W4: The Holy Monastery of Saint Paraskevi in Palaiochori and the Bridge of Papastathi

Then we return to the Petrovouni settlement and head toward the Palaiochori Syrrako settlement. After a 60 minutes or so walk through the nature of Tzoumerka, we encounter once again Saint Paraskevi Monastery which was founded in the 18th century. We encounter two stone fountains in the main square and in the settlement of Trikka respectively as well as the watermill of Koutroumpa. Today the settlement’s population stands at about 66. Until the recent past its residents lived mostly from agriculture and domesticated livestock.

The Arachthos River was always part of their everyday life and many of the residents owned properties that bordered the river. The river followed a one way direction because of its impulsive and risky nature usually caused by heavy rain. The adventurous visitor could follow the river and reach the Bridge of Papastathi, which is a lofty bridge with four curved arches that connects the banks of Arachthos located beneath the settlement between Anatoliki and Krapsi. However, it is preferable to get to the bridge by taking the road from Palaiochori toward Anatoliki-Krapsi and from there descend onto the river.
