***English below***

Ένα μονοπάτι με δύο τμήματα: το πρώτο οδηγεί μέσα από το δάσος, κατά μήκος μιας κορυφογραμμής που υψώνεται πάνω από την Κούλα. Περνάει ανάμεσα από ερείπια και οχυρωματικά έργα, όπου και τα τελευταία καταφύγια του Δημοκρατικού Στρατού στον Εμφύλιο. Μετά τα ειρίπια της Αγίας Βαρβάρας μπορούμε να επιστρέψουμε στο σημείο έναρξης, ή να συνεχίσουμε ψηλότερα, στην κορυφή του Ντέβας, με εξαιρετική θέα προς όλες τις κατευθύνσεις.


ENGLISH
Starting point: The church of Agios Georgios at the highestpoint on the Koula to Psarades road

Trail in a nutshell: A trail of two parts. The first leg takes you through the trees along a ridge-back rising high above Koula. It passes some ruins and fortifications; the last strongholds of the leftist forces in the Greek Civil War. Beyond the ruins of Agia Varvara you may turn back to your starting point or climb higher to the top of Mt Devas, which has grandstand views all round.

Why is it so special?

A grove of ancient junipers around the church of Agios Georgios.
Forest cover of a kind very rare in Greece, with a rich understory and ground cover.
Flora. This is truly a trail for plant-lovers armed with a good field guide and plenty of time, particularly if walked in May or early June.
Defensive positions dating from the Greek Civil War.
A view over the pelican colonies in Vromolimni (Viro) and adjacent reedbeds of Lake Lesser Prespa.
An interesting butterfly, the Clouded Apollo Parnassius mnemosyne and ‘hill-topping’ by blue butterflies.
