knife in a fissure, but, in any case, the existence of the phenomenon has ceased to exist, at least to the extend it used to be.
