If you like history, churches and real Greece, you much see this place. You will not be disappointed. Excellent example of what ancient Greece is all about.

The hike up from Kardamilyi can be a bit steep and rocky in areas, but nothing someone in moderate shape can't manage. The views are beautiful and the old church at the top is an interesting destination.

And a beautiful bizantine little church perched high up and facing the deep blue sea. It can be reached by a little trail from "downton" Kardamili
