Good morning, dear friends!
October seems to be the best month to do anything you plan (or don’t plan) on the island. Would you like to go trekking? How about sailing in the caldera and hiking up the volcano? Or maybe relax and sunbathe at the black beaches? Perhaps none of the above, just sit back and enjoy life at a slower pace at your hotel balcony.
… Trail: Pyrgos – Ai Giorgis Katifio
Small, easy but highly impressive trail. Leaving behind Pyrgos village towards the Monastery of Profitis Elias, follow the signs left to the Prophet Elias and Ancient Thera trail. When you reach Agioi Apostoloi Church with the white dome, take the left trail. The route goes from the left side of the mountain, above the quarry, to the picturesque church of Agios Georgios, which is rooted on the slope of the mountain. There, according to tradition, a princess had found shelter (Katefio = shelter), when she was banned by her father, the King.
Duration: 1 hour
