Three kilometers from the Monastery of Stavros, in a narrow crevasse,
lays the picturesque village of Mavratzaioi.
In the small village square, under a century old tree, there are traditional
cafes, while all over the village we find unique stone built houses with well
kept gardens, stone built fountains, old public washrooms, narrow paved streets.
Clay pottery workshops operate in the village since its early years. Most of its
inhabitants are farmers.
The past few years the village has become a popular starting point
for climbers and ramblers who wish to climb or walk the steep slopes and crevasses
of mount Ampelos.
The most important sites of Mavratzaioi are:
The stone built Church of Saint George built in 1904.
The Church of the Holly Cross and the chapel of Saint Spiridonas.
The chapel of Saint Dimitrios.
The stalactites' cave of Tripiovrahos and the cave of Kaplanotripa.
Local festivals take place on Saint George's day and others are organized
by the Association of Saint Panteleimonas in Athens.
