logo Folegandros


Despite its small size, Folegandros has a unique network of reails that counts more than twice as many kilometers as its roads. They were made to facilitate the farmers’ works, thus many parts of them are cobblestone. Their vast majority have no shade, so a hat and a flask of water are necessary if you want to wander there in the summer months.
After the church of Agios Andreas in the central road of Ano Meria on the right there is a sign of the pedestrian street leading to Agios Georgios. First it was a cement road but then it became a dirt road with cobblestone parts. After you walk for 10min through the fields with the wild aromatic herbs, the beehives and the panoramic view, you will reach the chapel of Ai Sostis.
The dusk is probably the best time to make this route, because the colors give another dimension to the landscape and because the lively port of Aggali is less crowded. The path starts about 1km far from Chora to the direction of Ano Meria, from the small church of Stavros, following the sign to Christos.


The path does not start from the beach Livadi but from the homonymous settlement and in specific, from its very last house with the sheepfold. Take the direction to the left, pass the old corrals and after 5min continue southeast. After 15min the beach of Katergo will stretch in front of you and you need to walk carefully on the shaky ground to get there. Duration without stops: 35΄
