Jump on them and continue to Korasani church(open and is water also with nice rest area under shadow!).Then by the road for 1km you met something like sheepfold, there is a path for 500m and then right to monastery of timios stauros(Kardamoutsa)..Very nice old path from kardamoutsa(timios stayros) to majestically unigue Αreti monastery.Areti is the old headquarters (metropolis) of local bishop,now is at Neapolis.Light a vigil light ,have rest in silence and continue below to oak forest.
