Path 2: Chora - Church of Saint George among the Flagstones - Gyftika (Heliport)
(Monopati ton Plakon)

Serifos is ideal for hikes and trails. Eleven paths have been mapped on the island; 1, 1A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 are sufficiently marked, and 7, 8 and 9 partially signposted. About 2.2Km long, Path 2 begins near the three renovated windmills in Pano Chora. It is also called the Flagstone Road or Dromos ton Plakon, because from this point until about the middle of the trail it is paved with wide slabs laid down on top of an old miners' route. It is one of the most famous sights on the island. About 2/3 of the way along the trail, we come to the little church of Saint George among the Flagstones (Agios Georgios, or Ai-Giorgi, stis Plakes). After the church, we continue effortlessly on an unpaved trail until Gyftika, at the beginning of the final stretch leading to the gate of the heliport. Our return trip compensates us with a magnificent view of Chora as well as a downhill walk along the Flagstone Road, starting at the church of Saint George. Estimated walking time: 45 to 50 minutes.
