View-to-Kypri-Beach-Andros

Our half day hiking tour starts from the fertile valley of Gavrio. Following a "narrow" path along the stream, we cross olive trees, farm cottages and watermills to make our first stop in the picturesque village of St. Peter with the beautiful fountain. A short detour leads us to the cylindrical Hellenistic period (4th-3rd century BC) Tower of St. Peter, one of the best preserved in the Cyclades. With wonderful view to the homonymous beach, Gavrionisia and the Archipelagos, we follow for some meters a dirt road to reach one of the largest castle monasteries of the island "Agia".

The monastery church is Byzantine style with a wooden temple and painting decoration back to the post-Byzantine period. After a light picnic at the Monastery’s yard we continue our route via a narrow path and through wooded parts to arrive in Batsi and end our hiking tour.

It was great fun walking in the countryside and the information you gave us was so interesting! Definetely we will come back
