Maries

Location on the map

At the western side of the island, between the converging evergreen mountain sides there is a village called Maries, established since the Byzantine era, but keeping its traditional appearance. In older times the village was on a small hill, opposite the monastery of “Panagouda”, but it was transferred to its new position, so that it could not be discovered by the pirates.The village was built on an altitude of 200 meters.
