près de Armólia, North Aegean (Greece)
The trail begins from the main road at the point where the Armolia ceramics workshops are located. We take the country road, passing through the plain planted with olive and mastic trees. The country road goes as far as the point where the uphill climb begins. We come to a resting area with wooden benches and tables, as well as the remains of buildings dating from the time of the fortress, what they were used for remains a mystery, however. Our route continues over a footpath that slopes up sharply among pines, kerm oaks, mastic trees and strawberry trees. Continuing up the steep slope, the view widens to include the plain and the village of Armolia, Vrettos Monastery, and in the distance the village of Kalamoti, Patrika and Komi beach. The last few meters of our hike are up the man-made steps that end on the eastern side of the fortress at a point where the wall has collapsed, giving us access to the interior. To our right stands the biggest and strongest tower of the fortress.
