Kourtaliotiko Gorge

The gorge begins in the village of Koxare and follows the Kourtaliotiko River, as does the road. About half-way through the gorge there are parking places and steps leading down to the river-bed and the church of Agios Nikolaos. At the end of the gorge is an area that resembles a tropical lagoon, Palm Beach.
The gorge is narrow and ruggedly beautiful; the river that flows through it forms five big pools and then a waterfall. Throughout the gorge a wide variety of wildlife is visible.
