The good: The view from the parking lot down the valley is magnificent! Extremely and breathtakingly beautiful! To the opposite side the white windmills are so very pretty. They are actually operating, clanging the attached bells and pumping water. You can go inside and see...More

It's so sad to have such amazing view destroyed by having a horrible person manage the shop/coffee place/museum/tourist trap that is nearby. Come only for the hilarious reviews.

A nice stop over on the way to see Zeus' cave. Only a few euros to get in but there were some nice photo ops. Make this part of your journey.
