Tyros – Pragmatefti

Old Path Tyros - Pragmatefti

Walking route: Tyros-Pragmatefti


Leaving Hatzipanagiotis’ mansion, drive to the coastal settlement Tyrosapounakeika to find a stunning trail.

Go to the square of Sapounakeika and follow the path to the village Melana. Walk parallel to the road Astros-Leonidio, the view on your left is spectacular. The deep blue Myrtoon Sea and the green nature create captivating images. On your back, in a distance, you will be seeing the three mills of Tyros until you reach Melana. Pass the place name “Ntounias” in the region “Rock” and then the grandma’s greeting “Kaour ekanate = welcome” will get you in contact with the ancient Doric dialect, Tsakonika. You can easily cross the cobbled road that leads to Pragmatefti. There, it is worthwhile visiting Agios Georgios’ shrine and the oak forest. It should be noted that the shell of the oaks was transferred in Istanbul to be processed and give the “purple” color which they used to paint the sacred vestments. On your left, you can look out to the sea and the white houses of the village Livadi. When you reach at Agios Georgios’ chapel in “Lakes”, you are almost in Pragmatefti.

Then the path leads you effortlessly to Leonidio.
