Little chapel on Plakias to Myrthios walk destroyed
« on: May 12, 2016, 09:45:36 AM »
Sad news.
The pretty little Chapel near the old mill on the Plakias to Myrthios walk has been destroyed by a rockfall sometime around early Spring.  So hope it is rebuilt but cannot replace what has been lost.

So sorry to learn of this.  I have visited this church every year for 17 years.  A special place.

That's such sad news - we have always called in for a moment's quiet on our walks up to Myrthios.  :(
But thank ou Vouladakis for explaining what's happened

Very sad indeed to see the picture. It has always been a favourite stop on our walks along the valley. We will treasure our photos of a little bit of history and solitude

What a pity! Always one of the places to visit when we are around.

Went past the church yesterday, and it's good to see work has started on rebuilding it.

We saw the new stone which was been left as near as possible at the end of the small dirt track, so presume they then have to manually carry them  around the rocky part by the river to actually reach the church..

Arrived back earlier this week after another wonderfull 2 weeks in Plakias. The little church is now rebuilt and decorated and waiting for the church fittings and artefacts. ( I have photos but having difficulty attaching them even after zipping.). We would like to thank Alan & Margaret for the entertaining late night chats and hope they had a good journey home.
