Kastelli – Iera Odos (Agios Mamas – Zoodochos Pigi Monastery)
The footpath begins at the point that is sign posted towards Kastelli on the Chora – Monastery main road. The footpath crossing the archaeological site is very well-preserved and the route is particularly interesting. Heading north, the footpath reaches the country chapel of Ayios Mamas, the site of an ancient temple where hikers can also see ruins of ancient tombs. The path continues on smoothly to Iera Odos – the ancient route linking the city to the famous temple of Apollo – with paved sections in places. The route then moves on to Mount Chalepas. There is an incredible view of the open sea from both sides of the footpath, near the isthmus where the monastery is located.
The route can also be taken backwards: Zoodochos Pigi Monastery – Ayios Mamas – Kastelli
