Description

Explore the history of Andros
Hiking Tour to Panachrados Monastery

 

Hike through the old venetian trails

Meet your guide in the morning in Chora at Fresco Bar and get a transfer to the abundant ravines of Menites, where a small detour will take us to the springs.
This magnificent hiking trip starts from the green village and via an excellent trail under the shade of plane trees leads to the settlement of Messaria, the old Byzantine center of the island. With our destination being the Panachrantou Monastery (alt.500m), a living historical and architectural monument (wooden carved templon 18th c, library etc), we follow the paved path, crossing the legendary arched bridge of Stichiomeni (The Haunted). A challenging uphill for some minutes we will arrive at  the abandoned village of Petrias, a monument of Andros folk architecture. Upon our arrival to the monastery the hospitable monks will guide us around. After a short rest and a pic nic at the monastery’s yard we will start our way to Chora.
This time heading to Livadia and through the “Potamos” stream we will reach the Capital City  to end our day hiking trip.
