Hike 11
From the Venetian Bridge of Vlychos via the Chapel of Saint Irini to the Chapel of Saint Mamas
Total time: 90 minutes

This hike takes you inland through a beautiful pastoral landscape on a well-worn trail. From the red Chapel of Saint Irene you can make out traces of former settlement and cultivation of the slopes. This area is famous for the especially good quality of its well water and the fragrant sage that grows there. The courtyard of the church is a good place for observation and pondering. You can see the houses of Palamidas and the northern coast of Hydra. The trail up to the church is partially steep and full of rubble, so a walking stick is advisable.
