The countryside around the town of Leonidion is dotted with small churches and monasteries which are such a distinctive part of the landscape. One such church is the Church of the Prophet Elias. We set off from the main bridge on the road that encircles Leonidion.
We head into Kilaso, the neighborhood in the south side of Leonidion. After climbing up the narrow streets for about 15 minutes, we leave the last of the houses behind, and take a path lined with pine trees, which leads us to the Church of the Prophet Elias.
Along the way, we admire flowers in bloom and feel the energy and beauty of nature. Arriving at our destination, Leonidion unfolds at our feet and the Mirtoon Pelagos lines the horizon.
On our way back to town, we visit the nearby church of the Panagia Hatzialous and complete our tour back at the starting point.
