The unspoiled area of Andros

Hiking Tour to Kapparia Village

Discover the authentic part of Andros

We start our hike by crossing the “kampos” (lowland), the area with the horticulture, livestock, and stables, along the river. Our destination is the settlement of Kapparia, located at the beginning of the fertile valley of Korthi, on a slope of Mount “Gerakonas”, at an altitude of 240m from where the Kapparianos River starts. It is made up of four individual smaller settlements from south to north: Pera Chorio, Morakaioi, Kapparia (‘Megalo Chorio’) and Tzeo.
A particular characteristic of Kapparia is the number of dovecotes, which date back to after the 13th century. Their construction is attributed to the Venetians and to the Latin lords of the area in general, who built them according to the square type common in their homeland.
The area is characterised by terraces on the ground, with dry-stone walls that hold the soil. The houses date back to the Middle Ages, and slate is used as a building material in all of them. After stopping for a coffee at the village café, we will return again to Ormos Korthi.
