Chestnut Woods (Kastanothassos or Longos)
To avoid walking up a steep hill it is recommended to begin the walk from the Church of Purification and move downhill. Otherwise, start from the opposite side of the path from Aghia Mavra chapel, see the map below reference.
Walk along the Georgitsi-Kalamata provincial road until the Aghia Mavra chapel and The Cold Fountain.
In 200 metres follow the signs towards the path. One can marvel the views of the Evrotas Valley, Mount Parnonas and the local flora; chestnut trees, pine trees and plane trees.
Walking distance: 3.2 km
Time required: 50 mins
