A hike that our Club organises for the first time.

From the beautiful village of Ano Varsamonero, at 380m a.s.l., we hike for one km to the nearby village of Monipari, at 394m. Then, along a path and a dirt road for 3 km to the castle of Bonriparo, of the early 13th century.

We continue our hike for 3 km to the old church of Agia Paraskevi and we end in the village of Kastellos, at 420m. The total length of the hike is about 10km.
