This is a thrilling route, which offers an enriching overview of southern Kythera. The route ascends from the picturesque bay of Kapsali, passing through the agricultural landscapes of Fyroi area, amidst olive groves, scattered “katounes” (cottages) and the little old monastery of Agios Nikolaos, while enjoying an astonishing view of Chora along the way. An offshoot of the trail leads to the monastery of Agioi Akindynoi. The view from there is literally panoramic. After the picturesque monastery of Agios Ioannis at Agriolies, the trail is heading again towards the South, unfolding typical Mediterranean landscapes, with junipers, heather shrublands and old limekilns. After the small, rural settlement of Kseroniamata, the steep narrow path crosses the ravine from high above, where, after a few meters, one can see the majestic cave of Agia Sofia. Behind the beautiful chapel, visitors can take a short circular walk in the cave. There, the oldest archaeological findings of Kythera were discovered, which attest that the island has been inhabited since 4,000 B.C. After the cool break in the cave, the route ascends to the settlement of Spilies. After weaving between the junipers, the bay of Kapsali reveals from above. There, hanging from the cliff is the old handcrafted stone trail, also known as “Atrapos tis Kapenas”, which ends at Piso Gyalos of Kapsali and closes the loop.
