Parori – Church of Transfiguration of the Saviour – Lagadiotissa – Parori.
Our hike will start from the village of Parori (it is 6 km from Sparta). After about 40 minutes of a mild ascent and after we have crossed the gorge of Parori and a formation in the rock that resembles a tunnel open on one side, we will reach the church of the Transfiguration of the Saviour, where we will stop to cool off and rest. Then, we will start the descent to the impressive cave church of Panagia Lagadiotissa, with 15th century frescoes. We will return to the village of Parori with its abundant waters and the picturesque taverns below the plane trees (stop in the village: optional).
The route is recommended for beginners.
