Geocache Description:




PALIÓ SINIÉS...

...is a ghost village on the east side of Mount Pantokrator (906m NN). Most of the houses are roofless ruins. The last residents moved before World War II.
In the church you can still find a rest of nice frescoes. Don't miss to visit the chapel at N 39 44.720 E 19 52.971(WP4), where the 12 apostles can be seen.
Thirsty hikers may get some fresh water at the spring at N 39 44.758 E 19 52.924 (WP5)

HOW TO GET THERE

The gravel road to Palió Siniés is not recommend for normal cars or scooters. It's better to use a jeep, enduro, mountain bike or walk. Either you start the road uphill from Vinglatsouri or you approche the village downhill from Mt. Pantokrator and pass the Ouzo 2 cache (visit link) on half way. For this second option I'll give you a discription:
  • leave the paved road to Mt. Pantokrator at WP1 (N 39 44.850 E 19 51.931)
  • follow the gravel road to WP2 (N 39 45.318 E 19 52.676). If you are a good driver and know how to handle your car very carefully you can go on this garvel road by car.
  • parking your car at WP2 is recommended. Jeep drivers can go on
  • turn to the right and follow the gravel road untill you come to the gate at N 39 44.594 E 19 52.911. From there you need to walk.

THE CACHE...

...is hidden 30m southeast of the bell tower inside a lost house in the corner between stones in the wall approx. 1m above ground. It's a small plastic box that contains a logbook, pencil and some small trading items.
