Pavliani forest and recreation park, are located between Ano and Kato Pavliani. Start at the Water Power Museum, a group of stone buildings that house the Water Saw, Watermill, Fulling Mill and Whirlpool Tub, which give a fascinating insight into how textiles were woven, treated and washed in the not too distant past.
Continue along the zigzag path that follows the course of the Asopos river, under the thick shade of plane, maple, walnut and chestnut trees. The damp, sweet-smelling vegetation, towering firs, rare formations of trees and the enchanting sound of the Asopos’ source sweep visitors away into another world. After walking for 20 minutes, there is a signpost revealing the location of the Kamara cave. At the next turn in the path lies the heart of the imposing fir forest, where the recreation park has been created with activities for all ages.
There you will find hammocks, a river volley court with tiered wooden seats, picnic benches and a barbecue area. The more adventurous might want to cross the river using an odd-looking seat-and-rope contraption similar to a suspension traverse a thrilling experience. The park is open to the public all year round. There is no admission fee.
