Lissos Gorge
(10 votes)

Through the gorge of Lissos or Skevroto passes the trail that connects Sougia to ancient Lissos. It's a long canyon with imposing towering walls, but the path that leads to Lissos covers only a small part of the route, taking only about 1 hour.

At the exit of the path from the side of Lissos we meet ancient Lissos with the temple of Asclepius with floor mosaic, scattered ruins of the ancient city, tombs, the Roman theater and the churches of Panagia and St. Kirikos, which was built on the site of an early Christian church.

One can return to Sougia either by boat from the beautiful beach of Lissos, or by walking back the same trail.
