The tiny Greek village of Gyri is located in the mountains, around 550 metres high, and dates back to at least the 15th century. This is a really traditional village, you don’t get much more old-style Greek than this.

The church in the centre of the village was rebuilt by locals after the earthquake of 1953, but retains a very traditional style. The small, narrow streets, old stone houses and crumbling walls make this a great spot for photos and a stroll. There is a charming restaurant here where you can eat real Greek food in an old stone square, and the owner will often get out his guitar for some local song.
