The old national highway that linked Argos
with the city of Tripoli is
one of the most well known roads in Greece.
It used to be a road of communication with central Peloponnese
known then as Kolosourtis. From Kolosourtis (the road) visitors have the opportunity
to admire the wonderful view of the Argolic
gulf and Nauplia.
Kolosourtis used to be the largest road guillotine. It used to be
narrow and slippery, with curves of 180 degrees next to a precipice. Hundreds
of accidents revealed its dangerousness.
However, today things are different. The new national highway that
links Corinth with Tripoli
has made Kolosourtis less busy. Although traffic is not frequent, the road has
been reconstructed. It is now wider with less curves and non-slippery surface.
Before reaching Achladokampos and on the right side of the road, there
is a 4km road that leads to Nera. There are many springs and plane trees in Nera,
as well as an old Byzantine chapel rebuilt by the emigrants. This is where the
great feast of Achladokampos takes place.
