Agios Antonios



Attention! The heavy rains of the last years have damaged many gorges and many paths have been destroyed so they are no longer accessible. You could inform us for such cases, so we update the listings in our website.
Agios Antonios Gorge at Asites
(8 votes)

West of the village Ano Asites the river that initially is the gorge of Saint Haralabos and then crosses the village soon turns into a deep and spectacular gorge, the gorge of Saint Anthony. You can locate the downhill trail heading to the canyon bed next to the picturesque Byzantine church of St. Anthony, where there is a spring of drinking water.

The canyon has very dense vegetation with huge plane trees and dozens of other plant species. The trail in the canyon is a part of the European E4 foot trail. The trail reaches the exit of the gorge at Kerasia village, near Faneromeni church. Sadly, the riverbed is full of rubbish from Asites.
