Tsikalario - Apano (“Upper”) Castle - Ano Potamia
The hike starts from the village of Tsikalario, located in the centre of the island. There, you will find and follow a trail firstly towards the north and after 2km in a westward direction. You will pass outside an ancient cemetery and you will follow a steep way up to the Apano Kastro (means “Upper Castle”). It stands imposingly over the hill, at an altitude of 420m, and it has a beautiful view to the valley.
The scenery is wild but also enchanting since the rocks make weird and unusual combinations. After relaxing for a while into the castle, move towards the west and after passing the chapel of Agios Andreas, a small path starts leading to the village of Ano Potamia.
