Mountain 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 in parallel with the road leading to Prophet Elias, 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 unfortunately destroyed now.
The boarding school operated from 1803 until August 1846, when it stopped working due to financial problems.

Passing the church, the trail continues uphill to the monastery of Prophet Elias offering panoramic views all around the island.
Duration : 1 hour
