An easy half-day walking tour. Arrival in Avdelopigado area. We start a downhill path to Potamia and the church of Panagia Theoskepasti. After 20-30 minutes of hiking we reach the church of Theoskepasti (or Faneromeni) dating back to the first quarter of the 9th century. Inside there are wall paintings. After the visit,we continue on foot and in about 15 minutes we arrive at the small single-aisled church of Saint Mamas. Along the way we will pass in front of the remains of the summer residence of the Catholic bishop. We go to the river and do a little walk under the trees marching southwards alongside. We return and take the path that leads to Kato Potamia. The trail is passable, without  difficulty. We arrive after about half an hour in Kato Potamia square where we can get a snack and refreshment  and board the coach to town.
