Timios Stavros
Right next to the village of Lefkogeia, 7km east of Plakias you will find this monolith. You can see Timios Stavros with its little church on top from almost every direction. The 360 degree views from the top, 433 meters above sea level, are absolutely breath taking as well as the views over the beaches of Shinaria, and Ammoudi while hiking up. You will find a small church and a bell here. Inside the church lies a book in which you can write your findings about the experience.
All the information about the hike, including ways to get to Lefkogeia, you will find using walk 6 or 7.
Sunrise or sunset are the perfect times to climb to the top, both for the views as for the temperature as there is little to no shade on the mountain.
