A bench wagon
In Ballenberg, your walk will sometimes cross the carriage of a wagon straight out of the past. If you too would like to treat yourself to an old-fashioned ride, you can book it at the ticket office at the entrance.
A bucolic glade
We can see now a Wattwil (St. Gallen) dwelling house with its small outbuilding. On the left we can see the Appenzell farmer's house.
A hidden church
To south, our virtual stroll ends here at the moment, in front of the door of a small church which is visible only from the sea. A place quite secret and very romantic...
A nice church view
Climbing a few steps, you will have a beautiful view of the church of Agios Andreas with an Aegean Sea background. Do not botch the photo!
A shortcut to the seafront
From the road looping around the village, you can go down to the seaside by taking pleasant little paths across the greenery.
A shortcut to the village heights
To reach the top of the village, you can take one of the small paths that weave a labyrinth through the greenery. (At the moment, our virtual stroll shows you just one example.)
A stroll in the alleys (1)
Kostos is a tiny village, you won't get lost! To see a nice little church, continue around Agios Panteleimonas and head south-east.
A stroll in the alleys (10)
At the end of the alley, we turn left and go southwest to end our stroll at the village square.
A stroll in the alleys (11)

We arrive in the village square near the church Agia Marina with, on the left, a piece of the dome of Agios Panteleimonas.
A stroll in the alleys (2)

