On the Road to Perachora
SCHINOS (ancient oenoe)
On the road to Strava, after about 6 km., we come to a little roadside shrine. An uphill path from there leads to a little chapel dedicated to the Seven Maccabees, a quaint structure three-quartets of which is built into a cave. In its courtyard is a tall oak tree, which is said to be as old as the church itself. This idyllic spot is believed once to have been the hermitage of a monk called Maccabaeus.
