Byzantine church with old mural paintings, the Prophet Ilias summit and it’s remarkable hotels, the most traditional village of the island - Embona, and one of the most beautiful Medieval castle - Kritinia!

They have left behind a sanatorium building, a church, and a beautiful fountain that stores water brought from the mountains. You will then stop to explore the historic 15 ct. Byzantine church of St. Nicolas Foundouklis. As you admire the impressive wall paintings, you will learn the history of this important monument. Continue the tour upwards the mountain Profitis Ilias and visit two luxury hotels named Elafos and Elafina (meaning the Doe and the Deer). One of the hotels is renovated using as many original features, fixtures, and fittings as possible! After the drive to the mountain village Embona, which is one of the loveliest on the island. The area is famous for wine production and tasty village food!
