MONI PANÀGIA AKROUDÍLA...

...is a monastery built in the 18th century - sanctified to the holy maiden of Akroudíla - is derelicted long ago. The baroque bell tower and the altar are still remaining. It's a very quite place that is not visited by many tourists.
As the monastery is located at the steep coast you'll have a great view to the isle of Paxós.

If you like shwimming or snorkeling in the sea but don't like the crowded beaches, then you should try "Akroudíla Beach" at the south end of Corfu (N 39 21.842 E 20 06.431).

Panágia Akroudíla


HOW TO GET THERE

Start at the south end of Kavós and follow the sign post to "Moni Panágia Akroudíla" through an olive grove. Pass the junction to the beach at N39 22.249 E20 06.557 and go to N39 22.010 E20 06.733 where you can park your car. From here the way leeds you through a wood of cypresses, oaks and ash trees to the monastery.

THE CACHE...

...is hidden in the wall of the bell tower. It's a small plastic box that contains a logbook, pencil and some small trading items.

Urlaub auf Korfu. Da darf ein Döschen nicht fehlen. Heute haben wir unser Mietwagen bekommen und gleich Mal ausgetestet. Diese Dose war unser erstes Ziel. Leider war die Sonne kurz zuvor untergegangen, sodass die Heimfahrt im dunkeln stattfand.

Danke fürs Zeigen sagt p1no

Auf einer kurzen Wanderung bei über 30 Grad tapfer geschwitzt und  bei den Ruinen des Klosters zunächst die Aussicht in die Tiefe fotografiert und dann auf die Suche gemacht. Die Koords sind irreführend, das Listing passt. Das Döschen ist neu und in der Wand beim Glockenturm.
