Andros The Villages of Korthi

After Aidonia, an uphill asphalt road passes through Ano Korthi, part of which can be seen from the road, though most of its houses are hidden amidst the lush vegetation of the landscape (in fact, you can actually get to know the village, only if you walk around it). Ano Korthi used to be the capital of the region in the past. You will find a very beautiful old square in the village with houses and shops all around it. The shops, for example a traditional café that used to liven up the village and was one of the best on the island, are no longer in operation. A bit further down the road, you will see the church of Agios Nikolaos (12th century) that has two altars and a second church (the church of Agios Charalambos) inside it. You will also come across the Byzantine church of Agios Ioannis Theologos that has a tree growing on its roof and an old wall fountain under it.