Aarau
With its landscape shaped by the Aare River and the Jura Mountains, its picturesque old town, and its central location between Zurich, Basel and Lucerne, Aarau is a very attractive city, real worth the visit.
Aarberg
Swiss capital of sugar, where sugar beets of the whole country are transformed, Aarberg has kept an old town with a covered wooden bridge built in 1566 giving access to a vast market place where good restaurants abound. A sweet stopover!
Aargau
Canton of Aargau is very attractive to nature, art and culture lovers, families and all those who enjoy life. Many rivers criss-cross it: the Rhine, the Aare, the Limmat, the Reuss, and there is also the beautiful Lake Hallwil. Lots to see: castles, fortresses, thermal spas, vineyards, forests, and quiet valleys. Aargau is an ideal gateway to various Swiss cities, such as Basel, Berne, Solothurn, Luzern, Zug, and Zürich.
Aargau buildings (17th/19th c.)
We come to strange buildings that once stood in the canton of Aargau, with characteristic thatched roofs. Until late in the 19th century, straw from grain fields was used as roofing material and as raw material for the braiding industry.
Aargau buildings (17th/19th c.)
The building on the left is an opulent farmhouse from 1609 from Oberentfelden. A little further, you can see the small house of a day labourer, built in 1803, which used to be in Leutwil.
Aargau day labourer´s house (19th c.)
We are in front of the entrance to the small house of a poor peasant, who also had to work as a day labourer in order to live. It was built in 1803 in Leutwil, near Lake Hallwil. Further on, we see another type of house from Aargau and, to the left, a farmer's house from the Basel Jura.
Aargau day labourer´s house (19th c.)
The house is of the same type as the large peasant farmhouse next door, only smaller, with cramped rooms and low ceilings. The owner was a poor farmer who tended orchards and plantations and also worked as a day labourer, helping in the summer with haymaking and doing forestry work in the winter. This poverty has meant that the house has never been modernised in any way and is of rare authenticity.
Aargau dwelling (17th c.)
This late Gothic style dwelling house was built in Villnachern around 1635, two years after a violent fire destroyed part of the village. It probably belonged to a rich owner, wealthy enough to have such a small but very neat house built.
Aargau farmhouse (17th c.)
There used to be many roofs thatched with straw in the Swiss Midlands. Only a few remain. The house from Oberentfelden bears witness to those former thousands of large multipurpose houses with tent-like straw roofs.
Aargau farmhouse (17th c.)
These thatched houses were so widespread that, until the 1850s-1900s, many villages in Aargau resembled tent campsites. With all the rustic comforts of the time, of course!
Aargau pig sty (19th c.)
Until the 1950s, pigs were raised in this type of pole construction, with a trough also filled with kitchen waste. The latrine was a simple hut adjoining the pigsty, a common combination at the time. The pigsty came from Brugg, a small town which remained fairly rural until the 1950s and 1960s.
Abondance (F)
Situated in the Haute-Savoie, 30 kilometres south of lake Geneva, Abondance is a mountain village where you'll have the holiday you always dreamt of. It is also the name of a variety of cows producing the famous Abondance cheese, a must-taste!
Achivadolimni Beach
One of the most beautiful beaches of Milos, ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing. It is named after the small lake just behind, which means "Clam Lake". Continuing the road, you enter the western part of Milos, very wild and ideal for hiking, but the paved road soon becomes a dirt road.
Achivadolimni Lake
This small lake is off the eponymous beach, which name means "Clam Lake". Further on lies the western part of Milos, very wild and ideal for hiking, but devoid of paved roads, where maybe you'll see the dangerous Milos viper (Macrovipera lebetina schweizeri).
Across the forest
We pass through the forest to the next glade, where we will see an old dwelling house from Wattwil (St. Gallen).
Across the forest
The forests of Ballenberg are very beautiful and always provide pleasant passages from one glade to another.
Across the forest
The path through the forest leads up to the Degen inn. Don't miss the didactic panels explaining the various uses of wood!
Adamas
The port of Milos (also named Adamantas) is located north of the inner bay of the island. Ferries sail along the coast, go to the deck to admire the amazing view! The village of Adamas is not extraordinary but its seafront is full of assets.
Adamas Art Space
Just before reaching the street (where we'll turn left to go to Agios Haralambos Church), we pass the entrance of the vast anti-aircraft shelter dug under the hill by the Nazis during World War II. It has become an art gallery, open seasonally from 7pm till midnight.
Adelboden
Adelboden is a traditional Swiss mountain village on a terrace looking south to the Engstligen waterfalls. A hiking and winter sports paradise: 200 km of hiking trails in summer, from family walks to alpine routes, and in winter ski runs and cross-country ski trails.
Adelboden-Oey Cable Car
Short cable car connecting Adelboden to Oey, just below. Useful, as the slope is rather steep!
Adelboden-Tschentenalp Cable Car
Downhill station of the Adelboden-Tschentenalp cable car.
Administration communale de La Sarraz
Un producteur primé par le label de qualité Terravin. Région viticole des Côtes-de-l'Orbe, de Bonvillars et du Vully, appellation Côtes-de-l'Orbe.
Adrian von Bubenberg Statue
This lord of Spiez was commissioned in 1476 to defend Murten, which was besieged by the Burgundian armies. The famous Battle of Murten on June 22nd saved the town and sounded the death knell for the Burgundian State. It pitted two armies of 20,000 men each, that of the Confederates against that of Charles the Bold, and strengthened Switzerland's independent status.
Aeoli Restaurant
This good Greek tavern is located on the sea promenade, between Parikia and Livadia Beach.
Aghapi
One of the secret jewels of Tinos, far from the main roads and visited mostly by hikers. The access road goes up a picturesque valley, bypasses the village and ends in cul-de-sac. The village is pedestrian: just an alley partly underground, which passes under the church and where a nice tavern is nestled. A unique and magical place, ignored by mass tourism!
Aghia Anna
A sandy beach right next to Kalafati Beach, surrounded by hotels and taverns. It's located at the bottom of a small bay facing south, so it's sheltered from the meltemi, the north wind blowing strongly in summer.
Aghia Anna Esplanade (1)
The virtual stroll arrives now on the beautiful esplanade where stands the small church of Aghia Anna. A beautiful view of the sea and of the renovated windmills that surround the town hall.
Aghia Anna Esplanade (2)
The esplanade is encircled in a turn of the one-way road that climbs from Kato Gyalos Beach before heading to the south of Paros. It dominates the sea towards west, offering a beautiful point of view for the sunset.
Aghia Anna Esplanade (3)
Our virtual stroll will soon end at the edge of the water, below the town hall. We will now go down to the hairpin bend to take a path that will extend the promenade...
Aghia Ekaterini
A pretty little chapel on the north shore of Kamares Bay. It's a popular stroll destination: it seems only accessible by boat, but there is a path, and it's even illuminated at night!
Aghia Kyriaki
One of the beautiful beaches of the south coast, reached by an asphalt road. Partially equipped, it is very popular in summer but of course quieter in spring and autumn. Above, to the north-west, is the big eroded crater of Fyriplaka, one of the ancient volcanoes of Milos.
Aghia Marina Church
The beautiful church that watches over the dock of the shuttle ferries connecting Paros to Antiparos from Pounta.
Aghia Marina Church
Aghia Marina is a small church, simple and unpretentious, which deserves a quick visit, while the real show is unveiled on its esplanade.
Aghia Marina Esplanade
Surrounded by steep mountains, the bay of Kamares offers spectacular views. The esplanade of Aghia Marina Church, at the northern end of the beach, is the best place to have an overview.
Aghia Paraskevi Church
Our virtual stroll does not fail to visit the beautiful church of Pollonia, Aghia Paraskevi ("Saint Friday"), bathed in the light.
Aghia Varvara
This elegant monastery built in 1900 is worth a visit. You will see an exhibition of hand-woven textiles and you may be able to see the nuns working at the loom. The beautiful textiles created here are of course for sale and you can bring back beautiful souvenirs or wonderful gifts for your friends!
Aghiassos
The most remote beach on the west coast that can can be reached by road. There is a restaurant and some studios for rent. It's far from everything so it's a good destination to escape the crowds!
Aghii Anargyri
Nestled on the slope of the mountain above Parikia, it's a dream spot to admire the sunset. This monastery is still active and is not permanently open. Appropriate clothing and respectful attitude are of course required.
Aghii Anargyri
This beautiful church is built on the road connecting the port of Kamares to Apollonia, the capital of the island. Nestled in the shade of tall trees, it's an ideal place for a meditative break.
Aghii Anargyri Church
The small church of Aghii Anargyri, at the end of the beach, is lesser known than Aghia Marina, the church just above, but in fact it is much more beautiful and quite surprising!
Aghios Athanasios
Another small detour to visit an old church, which was built in 1746...
Aghios Georghios Faralis
This strange church is not mentioned in the guides and it's one of the secret places of Andros. It stands beside the road and attracts attention by its unusual shape. You will not be able to enter but its architecture and its environment will seduce you.
Aghios Georgios
South of Antiparos, facing the desert island of Despotiko, it's a great place to escape the crowds and rest in quietness. A few scattered houses, taverns at the edge of the water. Far from everything, but served by a bus line.
Aghios Georgios
Port and only village of Iraklia, Aghios Georgios is a perfect destination if you are looking for tranquility. There is a small beach and another nearby, larger (Livadi). The hinterland of the island will appeal to hikers.
Aghios Georgios
A pretty church perched on a promontory above the caldera. Breathtaking point of view and good landmark to find you in Imerovigli!
Aghios Giorgos Church
With 237 churches, Sifnos is the island with the largest number of places of worship in proportion to the total area! Aghios Georgios, like many others of these churches, deserves a visit.
Aghios Ioannis
The cave of St. John is a renowned attraction of Antiparos. Perfectly equipped and well-lit, this magnificent cave is a must-see and an unforgettable visit. In summer, it's a cool haven.
Aghios Ioannis
The Cave of St. John, west of Iraklia, is the largest of the Cyclades and one of the most beautiful in Greece. Access is free, but it's not equipped and visitors must bring torches. The decapitation of John the Baptist is celebrated every year on August 28th. On this occasion, the largest room is illuminated with hundreds of candles.
Aghios Ioannis
A beautiful sandy beach facing the sacred island of Delos, equipped and relatively quiet. There are tavernas and cafes nearby, and since it is relatively far from Chora, it has the reputation of never being overcrowded, even in high season.
Aghios Konstantinos (1)
We arrive on the esplanade of Church Aghios Konstantinos, one of the most romantic places of Parikia, where you will admire spectacular sunsets.
Aghios Konstantinos (2)
The churches of Aghios Konstantinos and Evagelismos tis Theotokou, located side by side, are built on the ruins of an ancient temple. They dominate the sea and are one of the most popular places to watch the sunset.
Aghios Konstantinos Alley
This lane goes around the churches by the back of the esplanade and reaches the corner of Evagelismos tis Theotokou. Enjoy getting lost in the labyrinth!
Aghios Nikolaos
The capital of Anafi, Chora, is above the port of Aghios Nikolaos, at about 260 m altitude. They are connected by a 2 km winding road and there is a bus service.
Aghios Pavlos
An unequipped sand and shingle beach in front of Nikouria Island. You will find it easily: from afar, it looks like a tongue that reaches into the sea. During summer, there is every hour a boat that commutes with the three beaches of Nikouria.
Aghios Spyridon
Here we are in front of the entrance of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Aghios Spyridon. Our virtual stroll ends with a tour of the building and of the interior of the church.
Aghios Spyridonas Beach (1)
Sandy beach with shallow water, lined with tamarisk trees. Ideal for kids, it is nicknamed "Baby Beach".
Aghios Spyridonas Beach (2)
To get an idea of the very gentle slope of this beautiful sandy beach, look out to sea: it is a beach made to bask and let the children paddle, not really to swim!
Aghios Spyridonas Beach (3)
Our 360° virtual stroll ends for the moment here, at the end of Aghios Spyridonas Beach... We hope that it makes you want to discover Antiparos with your own eyes!
Aghios Stefanos
This tiny chapel built in a cave opening onto the sea is one of the tourist attractions of Syros. The chapel is simple, but its environment makes it magical. Its access by a steep path is difficult and dangerous, not recommended if you suffer from vertigo. Be careful not to stay too late, the return by night is almost impossible!
Aghios Stefanos
Sandy beach, relatively protected from the wind, equipped, very popular, with taverns nearby. Just north of Tourlos, the big port of Mykonos, so the quality of the water is not guaranteed given the intensity of the maritime traffic. On the other hand, the beach is famous for being rather quiet.
Agia Anna
A small pebble beach below Chora, not far from the Monastery of Chozoviotissa. Unequipped, it's very popular because its rocky landscape is particularly scenic, but it can be a little dangerous for children.
Agia Anna
Agia Anna, south of Agios Prokopios, is one of the golden beaches on the west coast of Naxos. All these beaches are quite crowded in summer, except the ones that are much further south.

