The walk up from Old Kardamili is quite tough in the heat of the day and you really need tough shoes and it is essential to take water. The view from the top is quite magnificent and gives an excellent panorama of Kardamil. The actual church is only average and better by many in the area. On the walk up... More

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.

This is quite a hike but worth it for the amazing views. Keep a careful eye out for the black and yellow paint markings at the high tomb. The church was closed when we got there. Wear proper shoes!

A charming little church at the end of an easy 45-minute walk. A good first stretch of the legs before exploring more rugged path in the Mani.

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
