It is a village on a slope of a mountain situated only 4 km away from
in a thick forest of plane
and pine trees. Creeks pouring down in a waterfall at the entrance of the village
complete the scenery. The village was given its name due to the numerous nests
of falcons (the Greek word for falcon is "geraki") in the area. The people are
mainly engaged in the exploitation of forestal resources.
