The historic village of Fikardou







Matthew from Wellington

"This village has been declared an ancient monument to preserve the remarkable woodwork and folk architecture of the 16th and 18th century houses.

Two of the houses, the House of Katsinioros and Achilleas Demetri, which were built in the 16th century, have been restored and received the Europa Nostra Award in 1987". (copied and pasted from a travel website because I'm out the door...)
Oh and this is the location where they shoot a popular Greek soap. The locals are not happy. Only in summer does this village have more that 2 or 3 small families living here... they come in summer to escape the heat of the coast and plain interiors.
