There you will find the Agiou Ioanni (St. John) church.The length of the route from the lake to the forest is 5 kilometres and requires about 2,5 hours when hiking uphill and 1,5 hours when hiking downhill.If you would like to get to know the village better, a walk through the narrow alleys of the village may hold many surprises.

The forest of Rouvas, is an important ecosystem of holly trees of national interest. The forest area covers about 30,000 acres.
