PLACE : PALEOPOLIS



PALEOPOLIS
Paleopoli is located at the western coast in the Batsi area and it is the ancient city of Andros island, which flourished from classical age till roman times. You can reach it taking the central road to Stavropeda at Paleopoli settlement. Today it is a picturesque green village at the slope of mountain Petalo, on which there are the probably unique waterfalls in Cyclades islands. There is a taverna, coffee shops and a small museum with findings from the excavations, which is open every Wednesday. The ancient city was much lower, by the port, whose half sank pier is seen from the village. The road reaches the lowest point of the village and from there a path leads to the sea. The courageous can park by the asphalt road and take the steps leading down to the village, wander around and continue the descent. A well maintained path leads to the sea, in a journey through time. A magical walk by the picturesque spring, where the stone benches are made of ancient stones, the cows tied on ancient capitals and some stables supported on ancient pillars (pessos). Take a look at the old-Christian churches, the ancient wall and swim at the old port. Relax and take a rest, there are only 1039 steps on your way back. You can also swim in its beach with pebbles.
