  • Located on a mountain from where you can see a fantastic scenery and also the island of Kefalonia! hard to get there so I recommend avoiding going into moped! but worth it definitely not just the landscape but also for the Church well kept and evocative with a cottage near where there is a table and a diary where you can leave a signature! now we too are in the history of Zakynthos! you go!

  • A really wonderful place to visit!You need a car and the road is a rather tough earth road with many holes but once on the top it really is worthwhile. The small church and its annexes are beautiful. ...  more »

  • Beautiful ruins of a monastery, the church is still there. You can climb to the top of the mountain just behind the monastery to have a great view of the island.
  • 6 km to the top from Kalamaki - excellent trail running experience and an awesome view of both shores.
  • Descendant of the sun. Hot serie in Korea. I love Song Joong Ki.
  • This is one of the "must visit" places on Zakynthos. It took us a lot of effort to get there but it really is worth every step of climbing. Near the mountain top is located a small place run by aged and very kind Greek couple that serve you a glass of water right after they see your bone-tired body in front of the gate to Panagia Skopiotissa. Remember to buy something cold to dring for that life saving glass of water!
  • The highest point of the island. Church Of The Mother Of God Strazhnicy. It is difficult to walk under scorching sun. Stunning views of the island. Even in the way a lot of beauty. One person works in a coffee shop (200 meters in front of the Church) and she opens the Church. Very friendly
