Saint George the Refuge

About 800 meters from the point where Paths 1 and 4 diverge near the church of the Holy Apostles (Agii Apostoli), a narrow but smooth, passable path will lead us to the castle/monastery of Saint George the Refuge (Agios Georgios Katefio), which is wedged into the rocks, and was built in 1754. The original church was a single-aisled vaulted basilica, while the dilapidated domed buildings surrounding it were the monks' cells. From Saint George, Path 4 continues to Episkopi, although there is practically no path. Descend to the northeast through the fields, keeping the northern slopes of the mountain of the Prophet Elias (Profitis Ilias) on your right.
