Meeting Point the Apoikia Village Square where we start a light walk to Pythara Waterfalls, a unique beauty area! The paved footpath descends with destination Gyalia Beach and alongside the river we cross a verdant landscape with oaks, olive and walnut trees, leading to a traditional restored olive press, the Bistis-Mouvelas Tower and the Stenies Village, a seamen village. The route crosses the riverbed over the Leontos bridge, and after a while the path leads up to the Fabrica, an interesting derelict factory, which gave life to the area before the second world war, producing pasta using a large watermill, and later a mechanized steam mill. The footpath follows the river, traversing walled vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and impressive old mansions heading towards one of the island's most important wetlands, Gyalia where we rest and swim at the beach.
