An easy downhill route with lush greenery, visiting four Catholic villages of the mainland.
This hiking tour starts at Tarampados village, known for the "Dovecotes Valley", a valley where both the most elaborate and in best condition dovecotes of our island are found. You cross the village, admiring the dovecotes from afar. Then you continue your route to Kampos village. A beautiful village, where the Honey Festival takes place in the summer. You will have the option to visit the "Kostas Tsoklis" museum of modern art, during the summer months.
After crossing one of the most beautiful cobbled alleys of the island which passes through a lush valley, you descend to the village of Loutra. There, you have the opportunity to visit the Ursulines Monastery, which used to host a girls' boarding school, renowned across Europe. It now functions as a museum that houses an interesting folklife exhibition and can be visited only in the summer.
You continue downhill, parallel to a lush dell, crossing the ruins of the medieval village Lazaros, until you reach Perastra village. Perastra is a small village, with just a few locals, full of lush vegetation, built along the river that flows through it.
Our tour ends at Komi village, one of the largest on the island, located near the largest agricultural area called Livadi, where the famous Tinian artichoke is grown. Most of the villagers work as farmers and every year in spring, the Artichoke Festival is held in Komi.
