A lovely walk on earth roads and paths to Agios Lavrentios and onwards to Drakia. We recorded the route one way but walked there and back in 4 hours (plus time for a coffee and picnic stop along the way)

Approvvigionamento

An excellent cafe for some refreshment.

The only place open when we passed through, it was excellent. Here the path leaves the village square for the path to Drakia. This point is 4km from our start point and takes one hour. You may wish to return from here if you want a shorter walk back to the start point.

Leaving the square towards Drakia turn left at the path intersection.

Keep left onto the narrow path

Monumento

Memorial to the massacre of villagers in December 1943

Here we finished the walk. Now you can explore the village find refreshments and perhaps like us walk back to the start on the same route. It is worth it! Great views on the return path.