Agia Anna Church (1)
When we shot these 360° panoramas, the key of the church was on the door... Of course, we entered to share with you the atmosphere of this beautiful chapel!
Agia Anna Church (2)
A small chapel very simple and bathed in light, without the ostentatious pomp of many Greek Orthodox churches.
Agia Anna Sea View
The church of Agia Anna is built on a small promontory where you can admire a sumptuous panoramic view of the sea, with the island of Naxos in the background.
Agia Kyriaki
To discover the east coast of Naxos and its wild beaches, you have to go through the mountains and, in Apiranthos, take the winding road to Moutsouna. Widened a few years ago, the road is now very well maintained and you can stop to admire the view here, next to the chapel of Agia Kyriaki.
Agia Marina
A beautiful chapel that stands on the first slopes of the mountain facing the port of Kamares. It offers a superb view of the beach and the bay.
Agia Pakou (back view)
Don't count on us to climb the steps and shoot a panorama from the roof of the church!
Agia Pakou (front side)
We will of course go in this pretty and simple little church...
Agia Paraskevi
Our virtual stroll ends here, in front of the church of Agia Paraskevi. Perhaps we will extend it one day, to show you more aspects of the village of Apiranthos!
Agia Paraskevi
Built in 1600, renovated in 1792 and enlarged in 1873, the church Agia Paraskevi is private but it is possible to visit it. Nestled in the greenery in the mountains above Ermoupoli, it belongs to a shipowner. Curiously enough, it is not very well known but it is worth a visit.
Agia Paraskevi (2)
The church is not open all the time and we did the shooting during the closing hours. So we were not able to photograph the interior and we just propose you a small tour on its esplanade.

Watch our video in our YouTube channel!
Agia Thalassini Church
Standing on its reef, one of the prettiest churches in Chora!
Agia Triada
Just before the village of Lagada, which overlooks Aighiali Bay to the east, watch the cliff to the right of the road and your eyes will be catched by this mysterious chapel embedded in the rock, from the views are really amazing. Go up, access is rather easy, even if you are prone to vertigo.
Agia Varvara Church
A last little church on a tiny square before arriving on the beautiful Unknown Sailor Esplanade facing the ruins of the kastro.
Agios Andreas
Ruins of a Mycenaean acropolis of the 13th century BC, on a hill that offers a breathtaking view. The archaeological site and its small museum are open from Tuesday to Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. (except holidays).
Agios Antonios
A very simple church, of a rare sobriety. You won't find the pomp of many Greek Orthodox churches here.
Agios Antonios Catholic Church
Agios Antonios, built in 1680, is the only Catholic church in Parikia.
Agios Benediktos
Our short virtual stroll takes you from the church of Agios Benediktos to the church of Agios Mihail to share a bit of the atmosphere of this hamlet at the end of the world.
Agios Dimitrios
In 1936, a resident of Ermoupoli had a vision that led to the discovery of an icon of Saint Dimitrios. The beautiful Byzantine style church of Agios Dimitrios was built on the site of the discovery, to welcome the boats arriving on the island. Since then, the ships arriving or leaving the port sound their siren when passing by and the priest answers them by ringing the bells.

Agios Epifanios
The alley that climbs to the kastro passes right next to the church of Agios Epifanios that you will see in the center of the village of Akrotiri.
Agios Fokas
Cape Agios Fokas closes Parikia Bay to the north. Superb church, nice little beaches, panoramic view of Parikia and tranquility (neither bar nor tavern in the immediate vicinity).

The beautiful church of Rachidi, one of the three villages around Katapola Bay.
Agios Georgios
The small church of Lionas, a tiny village lost at the bottom of a vertiginous road starting from Koronos and going along abandoned emery mines.

Seen from afar, Agios Georgios looks like a fortress but inside it is magnificent. These panoramas will undoubtedly feed a desire to visit this Catholic church in the real world!
Agios Georgios Church
A large church in the heart of the old town of Chora, on the street leading to the end of the promontory.
Agios Georgios Valsamitis
A small monastery built around a sacred spring where oracles have foretold the future since the Bronze Age. The place was probably dedicated to the god Apollo and the divinatory tradition did not cease until 1967, when the Orthodox Church forbid this pagan practice.
Agios Giorgos Beach (1)
The beach of Aghios Georgios is the first of the long sandy beaches that line the west coast of Naxos. Adjoining the city, it is of course a very popular beach during the summer season.
Agios Giorgos Beach (10)
Most of Agios Georgios Beach is equipped and lined with restaurants, cafes and bars. It is the beach of Chora, capital and port of Naxos. Very popular and very busy in high season, it is quieter in its southern part.

A little more effort and you can rest for a while in the shade of the pine forest!
Anastasi Church
To crown this virtual stroll in Anastasi, we go around the esplanade to admire the church from different angles and enjoy the panoramic view. Unfortunately, we were not able to shoot panoramas in the church, closed probably for security reasons (these panoramas were shot in October 2020, between two pandemic waves).

