Agios Antonios Gorge
(2 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 St. 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.
