A large, but charming village, with buildings both new and old. A paved road leads
to the Monastery of the Pantokrator at the top of the hill. Also at the top of
the hill is the Hole of Pelaos, a cave which is said to communicate with the sea.
In the fertile Gardiki district there is another Venetian castle, a twin to Aggelokastro.
It too belonged to the Despotate of Epirus. It is octagonal, with towers at each
corner. As happened elsewhere in Greece, the remains of ancient temples have been
incorporated into the walls of the castle.
