A walk to Pedi from Chorio on Symi Greece.
This is just one of the ways to take a walk down to Pedi from the Old Town - which goes via the Symi countryside. Also of course, once at Pedi you could also wander a little further along to visit the nice beach at Ag. Nikolaos).
This really nice path goes between high stone walls and passes a stone shelter (dated 1909) - here there is a gate on the left which you can go through
and have a snoop the other side of the wall.
Continue along the path eventually crossing a stream bed (where you can divert to go on to the fortifications or go
right to Monastery Panagia Eleoussa).
Go left here on a very rubble track which crosses the dry streambed and then joins a wide track - go on passing a farm on
the left and then reaching a newly built church**
also on the left. Soon after you pass the church look out for a marked track on
the right which goes through trees - just before reaching a walled garden and gate turn left and follow the path through more trees. The path swings round and
then turns left by the side of a high wall and eventually comes out by a small church at Pedi.
Return by either following the main road back to Chora or you can follow the original path back to the junction after the new church **
turn right and follow the track round the new football pitch and this will bring out onto the main road by a tiny church - turn left and follow this back up into Chora.
