Leonidio Things to Do

  • Kastanitsa

    by cons15479 Written Jul 17, 2003

    The mountainious interior of Kynouria is a place with deep gorges and mild slopes covered with pine and chesnut forests . In that area are located several beautiful villages . My favourite is Kastanitsa . It is hard to access but it surely worths the try . It is built on 950m above sea level in the middle of a thick chesnut forest but its architecture is greatly influenced by tha of the Aegean islands . Perfectly beautiful .

Leonidio Off The Beaten Path

  • Mount Parnonas

    A last view of the Parnonas mountainrange . It is called as the "female" mountain because its greatest part is hilly rather than steep, though it reaches the altittude of 2000 m's and is covered by endless forests .

    If you take the road from Leonidion to Kosmas you will drive through a steep and fascinating gorge . The monastery of Elona ( Panagia Elona ) is impressively built inside the red rock .
