Stretching along the southern coastline is a magnificent settlement &
an interminable beach. The dark sea and the surrounding green make it
one of the most beautiful on the island.
The rocky bulk of Mesa Vouno, the remainder of ancient Aigiis, rises east
of the village. One of the island's largest churches, if not the largest,
"Timios Stavros" or "Holy Cross" is located close
by in Perissa. Not far from that (S. East) is the monastery of Perissa.
It is a 19th century building & has a five - domed church.
