Avlona’s miniature world

Avlona looks like the centre of a world that is fading away, a world that every visitor would want to be privy to in order to experience astounding Karpathos to the fullest. The detour leading to Avlona still takes you on a journey through time. You can see the plateau from up high fragmented into square shapes and clear circles. Stables (buildings for people, goods and animals), fields and threshing floors are separated by dry-stone walls.

The residents of Olympos own fields and gardens in Avlona. The residents of ancient Vroukounta also did the exact same thing. The traditional work outfits are not a folklore element and a treat, even if it is only a tomato, is regarded as a divine present. Avlona is no ordinary place. It is the place where probably the most beautiful and important hiking trails of the Dodecanese start. One trail leads to Vroukounta and the other to Tristomo and the Saria canal.
