Our hike starts from the Monastery of Golas dated back in 1632AD, at 850m altittude.
The unique feature of the monastery is its frescoes, depicting ancient greek philosophers.
As we marvel at Taygetos highest peaks, we ”jump”into the forest of firs and chestnuts, in the canyon of “Larnakia”.
Small waterfalls, water pools and medieval stoned bridges compose a fairytale scenery.
We reach our destination, the picturesque settlement of Koumousta at 700m altittude.
The village is abandoned but well preserved, traditional buildings with stone roads,
and a charming square with marble fountains.
We can enjoy our traditional snack and fresh spring water before we take the route back to the starting point.
