Agia Kori church
In the foothills of mount Olympos, just above the village of Vrondou, there is a small church in a picturesque location, called Agia Kori.There aren't any church services often, but pilgrims from greece and the neighbouring Balkan countries visit it all the time.
Agia Kory (saint daughter)!An other little church down the cliff by a little river. At the end of the road you will see the stairway to go down (90 steps). Saint daughter is not an official documented one from Orthodox Church but very strong believed from the locals, that’s why all that oblations hanging on trees all around. Little Waterfowls to the write from stairs 5min walking.Pictures at Ag. Kori- Vrondou traveloques
4-5 km. N. following the road to Katerini you will turn to the left, bypass the village Vrondou and continue for Agia Kori 4,5 km you will be at a crossroad If you turn to the write you will be at old Vrondou- a ghost Village With an interesting Church of Ag. Nickolas- And a bit up on a rock with incredible view at the tiny church, Agia Triada, with very old fresco (build 14th c.)
Ruins of the byzantine town Kitros
A short distance from Makrygialos, there are the ruins of the castle and of the bishop's residence of byzantine Kitros.