Ta Koufonissia: the hollow islands, Ano Koufonissi (inhabited) and Kato Koufonissi (deserted). In the Small Cyclades, southeast of Naxos. Many beautiful beaches.
Ano Sagri
A tiny village close to the Temple of Demeter. The road leading to the temple goes through the village, it's a good point of reference and the landscape all around is beautiful.
Ano Syros
The capital of Syros is actually a double city: the lower part, where the port is located, is Ermoupolis, while the whole old town, stepped on the slopes of the highest hill, is Ano Syros, a picturesque maze of alleys and stairs. It's rather steep, but it's a must visit!
Ano Syros (1)
Our virtual stroll enters into the labyrinth of alleys of Ano Syros towards the big catholic church of Aghios Georgios, which massive construction tops the hill.
Ano Syros (10)
We pass in front of the stairs climbing to the church, which we shall of course visit. Further, the alley descends through the labyrinth of Ano Syros.
Ano Syros (11)
We had not enough time to continue shooting until the exit of the labyrinth, but the virtual stroll continues down towards the south for a while...
Ano Syros (12)
The stroll passes in front of the Catholic church Panaghia tou Karmilou, Our Lady of Carmel, which we will probably visit if the door is open during our next travel to Syros...
Ano Syros (13)
Between old buildings and beautifully renovated mansions, the stroll offers fascinating contrasts, constantly renewed.
Ano Syros (14)
While looking for our way in the labyrinth, we went on a false track which made us discover a superb point of view...
Ano Syros (14a)
Here we are just below the bell tower of Panaghia tou Karmilou and we start thinking that this passage leads nowhere but curiosity wins and we go on...
Ano Syros (14b)
A nice surprise was waiting for us, with an esplanade that offers a splendid view!
Ano Syros (15)
Some say there are as many churches in Ano Syros as there are bars in Mykonos... We are tempted to believe them! We pass here near the church of Aghios Antonios, dedicated to Anthony the Hermit, revered as the founder of Christian eremitism.
Ano Syros (16)
After going around the church, we continue to descend and our stroll will soon end...
Ano Syros (17)
After a last vaulted passage, our 360° virtual stroll will end temporarily... but of course we shall extend it during our next stay in Syros!
Ano Syros (18)
For now, our virtual stroll of Ano Syros ends here. It was done in early October 2018, the day before our return to Switzerland, and we had too little time left to extend it. To discover the rest, you will have to be patient... We went back in mid-May 2019, the sky was overcast and everything was still closed... No luck!
Ano Syros (2)
Ano Syros is such a labyrinth that you may be afraid of getting lost, but there are many signs indicating the directions and you will always find your way after some detours or false tracks...
Ano Syros (3)
Yep, without the signposts we would already be completely lost in the labyrinth...
Ano Syros (4)
No risk of getting lost here, just go straight on!
Ano Syros (5)
When you start from the top of Ano Syros, the walk to Aghios Georgios is very easy, the alley goes up gently.
Ano Syros (6)
We shall soon arrive at the foot of the church. Another little turn and we shall be there...
Ano Syros (7)
The alley will now go around the monumental complex of the Cathedral Aghios Georgios, which is the Catholic Diocese of Syros.
Ano Syros (8)
The stroll offers few views of the city of Ermoupoli below, but in a few meters we will finally be able to have a glimpse of the panorama.
Ano Syros (9)
We arrive at the foot of the cathedral complex, which includes the church, the bell tower, the baptistery, the sacristy, the hospitality room, the historical archive building, the episcopal palace and an abandoned house.

Official website: apollontheater.gr
Apollon Theater (2)
Apollon Theater is a true jewel. When we made these shots, we saw tourists who were reluctant to pay 2 euros to visit this beautiful building. They were wrong. Some panoramic proofs...
Apollon Theater (3)
Inaugurated in 1864 and designed by the Italian architect Pietro Sampo, the theater is inspired not only by La Scala in Milan, but also by the Theater of San Carlo in Naples, the Academic Theater of Castelfranco and the Theater della Pergola in Florence, and its vaulted ceiling is influenced by French architecture.

The building is representative of Appenzell farmers' houses. Typically, in this region, the peasant house resulted from the juxtaposition of the stable and the dwelling house, for obvious practical reasons.

An ideal place to party, its access is prohibited from 9:30 p.m. to avoid abuse. From 9:30 p.m. to midnight, the beach can be privatized to organize an event (contact the castle for more details).

Berner Oberland alpine chalet (16th c.)
Few alpine chalets have survived during centuries. This chalet in Axalp, above Brienz (Berner Oberland), was built in 1520, half a millennium ago. It had only an open fireplace for the cauldron, tools for milking, cheese-making and wood-cutting, and a small room under the roof.
Berner Oberland cheese dairy (18th c.)
We now come to the alp cheese dairy from 1780, which comes from Kandersteg (Berner Oberland). The tiny building you see nearby is a cheese loft, also from 1780.
Berner Oberland cheese dairy (18th c.)
Before continuing the tour towards the dwellings from Berner Oberland, we will go in to witness the traditional production of alpine cheese, as this old cheese dairy is in operation and is one of the attractions of Ballenberg.
Berner Oberland farmhouse (17th c.)
This farmhouse from 1698 comes from Bonderlen above Adelboden in the Berner Oberland. It was the very first house to be rebuilt in Ballenberg in 1970, eight years before the opening of the museum. Let's go in...
Berner Oberland farmhouse (17th c.)
The survival of peasant families often depended on an additional income. The large windows of this house illuminated a workshop where boxes were made from wood shavings, small matchboxes which, from the 1860s to the 1910s, represented a financial supplement for the peasants of the region.
Berner Oberland farmhouse (17th c.)
This type of peasant house had been chosen in the Kandertal since the 15th century. Stable, barn and dwelling were united under the same roof to avoid the long journeys necessary for the care of the livestock.
Bernese Midlands
Here we are in front of the typical buildings of the Bernese Midlands and we'll jump straight to places we've already been. On the left, the path leads to the 17th century granary, on the right it passes an 18th century day labourer's house and leads to the large 18th century peasant's house. We will complete these two tracks another time!
Bernese Midlands barn-stable (18th c.)
This barn-stable was built in 1702 in Faulensee and is representative of this type of building: a lower part made of rubble stones was used as a stable, with a hayloft on the upper floor made of loose logs to improve ventilation.
Bernese Midlands cheese storehouse (18th c.)
As early as the 16th century, Bernese farmers began to build granaries where hard cheeses were matured for several months under their constant care. This dates from 1785 and was once in Wasen in the Lower Emmental. Go back a few metres and pass by the side of the farmhouse to see its facade, continue along the path to go to the French-speaking part of Switzerland.
Bernese Midlands craftman´s house (18th c.) and drugstore (19th c.)
This house of a stocking manufacturer, built in Herzogenbuchsee in 1778, marks the beginning of a new era. Traditionally, agriculture, home work and weaving were combined on the farm. Here, dwelling and workshops are still under the same roof, but agricultural activities are excluded. On its right, you see the "Stöckli" of the drugstore.
Bernese Midlands drugstore (19th c.)
This type of building is called a "Stöckli". It was built around 1820 in Köniz in the Bernese Midlands. At that time, it was used as a dwelling for valets and servants. In Ballenberg it became an old-fashioned drugstore.
Bernese Midlands drugstore (19th c.)
All the furnishings and tools of an old-fashioned drugstore are combined in this "Stöckli". A vision from a world where most of the medicines, powders and ointments were made from the plants of an adjoining garden.
Bernese Midlands farmhouse (17th c.)
This farmer's house was built at an unknown date in Eggiwil in the Emmental, the land of the famous cheese. It was first mentioned in a document from 1701. It was an isolated farmhouse typical of the region, nestled at an altitude of 890m in a landscape of hills and forests.
Bernese Midlands farmhouse (17th c.)
Around 1800, linen weaving became an additional source of income in the Emmental. The weaving workshop was located in the cellar and occupied the entire household. Above, the dwelling was in two parts with a common kitchen. One side was intended for the older generation, the other for the young heirs of the farm.
Bernese Midlands farmhouse (18th c.)
This rich farmer's house was built in 1797 in Ostermundigen (Bern), apparently more to display the owner's prestige than to make daily life easier. It houses a shop where you can buy tasty local food products.
Bernese Midlands farmhouse (18th c.)
At the bottom of the path we see a farmhouse dating from 1709, which comes from Madiswil in Upper Aargau, north-east of the Bernese Midlands.

