Path Toward the Church of Saint Anthony

One of the loveliest hiking trails in Anafi, with one of the best destinations, is the path to the church of Saint Anthony (Agios Antonios). 1.7km east of the church of the Virgin Mary Axinon (Panagia ton Axinon), we will see a wooden sign pointing toward the church of Saint Anthony (1 hour) and the church of Saint (Agios) Dimitrios (10 minutes). The first 500m is a passable dirt road, we can leave our vehicle at the end of the road, where we will see a farmhouse. To the right of the farmhouse, there is another small sign or arrow pointing toward the church of Saint Anthony. This is the beginning of the 1.8km path that will lead us to this 13th-century Byzantine church, where some important frescoes survive to this day (such as Ypapantis and the Nativity). Above the church and across from it, the reddish rock called Katraki rises in impressive formations. On the very scenic route, we will pass an old farmhouse and a lush ravine with a spring. The view is impressive almost all the way.
