Meanwhile there is a new road to the village of Kalikratis. The village, located in the mountain above Frangokastello, has a nice gorge from the coast up to here.
Most of the locals were living here only in summer, because it was difficult to get fodder for the animals in winter. The habitants went down to their villages close the coastline. Now with heating systems and electricity some people are living here in winter too.

The village was nearly destroyed by the German army during the WW-II.

The area is very nice for walks. Because of the location there was less tourism until now. Some taverns are offering good meals for good prices.
