Prodromos is one of the most traditional settlements of the island, five kilometers away from Lefkes, with fertile land, picturesque whitewashed buildings and few residents. It doesn’t offer accommodations, but you may be creatively occupied, since it is a dive into history and civilization. Its initial name was “Dragoulas” or “Tragoulas” after the god Apollo the Goat, who was adored by shepherds, while later, during the 17th century, the faithful people built the temple of Agios Ioannis Prodromos (Saint John the Baptist), decorating it with unique icons and giving a new name to the village. The walk around the place where it is said that the poet Archilogos was born is not limited only to the streets with the bougainvillea and the hospitable cafés, but extends to the picturesque house-workshop of religious painting of the village. The family that preserves it is consumed with passion and love for hagiography, and it is so energetic that it also advocates for the autonomy of the area. Hiking lovers can cross the byzantine path with the ancient marble slabs which leads to Lefkes, and which was used as a channel of commercial transactions. You will spend an hour and a half of euphoria and contemplation among the lush vineyards and you will pass through the slabs that remain as a sign of unique civilization. One try will convince you.
