HIGHLIGHTS

  • Visit the Monastery of Chozoviotissa
  • Enjoy stunning views to the big blue
  • Discover a remote rural settlement



We will start our walk in Chora and descend towards the impressive Monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissa. We will visit the Monastery and have a close look at this amazing 1000-year-old structure and the views to the endless blue it offers. In continuation, we will follow the path on the southern slopes of Mt. Profitis Ilias, a beautiful hike amid one of the most breathtaking sceneries of the Aegean. After passing the areas of Theoskepasti, Xenodochio and Kapsala, we will arrive at the semi-abandoned rural settlement of Asfondylitis, where we will have lunch at the only restaurant giving life to this remote location. We will then walk through the old village, famous for its stone engravings, continuing along the path towards the area of Aegiali. After passing the saddle, we will walk along the northern slopes and have a clear view of the bay of Aegiali. The first village we will cross is Potamos, from where we will descend towards the port and bay of Aegiali.
