Portes (Doors)

Ee Portes, which means The Doors, is the narrowest point on the Vouraikos Gorge route. Here the little train passes through a tunnel which has two large iron doors at its entrances (hence the name). In the past, the doors were used to keep out pedestrians, allowing only the train to pass through. Today the doors have rusted and fallen, but they are still there. The landscape is impressive and simultaneously imposing—a landscape that has been shaped by the erosive power of water. Two tunnels with two metal bridges were built for the rack railway, the old and very narrow one through which the little train used to pass, and the newer one that is used today.
