Lefkes - Pigados - Ancient Quarry - Loggovardas Monastery - Taxiarchi Monastery

Setting off from Lefkes, the first section of the hike is uphill as far as the well at Pigados (Greek for well). There are traditional houses along the route.

After Pigados, the dirt road leads downhill towards the Vounia region, with vineyards and wheat crops.

The trail passes near the Monastery of Agios Minas and the Ancient Quarries, continues across the Marathi plateau and climbs up to a small forest with indigenous vegetation (shrubs) and leads to Loggovardas Monastery, which is still inhabited by monks and only men are permitted to enter. The monastery houses beautiful Orthodox frescoes, valuable icons and rare books. The path continues on to Taxiarchi Monastery.
