  • An old town slowly reawakened by today's mobility and is worth a detour if you are nearby.

  • Had advised us this former village characterized "typical", it is true that he remained in his juice but not nice to visit with young children. It takes 20 minutes to climb in a car with a succession of turn to come in this hamlet where await a few tavernas and a business that sells products of the region.

  • Deserted village, which has become a tourist attraction. Part of the abandoned houses and you can visit, if not afraid provisshih wooden beams. The village has a small hotel and a couple of tavernas. The Church closed, but Mikhail open ... Beautiful road

  • The old village of Perithia is a deserted beautiful place with a unique atmosphere. Few tavernas are open for food and drinks
  • The village is placed in the centre of the island, surrounded by hills and olives. Absolutely worth visiting and spending there 2-3 hours to enjoy old buildings. When you wander inside try to imagine how life here may have looked like, why settlers decided to start a village there... After sightseeing you may spend nice time on ice frappe in local canteen. Oh - don't go o the spring next to the village. Not worth it...
  • Well conserved old village. You need around an hour to walk through it.
  • It seems like the time has stopped there. Absolutely peacefull place.
  • Really beautiful place to visit.
