Nymphes
Click to Enlarge,Nymphes

A big village with a lot of water , green and legends , built on a height of 200 meters. According to a legend, in old times, the Nymphs used to bathe in the village's waterfalls . A walk to the wells and the waterfalls is enough to make you understand why this legend exists ! It is almost certain that you will come across a nymph, too and, if you are lucky, you will see her bathe in the water, especially in spring.

After your walk to the myths , it is a good idea to visit the premises of the Agriculture Co-operative, which elaborates kum-kuat , and produces liquor and sweets. You will be offered some for free and you will have the chance to try the different liquor qualities (and, of course, buy some, if you like).

A little outside the village, you can visit Askitario, a small but historic monastery . According to tradition, here lived in the 5th century the monk Artemios Paissios from Epirus , who is said to have worked many wonders . Besides, after watching the Nymphs, it is a good idea to play a little, too.
