Tourists are going to Theologos to eat grilled goat or lamb, and to buy honey. This is the biggest village on the island (220 m high). The starting point is Potos, on the main road (10 km).
The area has been inhabited since the Byzantine era. During the Turkish occupation (1455-1813) half of the village has been inhabited by Turks and half by Greeks. The two halves were united by a stone bridge (18 century), near the entrance in the village.
We have been here on 2010 too but then we went directly to the centre and we didn’t stay long. Now we took another route, over the village, lingering on the way to take photos of nature or of the old house,s covered with stone slabs.
There are some monasteries and churches in the village, a Museum of Folklore (which was closed), an old oil mill, taverns, shops selling souvenirs, olive oil and products with olive oil, honey. It is also a shop were a pair of shoes or sandals is made right under your eyes. A pair of real leather sandals is aprox. 35 euros.
