Ancient Vasilikos Extended

The route starts at the Governor's Beach heading west to Monagroulli. A three kilometre uphill ride will lead to the beautiful village of Asgata. Pass through the narrow streets of the village and go downward to Kalavasos. The paved traditional streets, the grand church of the Virgin Mary and the Mosque are some of the many things to admire in Kalavasos. Then, head south and discover the village of Tochni where the ancient church of the village is bound to impress. The village of Choirokoitia is next, where the Neolithic Settlement of Choirokoitia is located, which has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998. Skarinou and Agios Theodoros are the villages to follow before reaching Zygi and the Zygi Marina. Continue towards Vasiliko to finish the circular route at Governor’s Beach.
