Ra Route

Camp – Agios Antonios – Panagia Mavridiani – Meronas – Camp

Discovering the all-green nature southeast of Meronas

Ra Route will take you through the most lovely countryside around Meronas. Even better, if it is combined with route Rb, it features history, religion and many nature stops along the way. Byzantine chapels with magnificent frescoes, remnants of old stone watermills, lush vegetation and a variety of crops (olive trees, walnut trees, cherry trees,…) are the main features that make up the interest of this route.
Note to bikers! Pathways unsuitable for bikes are avoided by choosing dirt road sections.
