Once we arrive at the traditional village of Stemnitsa, we will take our time to feel the energy of the place by enjoying a coffee in a traditional village cafe.
The route starts through the village of Stemnitsa and following the special markings of Menalon Trails we will enter the dirt road on the slope below the Stemnitsa - Dimitsana road network. The special signs guide us to the first path to the Prodromos monastery. At some point, we meet the asphalt and for a very short time we will follow it, accompanied by the view of the gorge before following the cobblestone road towards the Prodromos monastery. We will pass under the rock on which the monastery was built, which can be visited daily with a drinking fountain in its surroundings, and we will proceed along the path that crosses the gorge. This is also the path (stone-built for the most part) that will lead us to Dimitsana.
The enchanting path will take us over the river through the Filosofou bridge to direct us uphill towards the Old Philosophou Monastery and also the New Philosofou Monastery where we will take our time for a few breaths before starting again.
We will follow the old path for the animals, on the west bank of the gorge and we will reach the Monopori Bridge which will change our course directing us to the other bank of the gorge to pass uphill near Paleochori and move towards the Hydrokinesis Museum. The path leads us around the perimeter of the museum to the large Kafalari that moves the entire array of water mills, powder mills and water mills that built the fame and wealth of Dimitsana. From here we will follow the regularly marked cobblestone road that will take us to the heart of the village of Dimitsana at its most commercial point.
There we will have time to enjoy a meal in a traditional tavern and give our mind the necessary time to capture in its memory all the images that this route offered us!
