Trail: Pyrgos - Prophet Elias

The trail starts on the left when coming out of the village of Pyrgos, at the wooden path sign. It runs almost parallel to the road leading to Prophet Elias Monastery, passing by the interesting church of Agioi Apostoloi with its white dome.
A few details about the church, also known as the School of Martinus. It operated as a religious boarding school for children. The students stayed in rooms around the church, which are now unfortunately destroyed. The boarding school operated from 1803 until about 1845.
Passing the church, the trail continues uphill to the monastery of Prophet Elias offering panoramic views all around the island.
Duration : 1 hour
Tip: Don’t forget your hat and plenty of water!
