he route to the west from the central road is very beautiful. 

The thick pinewood, fresh and beautiful, continues on the way down to Avgonyma

It is an old, picturesque village of 11th century and is built on a rock which is surrounded by fields and an area full of pine trees. 

Avgonyma
 

The architecture is classic medieval. 

The houses are built of stone with characteristic small windows which were used as loopholes against possible attacks of pirates. 

The view of the Aegean sea and of Psara and the beautiful sunset are unique from this medieval observation post and gives to the traveler a feeling of calmness and loveliness. 

Here somebody has a chance to live in medieval houses with modern conveniences.

Elinta beach


F
or those who wish to go swimming there is the beautiful, clean bay of Elinta, which is less than 10 minutes away from the village. 

It's a natural port with fresh water springs on the beach. As they say, at the bottom of the sea there is shipwreck of a Roman ship.
