Other parents say...

  • Maybe one of the easiest gorges for walking with your kids. Labelled with scaffoldings, bridges, paths and ledges with ropes.

  • The ambience withing the church of St. Anthony under the rock shelter is quite devout. Among the most picturesque churches to calm down and pray.

  • You are surrounded by nature…the only thing that you hear are birds and running water. Enchanting.

  • A very good alternative to the gorge of Samaria for both kids and less fit adults.