Bettmersee (1)
Here we are at the lakeside, at the spot where flows the Bettmerbach, a small brook going down to the Rhone river near Betten Talstation (cable car downhill station) 1080m below.
Bettmersee (2)
Bettmersee is an ideal place for leisurely strolls along the trail around the lake (from mid-June to mid-October, approx. 1km). The trail is suitable for strollers and wheelchairs.
Bettmersee (3)
Above the eastern shore of the lake stands in the distance the summit of the Bettmerhorn, overlooking the Aletsch glacier. A spectacle not to be missed!
Bettmerstafel (1)
There is about 1km to the bottom station of the gondola lift which climbs up to the Bettmerhorn, with a fairly gentle slope (50-60m difference in height). But you won't regret the walk!
Bettmerstafel (2)
The mountain you can see in the distance is the Bettmerhorn, which rises to 2858m. The gondola lift will take you just below the summit at 2647m.

Between the beaches (1)
We are now taking you to the beach of Mikri Vigla, on the other side of the cape. Along the way, we will make you visit Oasis Studios, which you see a little further...
Between the beaches (10)
The stretch of water that you see right in front is not the sea... It's a lake, and in May 2019 it had terribly overflowed due to the spring rains!
Between the beaches (11)
We arrive near the lake which is set back from the beach and we turn right to go towards the cape. The lake is actually further away but at the time of these shots (early June) it had overflowed due to the rains of spring 2019, flooding the space where the bus turns.
Between the beaches (2)
Oasis Studios are aptly named... Palm trees, a swimming pool, a bar and relaxation areas, comfortable studios, an exceptional welcome and breakfasts you will remember all your life... Go for it!
Between the beaches (3)
You don't have to go to Chora to buy your ferry ticket... We pass here in front of a small travel agency that will sell it to you, and at no extra charge... A half-day holiday won!
Between the beaches (4)
Do not look for a path to go towards the cape. There is no shortcut, but the road is not very long!
Between the beaches (5)
Arriving here from Parthenos Beach, turn left and continue straight.
Between the beaches (6)
Coming from Parthenos Beach, turn right. If you turn left, you will reach the north of the beach and the road will continue towards Plaka.

Between the beaches (8)
During springtime, when the island is in full bloom, the stroll is quite bucolic.
Between the beaches (9)
The deep blue of the sea is emerging on the horizon, we are almost there!
Between the glaciers (1)
On the horizon you can see the rounded, snow-covered Allalinhorn peak (4027m), and on your right you can see more peaks over 4000m high. On your left you see the impressive crevasses of the Fee Glacier.
Between the glaciers (2)
If you don't suffer from vertigo, you can go very close to the glacier, which opens its menacing crevasses below.
Between the glaciers (3)
Countless little stupas erected by visitors form a landscape all by themselves. Will you add your own?
Between the glaciers (4)
On the other side of the rocky tongue where we are standing, another arm of the Fee Glacier tumbles down the slopes of peaks over 4000m high.
Between the glaciers (5)
As the winter snow melts, it leaves small glacial lakes with crystalline waters.
Between the glaciers (6)
After this short walk between the glaciers, you will take the cable car back to Saas-Fee with unforgettable memories... and even more so if you decide to walk back down to Saas-Fee! Less than 6km, more than 1000m of difference in altitude, steep passages but spectacular panoramas...

