Agios Mathaios
Click to Enlarge,Agios  Mathaios

A picturesque big village with old and new buildings. A tiled street leads to the Monastery of Pantokrator, on top of the hill and   to the "Cave of the Sea", a cave which the locals say that it communicates with the sea.

The village was built in the late 16th century, after the attack of Barbarossa , who destroyed the original village" Zygonos ", which was at the wider region of the fertile field near the castle   of Gardiki .  

The castle belongs to the period of the Despotate of Epirus (early 13th century) and its shape is octagonal , with towers in every corner. If you see the fortifications of the castle, you will discover that they include part ans material   of ancient temples.

The surnames of the inhabitants witness that they are descendants of the defenders of this castle
