Chora – Evaggelistria Monastery – Prophet Elias – Castle - Return
The time includes short stops for photography, small lunch and the necessary sightseeing.
Facing the town from the harbour you go right until you get to the ring road, then turn left. Circle the ring road to the first crossroads signposted Evaggelistria Monastery and Kastro (Castle). Turn right on this road (later track). Just before Evaggelistria Monastery you must leave the Kastro road by forking right. There still seems to exist a path from Evaggelistria Monastery in the direction of Kastro (Castle) but I am not sure if you can get through all the way anymore. There are no signs from the other side. To pick up the track again walk up the stairs just before the monastery, and pick up the road by the small chapel. The road winds up and down, left and right until it finally passes the church of Prophet Elias. Not long after that several crossroads may take you to more monasteries, or by crossing the saddle, down towards Kastro (Castle). All important crossroads are marked, otherwise just follow the main track.
Back towards town, retracing your steps from Kastro (Castle) , not long after Prophet Elias again, fork right on a concrete road with street lights that forks steeply and diagonally down towards Chora. It is signposted to the Panorama tavern. This road meets the ring road at the second of the crossroad mentioned above. There is also an alternative marked footpath for the last stretch, forking off left. This was blocked by a ton of thorny branches, probably to keep animals in, but it also kept me out. If you want to crush through this mess, be my guest.