Chora
Capital and port of Naxos, with a picturesque old Venetian town, a lively seafront and the famous "Portara", monumental pediment of an unfinished temple. Urban atmosphere, but the beaches of the bay of Aghios Georgios are nearby.
Chora
As in many Cyclades islands, the capital of Amorgos is located in the hinterland, out of sight of the pirates who once infested the Aegean Sea. With its winding alleys, its old Venetian kastro and its alignment of windmills, Chora will delight those who love traditional Cycladic villages.
Chora
Chora, the capital of Andros, is a city of some 2,000 inhabitants, with a modern part and above all a picturesque old town perched on a promontory. At the end, a statue of the unknown sailor watches over the ruins of a Venetian kastro. Absolutely exceptional!
Chora (Anafi)
The capital of Anafi, Chora, is the only village on the island and its reputation is to be one of the most authentic of all Cyclades. As Anafi is relatively isolated, it has only recently opened to tourism and is a real paradise for those who love traditional Greece.
Chora (Folegandros)
The capital of Folegandros, Chora, is 3 km away from the port of Karavostasis. It is located on the top of a cliff, 200 m above sea level. (We have not visited Folegandros yet, the photos displayed here have been borrowed from Wikipedia.)
Chora (Ios)
Chora, capital and only village of Ios, offers a triple face: during the day, it's a picturesque Cycladic village while, at night, it is a party place where alcohol flows freely. In-between, at sunset, it's one of the most romantic places in the Cyclades!
Chora (Koufonissia)
The port of Ano Koufonissi, Chora, is also named simply Koufonissia. It's the only village of the island and all beaches are within walking distance.
Chora (Kythnos)
The capital of Kythnos, Chora, is located in the hinterland, 7.5 km from the port of Merichas. As Kythnos is an island that we have not visited yet, we have neither photos nor detailed information, thank you for your understanding!
Chora (Mykonos)
One of the most beautiful villages of the Cyclades, to be discovered imperatively out of season or when it's not invaded by the passengers of the big cruise ships. Mykonos and its windmills are with Santorini the most touristic (and expensive) places of the Cyclades...
Chora (Schinoussa)
The tiny capital of Schinoussa is just a 15-minute walk from Mersini, the port of the island. Both villages are connected by the only asphalt road on the island.
Chora (Serifos)
Chora, the capital of Serifos, stands on a steep hill above the port of Livadi. Seen from the port, this traditional Cycladic village gives a dizzying impression. It offers of course amazing views of the Aegean Sea and the nearby islands. We haven't visited Serifos yet, but the view from the ferry really makes us want to discover this island still unspoilt by mass tourism!
Chora (Tinos)
Port and capital of Tinos, Chora is the city of the Basilica Panaghia Evangelistria, one of the most important places of pilgrimage of Greece. The city is not a Cycladic village but, with its lively seafront, it has a lot of urban charm. It's an ideal place to stay if you wish to visit the island.
Chora Windmills
As in many Cyclades islands, the capital of Amorgos is located in the hinterland, out of sight of the pirates who once infested the Aegean Sea. With its winding alleys, its old Venetian kastro and its alignment of windmills, Chora will delight those who love traditional Cycladic villages.

Chozoviotissa Monastery
The Monastery of Chozoviotissa, literally inlaid in a vertiginous cliff, faces the immensity of the Big Blue. This unlikely building is the most famous attraction of Amorgos and the steep climb as such is an unforgettable experience, offering amazing views. Just don't go when tour buses pour out groups of visitors!
Chozoviotissa: a terrace
The monastery is still active so in fact it cannot be visited. You will only see the entrance, the church (where photos are prohibited) and two rooms with terraces. Before leaving you will be offered a loukoumi, water and a small glass of psimeni (liqueur made from raki and honey, scented with cinnamon).
Chozoviotissa: in front of the door
Good to know: the visit to the monastery is very short, you will not be able to linger inside and there can be quite a wait, the place can only accommodate very few visitors at a time.
Chozoviotissa: the small hall at the entrance
Upon entering, visitors are asked to leave backpacks, trekking poles and all that is superfluous. Seeing the narrow staircase, they understand why!
Chozoviotissa: the vertiginous facade
Seen from below, the monastery looks massive. In fact it is a narrow building pressed against the cliff. Apparently, in some places, it is only 150 cm wide!
Chrizbodu

Donnerstafel (1)
When the path splits into two parallel paths, continue climbing on the left path.
Donnerstafel (2)
We are almost at the start of the gondola lift to the Bettmerhorn, which is just above the rock face on the left side of the path.
Donnerstafel (3)
The path will now make a loop, still gently sloping, but if you prefer to take a steeper shortcut, take the path that goes to left a little further.
Donnerstafel (4)
Continue straight ahead on the gently sloping path, or take the shortcut you see on the right as you look back (you can see the start of the Bettmerhorn cable car at the end of this shortcut).
Donnerstafel (5)
Here we are in the bend of the path, keep going up to the Bettmerhorn cable car and the Bettmersee lake.
Donnerstafel (6)
We pass just below the Bettmerhorn gondola lift. The entrance is on the side of the building.

