Setting out from the port and before we reach Plaka, the first villages we find are Triovasalos and Pera Triovasalos.
These two almost continuing villages have been created on two neighboring hills, they are densely populated and amphitheatrically built, whereas they have a considerable commercial activity. In Triovasalos, ‘’Karavodromos’’ constitutes the island’s focal point, where banks, public services, cafeterias and commercial shops are located. Lastly, in Triovasalos and in Pera Triovasalos, you can visit the two significant churches of these villages: the church of Saint Spryindon and the church ofSaint George respectively.
Plakes, the small village with the white houses and alleys, is situated between Plaka and Triovasalos. It was built at the foot of the Castle and is name originated from the fact that the region was level (“Plakes” means straightening). Should you go to Plakes, you can visit the island’s church dedicated to Saint Haralabos, where you will see the icon of Panaghia Akradiotissa, one of the island’s oldest icons. Finally, from Plakes you can go easily and quickly to the amazing beach of Plathiena.
