Hiking on an ancient path.

Anigraia Route is mentioned for the first time by Pausanias. Pausanias was a Greek traveller and geographer, who lived in the 2nd century AD. In his book «Discription of Greece», an extensive work that describes ancient Greece, he refers to the road that connected Argolida with ancient Thyrea. It is a narrow path, which in many places literally hangs over the sea. It was the only coastal road connection between these two areas until 1953, when it was replaced by the road for cars. For the most part, it is still used by local shepherds and because of that it is unique since it has been used continuously for over 3000 years.

We will start our hike by the sea near the place Palioahano. We will leave the asphalt road and start climbing the path. It is the most difficult part of the path, since in just 700 m we will climb to an altitude of 120 m, but the wisdom and knowledge of the people who carved it for the first time, helps to make the ascent very easy.

From there the trail is easy.

After 1.5 km, we will find an abandoned settlement with an impressive complex of 7 stone threshing floors. After admiring the wonderful view to the Argolic Gulf, we will follow the path that passes over a gorge with impressive caves. Then we will return following the same route