Dorfgasse (Village Alley)
These shots were taken in June 2021 and the route of 41 panoramas is available on Google Maps and Street View. The complete virtual stroll will be integrated into our website at a date yet to be determined. We are taking advantage of the good weather to shoot new panoramas as a priority!
Dorfplatz
We are standing on the Dorfplatz (village square) of the capital of the canton of Obwalden, which together with Nidwalden forms the canton of Unterwalden, one of the founding States of Switzerland.
Dorfplatz
It is on this beautiful village square, surrounded by large picturesque chalets, that you will find the information point of the tourist office.
Dorfplatz
A tiny village above Gstaad, on the road to Pillon Pass, which connects Saanenland to Diablerets in the Vaud Alps. Near the village, a small gondola lift takes you up to Lake Sénin and the Sanetsch Pass, which connects the Bernese Oberland to the Valais.
Dorfstrasse (1)
The Village Street ("Dorfstrasse") is a pedestrian street, which is closed to traffic. Our virtual stroll starts here, with an eastward-facing panorama, and we will head west towards the village square.
Dorfstrasse (10)
We pass to the south of the church, along a beautiful green area which is unfortunately private.
Dorfstrasse (11)
We are here next to the large car park which is located west of the village. Follow this path to go up to the church.
Dorfstrasse (2)
The village of Saanen is much smaller than the village of Gstaad, so you won't get lost...
Dorfstrasse (3)
We are already arriving in view of the Village Plaza ("Dorfplatz").
Dorfstrasse (4)
The main street runs along the village plaza and continues westwards to the beautiful church of Saanen.
Dorfstrasse (5)
The panoramas of our virtual stroll were shot in July 2020, between two pandemic waves. Saanen looks almost like a ghost town, with only a few open terraces.
Dorfstrasse (6)
The panoramas of our virtual stroll were shot in July 2020, between two pandemic waves. Saanen looks almost like a ghost town, with only a few open terraces.
Dorfstrasse (7)
Our virtual stroll will continue to follow the main street towards the church of Saint Mauritius, of which the bell tower can be seen in the distance. Note that it is from this small square that Bahnhofstrasse starts, which joins the MOB train station, 110m further south.
Dorfstrasse (8)
We have now left the pedestrian street. The paid car park we are passing by is not very big, you will have more chances to find a place further on, towards the church.
Dorfstrasse (9)
To visit the church, you can go up Bortgässli street which starts on your right, or you can go straight ahead to go around the church and see it from all angles.
Douanne / Twann
A beautiful winegrowers village on Bielersee (Lake of Biel/Bienne), one of the three lakes at the foot of the Jura mountain range. Nice stopover to taste te wines!
Dragon
Our stroll through Alyko Ghost Hotel starts here, near the place where you can park, in front of "Dragon", a 2018 work by Wild Drawing (WD Street Art), a Balinese artist based in Athens. A pile of debris that the artist has transformed into a work of art...
Drios
A small village on the southeastern coast of Paros. Small beach, taverns, strange rocks plunging into the sea. A nice and little known place, far from the crowd.
Drios Beach (1)
The beach of Drios is not very big but it is one of the most friendly of Paros. It is best known for its strange rock structures...
Drios Beach (2)
Some taverns and some accommodations make the beach of Drios an excellent choice for a stay away from the crowd of the big beaches of the east coast.
Drios Beach (3)
These strange rock formations do not look natural and some say these are prehistoric docks. In fact, the memory of their story has been lost over the millennia...
Drios Fishing Port
A small pier protects the tiny fishing port of Drios. Do not be fooled by the cars you see, parking here is almost impossible, the only access road passes along the taverns of the beach...
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (1)
Heading north along the coastal path, you will reach the beautiful beach of Chrysi Akti, nicknamed "Golden Beach", one of the most famous beaches of Paros. It's a superb stroll, do not hesitate!
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (10)
As you can imagine, these shots were not made in high season, when the hotels are full of vacationers... They were shot in early June 2019, just before the start of the season!
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (11)
All access to the small beaches below the coastal path are not easy. Here you can go down without fear!
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (12)
Even when the coastal path is lined with vegetation that masks the view of the sea, the stroll is very pleasant, especially in spring, when the countryside is in bloom.
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (13)
The access to tiny beaches located below the path are not lacking, but we have not explored them all!
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (14)
We pass here in front of a path that goes towards the main road. Follow this path and you will discover Tonia Apartments, a complex of 3 apartments and 1 villa that we recommend for your stay. It is superb, very comfortable, and the price is reasonable!
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (15)
Even if more and more buildings line the coast, the landscape remains bucolic and authentic and you will not regret the stroll. Paros still escapes a galloping urbanization...
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (16)
Straitened between a very small cliff and a large field, this part of the trail offers a superb panoramic view of the sea and its infinite variations of blue.
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (17)
A few steps go down directly to the western end of Golden Beach, a strip of sand that gets shaded as soon as the sun has gone past the zenith.
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (18)
West of Golden Beach, a path leads to Drios Beach along the coast. It is a very nice walk of about 1 km which leads to the small fishing port of the neighbouring village.
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (2)
The coastal path begins just after this small beach. It runs along private properties and hotels, but it is public and it is a very nice walk.
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (3)
You can reach the coastal path either by continuing to the end of the beach or by climbing the stairs hidden here in the greenery.
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (4)
We are here at the end of the coastal path. You can reach the small port of Drios either by going down the stairs to the beach or by continuing the path to reach the beach a little further.
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (5)
The coastal path runs along many properties and hotels that will make you dream of a stay on the east coast of Paros. During springtime, there are flowers all around and it's a real paradise!
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (6)
Throughout the stroll, the coastal path often offers breathtaking panoramic views of the endless shades of blue of the Aegean.
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (7)
Studios and apartments abound along the trail. It is an ideal area if you are looking for a quiet stay in a grandiose environment.
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (8)
The whole coast is in full tourist development but there are still large virgin areas... For how much longer?
Drios-Chrysi Akti Path (9)
There are nice little beaches very easily accessible waiting for you, to be discovered preferably off season... of course!

East pier (1)
Our stroll continues towards the moles that protect the port to the east, along large buildings of the 19th century, witnesses of the time when Ermoupoli was a port more important than Piraeus.
East pier (2)
The harbor side of the promontory is a vast free parking, close to the center of the city, where you will easily find a place for your car... except in high season of course!
East pier (3)
The old buildings of the port are not abandoned, they are still occupied by different institutions, including the Pinacotheque of Cyclades, which houses permanent collections and hosts periodic exhibitions.

The archaeological site is unfortunately completely abandoned and the didactic panels have been erased by time. Only the ruins with their aura of mystery remain...

From the entrance of the sanctuary, we will jump directly to the shady path that crosses the fertile region of the springs of Flerio, from where we will discover the lush gardens where one of the kouroï rests.

Fotodotis Esplanade (1)
To tell the truth, we don't know if this nice square is really called that... The church apparently dates back to the 18th century and is called "Fotodotis, Metamorfosi Sotiros" (Illuminator, Saviour of the Transfiguration).
Fotodotis Esplanade (2)
Our virtual stroll could have ended here, on this beautiful square bathed in the late afternoon lights, but the curiosity was stronger and we kept climbing...

Fribourg
Somewhat a world turned upside down: cold, limestone summits in the south and mild, even Mediterranean-like lakesides in the north. Here, two languages coexist and three very distinct regions overlap: the Prealps, with a mix of tradition and modernity and the famous Gruyère Country, Fribourg and Romont between north and south, and the Mediterranean mildness of the medieval cities of Murten and Estavayer-le-Lac, in the Three-Lakes area.
Fribourg Tower
We are here below the Tower of Fribourg, on Promenade des Avoines which runs along the foot of the city walls. The day we shot these panoramas, the ramparts walk was unfortunately inaccessible due to works.
Fribourg/Freiburg
Capital of the eponymous canton, Fribourg is a bilingual city, as it is located just at the border between French-speaking and Alemannic-speaking areas of Switzerland. Perched on the banks of the Sarine River, its medieval old town is quite picturesque and you won't be disappointed by the visit!

Fyriplaka
There are so many amazing beaches in Milos that you'll not be able to say which one you prefer, but Fyriplaka will be high in your ranking. A paved road, a trail section, then you go down a path. The effort is worth it, you can quench your thirst at the friendly beach bar and the beach, partly sandy, is really scenic!
Fyropotamos
A small church perched on a spectacular rocky cape, a wind-sheltered bay with a beautiful sandy beach, crystal clear waters and typical fishermen's houses of Milos (the "syrmata") are the scenic setting you'll discover in Fyropotamos, on the north coast of the island.
Gaidaros (Didymi)
Do you feel like enjoying a sandy beach on a desert island? Off the airport, the island of Gaidaros (also named Didymi) is waiting for you! A flat island with just a lighthouse and three beautiful deserted beaches on its south coast. With some luck you'll have the whole island for you!

Galissas
The most famous of all the beaches of Syros... therefore the most overcrowded! This does not prevent it from being really superb.

