We were leaving Kalavryta having as final destination a village next to Tripoli where we’ve got a contract for a photo shoot. We had one free day to spend in the mountainous hinterland of Peloponnese. Our first choice was to visit the Spileo Limnon (Cave of the Lakes). Eventually we changed our plans and we didn’t regret at all.
Pyli is located less than 20 kilometers west of Trikala, but usually remains cut off from the routes of motorhomers, more interested in seeing Meteora. In my opinion, hovering near, it is a shame not to make the detour and lose this almost unknown corner of Greece, which by the way is well suited for a stopover for the night.
We move further south, hoping to get away from the bad weather. Before arriving at Meteora we decide to go and visit some stone bridges that seem to be not to be missed. The whole central Greece is littered with bridges built in stone and usually in very suggestive positions, that of Portitsa, a few meters from the mouth of a gorge, is considered one of the most beautiful in the country.
