To find the Chapel please exit the hotel from the main entrance, turn left and follow the blue sign. Then, you will see the last house of our village which you do not enter but instead you turn right up. You will see another sign there. For further information please download the trail.
The Six Wells of Kostitsi Village & the Chapel of St. Minas
If you like walking, visiting the wells of our village is another option close to the hotel. The path itself is off-road and requires trainers or hiking shoes. The Wells used to be the main water supply for the whole village. Women used to carry buckets of water on their heads on a daily basis to supply the whole family. You can still find water in the wells but please do not drink it as they have not been maintained. The path will then continue and pass from the first church of the village, St. Minas which is the only church out of the 3 of our village which has not been refurbished. This is a circular route, will last approximately an hour and is around 5 km distance. For further information please download the trail.