Golden Beach (1)
This virtual stroll is still incomplete and we plan to extend it in 2019. It starts here, in the middle of Golden Beach, and takes you towards Drios.
Golden Beach (10)
The end of the beach, towards Drios, lies at the foot of a tiny cliff that provides some shade in the afternoon when the sun starts going down.
Golden Beach (11)
At the end of the beach, a few steps lead up to the coastal path that connects Chrysi Akti to the small beach of Drios.
Golden Beach (2)
This beach is actually called Chrysi Akti, which means "Gold Coast". It has not been nicknamed Golden Beach for nothing, it is one of the most beautiful beaches in Paros!
Golden Beach (3)
As you can imagine, Golden Beach is very popular and you should avoid it during summer if you do not like crowds. To enjoy it, go in September, when the flow of holidaymakers has calmed down a bit...
Golden Beach (4)
We arrive here at a place that offers everything you need for an active beach holiday... or just to bask on the sand. There are studios just steps away, a very welcoming bar, a diving center and a windsurfing center.

We pass here in front of Rebel Beach Bar, the oldest of the beach since it goes back to the years 70-80. Good to know: formerly only accessible by the beach, the bar now has an access from the main road, with ample parking.

House of Dionysus
This house owes its name to the discovery of an exceptional mosaic representing Dionysos riding a panther, which original is exhibited in the Archaeological Museum. It's a building you see from a distance, its tall marble columns rising above the walls.
House of Kleopatra
No, this house was not the summer residence of the Queen of Egypt, but the home of a wealthy Athenian wine producer... We know these details because the owners had made statues in their own effigy and because there is a large pond to collect the juice of tread grapes!
House of the Dolphins
The House of the Dolphins was probably the home of a rich Phoenician merchant, as the mosaic of its peristyle court (which gave its name to the house) was created by a Phoenician craftsman who signed his work. This amazing mosaic was probably covered with water to bring out its colors and its maritime theme.

This house was three storeys high and probably belonged to a wealthy Italian merchant. It owes its name to a head of the bearded god Hermes which was found there and is now exposed in the Archaeological Museum.

The House of the Trident was probably the home of a wealthy Syrian merchant or captain, because the decorative elements of the columns (the "protomes"), lions on the left and bulls on the right, were symbols of the Syrian gods Hadad and Atargatis.

Driven by curiosity and hoping to find a passage to the alleyway above the church, we made a small detour in Impasse de la Papille ("Papilla Dead End") which, as its name suggests, leads nowhere...

In the alleys
In this first version, our virtual strolls presents just three of our favourite restaurants. We pass here in front of Elia Tavern, which offers traditional cuisine in a very welcoming atmosphere.
In the castle church (1)
Built around the year 1000 AD on the site of a small church from the 7th or 8th century and an ancient burial place, the castle church is a fine example of the early Romanesque architectural style. The Romanesque wall paintings, which are fairly well preserved, were made later, around 1200 AD or a little later.
In the castle church (2)
Built around the year 1000 AD on the site of a small church from the 7th or 8th century and an ancient burial place, the castle church is a fine example of the early Romanesque architectural style. The Romanesque wall paintings, which are fairly well preserved, were made later, around 1200 AD or a little later.
In the Kastro (1)
Passing the gate of the kastro, you can go straight ahead and climb to the heart of the citadel further, or take the vaulted passage that opens on your left, which leads you very quickly to the central square.
In the Kastro (2)
Leaving the vaulted passage, you pass in front of the entrance of the Byzantine Museum, from where you have a spectacular view of the city and the port. Going up the alley, you will soon arrive near the catholic cathedral.
In the Kastro (3)
Take the narrow passage that opens to the right and you will go to the heart of the citadel, to the main square where the Catholic Cathedral stands.
In the Kastro (4)
Along the old fortress in the center of the citadel, a long lane leads to the lower part of the city and to the seafront.
In the Kastro (5)
Except at both ends, this steep alley is not very interesting, but it is convenient to go down directly towards the seafront, without getting lost in the maze of the kastro.
In the maze of shady alleys
Between waterfront and village heights, shady alleys with some flowing streams create a real labyrinth. (Here, our virtual walk is a little imprecise and we will work on it during our next stay.)
In the woods
Leaving this small forest, we will arrive in the "Mittelland", the Bernese Midlands, the whole central part of the canton, between the Jura chain in the north and the first peaks of the Alps in the south.

Inside Agia Pakou
It is a very simple church, not overloaded with ornaments, which invites you to take a meditative break.
Inside Agios Fokas
From the ferry, the blue dome of the church of Agios Fokas is the first thing you see as you round the eponymous cape to enter the bay of Parikia. A beautiful church, small beaches, an extraordinary panoramic view of the capital of Paros and absolute tranquillity (no bars or taverns in the immediate vicinity).
Inside Analipseos Church
The church is very simple, its decoration is very elegant and the sun already low on the horizon bathes it in light.
Inside Stavros Keramotis
The Stavros Keramotis Church (the "Cross of Keramoti") stands in the mountains at the crossroads of Keramoti, Apiranthos, Moni and Koronos. When you pass by, don't miss the view!

Legend has it that the chapel was built on the site of a statue of the Virgin Mary by two inhabitants of Zermatt who had lost their way in a thick fog on the Theodule glacier, in gratitude for their miraculous rescue.
Inside the round church
Part of the interior was taken over from the earlier church. The richly carved high altar of 1744 is inspired by the Ringacker Chapel in Leuk, with a group depicting the Assumption of Mary, the apostles and various saints. On the left, the rococo altar with the figure of St Joseph dates back to the end of the 18th century.
Inside the Wildman Tower
This square tower dates back to the 14th century and has been transformed many times. It serves as a cultural place in summer, with an exhibition every week and a show every Thursday evening. It also serves as a setting for an escape game outside the summer months.

Ioulidha
Ioulidha, also named Ioulis, is the capital of Kea, located in the hinterland, 7.3 km from the port of Korissia. It's close to the famous Lion of Kea, a monumental sculpture dating from the archaic period. The large village, with its tiled roofs, offers a typical image of Kea, very different from the usual Cycladic villages.

Isoz Claude
Un producteur primé par le label de qualité Terravin. Région viticole du Chablais, appellation Yvorne.
Isternia
The other "marble village", less known than Pyrghos but equally picturesque. Many Greek sculptors were born there and marble is omnipresent. The village is built on a steep slope, above the road leading to Pyrghos along the west coast. The road doesn't cross it and seen from below you can't guess how charming it is. Take the time to go up, you won't regret the effort!
