Volax, a village built on a myth or a strange natural phenomenon. Approaching this area, one can not help but wonder how so large round rocks scattered to such an extent. As if the Titans played fanatically stone throwing (myth) or a geological phenomenon in the region that was extremely intense. Granite eroded by moisture and air (natural phenomenon) turning it into a landscape reminiscent of another planet or another time. Kind of like the Stone Age might say. Very beautiful and very unique landscape! Somewhere between the granite blocks has been built a whitewashed village with narrow streets, bougainvillea and flowers. The village is famous for the art of basketry, with the visitor having the opportunity to see the craftsmen knit. We, for example, cleaned wicker rods, the basic material together with the reed in the manufacture of baskets, taking part in the process. From Volax start and cross wonderful trails to Agapi and Falatado and the surrounding villages. The taverns serve fourtalia, local sausages and other local recipes. Walking through the village you will find the Folklore Museum and the source with the laundresses. The walk acquires special artistic interest, for poems are patiently written by someone on old doors of the village. Kalvos, Elytis, Kavafis and other poets presented in a great way! Thanks for the artistic intervention!
