Geocache Description:

This is a traditional park and grab cache.

It is one of a series we are putting together that will form a driving experience around Apokoronas and focus mainly on some of the traditional villages in the area.




This 2000 year old Greco-Roman bridge, east of the village of Vrysses, spans the Vrisakos River. It is a dry stone structure covered in cobbles and stands 6.4 metres above the river. Not far away are the remains of Roman buildings.

Next to the bridge is the church of St George. Local stories have it that during the Turkish occupation this building was taken over by a Turk who demanded a toll for each traveller to pass by, until one night several men came down from the near by village of Kalamitsi and murdered him. One of the men was said to have tried to remove the gold rings from the body, but not being able to, he cut off the fingers and put them in his belt, where he forgot about them until the smell reminded him and everyone else!
