skiathos kalnterimia

Τα λιθόστρωτα καλντερίμια της Σκιάθου όπου περπατούσε και εμπνεύστηκε πολλά από τα διηγήματά του ο Αλέξανδρος Παπαδιαμάντης είναι πλέον διατηρητέα με επίσημη απόφαση του κράτους.

Τα παραδοσιακά δρομάκια του νησιού, τα οποία φιγουράριζαν στον διεθνή Τύπο τη δεκαετία του '70 όταν φωτογραφίζονταν σε αυτά η Τζάκι Κένεντι με τον Αριστοτέλη Ωνάση και άλλες προσωπικότητες του διεθνούς τζετ σετ, ξεκίνησαν να κατασκευάζονται τον 19ο αιώνα. Σήμερα, τουλάχιστον 150 χρόνια μετά την πρώτη απόφαση των Αρχών του νησιού για την κατασκευή τους, η Διεύθυνση Αρχιτεκτονικής του υπουργείου Περιβάλλοντος αποφαίνεται ότι πρόκειται για λιθόστρωτα καλντερίμια μοναδικά στην Ελλάδα σε χαρακτηριστική διάταξη 'ψαροκόκαλου' με ιδιότυπη πεζοδρόμηση αριστερά-δεξιά.

hania pelio

Below we present you in details the route from Hania to Trikeri. As you know the roads in east Pelion are narrow and there's no enough space to park your car.
Hania is the most high settlement in Pelion and it's near the Ski Resort of Pelion Agriolefkes. Starting from Hania you turn right at the end of the settlement when you see a green sign that says ''farmakeio'' (=drugstore). You will find yourself in Drakeia at 15 minutes drive. Drakeia is a small village at 500meters altitude. We chose to make a stop at the village and eat at the traditional tavern that you fwill find at the main square.

fakistra tsagarada

Fakistra, a beach that has been awarded from many travel websites and has entered into several lists of the best beaches in Greece. It is close to Tsagarada, just a few minutes drive. We have received a few questions about how to get to Fakistra and what's the difficulty of the path. So we are ready to answer to your questions with useful information and many pictures.

First, you will have to turn left just after entering Tsagarada, the sign writes "Mylopotamos". Follow the road and the signs to "Fakistra" . The road has 2-3 tight turns but you will soon reach the point where the road ends and there is space to park your car. There you will find a gazebo and a sign that directs you to the path of writing that is 20 minutes walk. We have done much less time!

So, we visited and photographed the route to know what awaits you! The slope at the beginning of the route is actually a bit steep for the first few minutes to go down but the rest of the path is fully compatible with many shady places where after a beautiful trail drives you to the beach.
