We will meet at the bus stop of the port of Aegiali, where we will board our bus. We will then be driven to the capital of the island Chora, getting off at “Kalogeriko” at the upper side of the village.
We will walk through the picturesque alleys of the settlement and explore its traditional architecture until reaching the lower area of Chora, from where our driver will pick us up and drive us to the Monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissa.
We will have the chance to visit this impressive structure, built 1000 years ago in the cliffs 300 meters above the sea, and admire the views to the endless blue.
We will continue with a visit to the Convent of Agios Georgios Valsamitis, built upon the ruins of an ancient water oracle, where Sister Irene, the only nun living there, will welcome us. We will then head to the area of Katapola, where we will have a walk around the village streets and visit the local organic garden. The farmer will introduce us to his garden and methods of production, a unique chance to experience the heart of Katapola. We will then have time to enjoy a coffee or meal at one of the numerous restaurants and cafés of the area, before returing to Aegiali.
During summer season, following our visit to Agios Georgios Valsamitis, we will head instead towards the beach of Mouros, where we will have the chance to enjoy swimming in crystal clear waters, surrounded by a spectacular rocky setting. We will have time to enjoy a coffee or meal at the restaurant above the beach before boarding our bus and continuing the program towards the port of Katapola.
To enter monasteries, visitors are required to wear long trousers/skirts and cover their shoulders. Even though clothes might be available at the entrance, we recommend you bring your own. Women’s skirts/dresses must cover the knees. Trousers are not allowed for women.
