At the point where we end up after descending from the church of the High Cross (Psilos Stavros), there is a snack bar where we can purchase refreshments and relax a bit in the shade. From here the path proceeds for about 350 meters on the road (toward Fira) and then ascends again toward the next church of the Prophet Elias (Profitis Ilias). Shortly after that, there are two options. Both lead to the church of the Prophet Elias. The first, on the right, is steeper and more difficult, but shorter, running along the edge of the caldera. The second, on the left, is a smoother cobblestone path with a gentler slope, but it passes behind the Prophet Elias mountain (with views to the east) and then ascends to the right on the paved road that reaches the church of the Prophet Elias.
