Paralion Astros

  • Bronze Age Pyramid

    Paralion Astros Off The Beaten Path

    North of Astros, on the Argos road is a left turn to the Bronze age pyramid at Elliniko. This was apparently built as a stockade on the ancient road to Arcadia. The Kenkreai pyramid stands to nearly full height on it's good side. The stones used to build it are enormous.

  • VIEWS FROM CASTLE

    Paralion Astros Things to Do

    Worth climbing to from the older part of the town, known as Nissi. It's a star shaped hill from which the castle gets it's name. Long, long ago, this hill was an island. Lovely old houses with colourful gardens lead you up some steps to the castle, away from a square with a large, new looking church.The castle was built during the Greek War of...

  • The best food by far!

    Paralion Astros Restaurants

    Yianni will make you very welcome at Remezzo, which overlooks the harbour. The food is always beautifully prepared and presented, and delicious. He has a good menu and there are usually some 'specials'. I am a vegetarian, and always found tasty food here (quite difficult in Paralio Astros!). Try the soups, and the pasta dishes will have you...

  • monument of Langadian builder

    Lagadia Things to Do

    Before entering into the village (we were coming from Tripoli) we saw a monument on the right. It’s a monument dedicated to the local builders, no surprise of course as the village of Langadia is known for its builders and the general architecture of the village itself. After the Greek War of Independence (1821) most of the locals were builders....

  • Taksiarches church

    Lagadia Things to Do

    Taksiarches church is the main church of Lagadia. You cant miss it as it’s located right on the main road as you drive west you will see it on your right hand. It was built in 1808 along with Timios Prodomos church, both churches were built in 40 days as this was the time frame that the Ottoman Turks gave to Ioannis Deligiannis so the greeks could...

  • what to shop in Vytina

    Vitina Shopping

    We were surprised to see so many stores with souvenirs in Vytina, most of them have local products but also some with handcrafts made of wood. As we arrived early in the morning only a few of them were open yet (obviously the one that were selling newspapers and tabaco was open) but anyway we weren’t in mood for shopping as we were trying to avoid...

  • main square of Vytina

    Vitina Things to Do

    The rain came on at its heaviest just when we decided to leave the café but walking around in these conditions wasn’t really an option and turned back inside for a while watching some locals trying to hide too. After a while the sky was still grey black but the light rain made things easier for us so we could (at least) check the main square for a...

    Vitina Things to Do

    Right on the main square of Vytina you can visit a small museum. Folklore Museum is housed on a stone building that must be restored recently, it used to be the kindergarten of the village some years before. There are about 650 exhibits on display. There are numerous old objects, most of them items people used the previous decades in daily life...
