“A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE”
The “village of miners” is a picturesque hamlet in the “embrace” of might mountain volumes and ready to reveal to you the rare beauty of an area which, well “hidden” below beech and oak trees, lives “noiselessly”… Megali Panagia is also known by its traditional name, Revenikia, and is only ten minutes away from Arnea. It will show you the way to tranquility and deep relaxation. Charming narrow alleyways, traditional coffee shops, a central Square vibrant with life in the evening and at night, bringing to mind times long past, are just some of the things that you will remember for a long time. Traditional, small commercial shops stand “untouched by time” and ready to take you on a trip down memory lane. In Megali Panagia you will still find professionals such as horseshoe makers, tinkers, weavers, while the miners of the area are ready to describe in detail their own professional experiences! Should you visit Megali Panagia on the 15th of August, don’t forget to pay your respects at the chapel of Our Lady (Panagia) which is less than 3 km. away from the settlement. Devotees from all around Greece flock here and seek Her Grace on the festive Evening Prayer on August 14. If you are a religious traveler then in Megali Panagia you shall combine a beautiful vacation with getaways to the mountain while coming closer to Greek Orthodox Tradition.
