Agia Paraskevi – Theotokos
The route Agia Paraskevi – Theotokos starts 34 km outside of Kalamata, on the highest point of the asphalt road to the Tourist Kiosk of Taygetos. There you will find the church of Agia Paraskevi. For hiking from Agia Paraskevi to Theotokos, follow the smooth ridge of the mountain and find the beginning of the trail which is not steep and leads us on a small plateau after one hour. From this point, a side road of the pathway Agia Paraskevi – Theotokos leads us after 20 minutes in the chapel of Agios Ioannis from which we have great view over the surrounding area.
We return to the main path Agia Paraskevi – Theotokos and after 15 minutes we get close to the chapel of Agios Georgios. The scenery is gorgeous. Next to the church there is an oven for food preparation, if we want something more than just a sandwich for the route! We ascend to the limits of the route Agia Paraskevi – Theotokos and soon we are at the top of the mountain at an altitude of 1,307 meters. From the chapel of Agios Georgios we descend the path and after walking two hours we reach on the end of the route of Agia Paraskevi- Theotokos, a picturesque location with sources and a restaurant on the national road Kalamata- Sparti.
