You must see:
Spiliotissa monastery. Descending from Aristi on the way to Papigo 500 m before the Voidomatis bridge, left path for the Spiliotissa Monastery.
Kolumbithres in Papigo. On the road from the big to the small Papigo, just next to the street are the swimming pools. They are natural formations that carved the water and have become pits which in the summer are used as swimming pools. The locals close them with metal barriers to form small crystal pools where they do not hesitate to dive to cool.
The monastery of Agia Paraskevi in Monodendri. Literally on the edge of the cliff!
The bridge of Plakida or Kalogiroki in Kipi. Perhaps the most beautiful stone bridge in Greece!
