THE MYSTERIOUS DRAGONHOUSES OF EVIA
A very challenging archaeological wonder lies in the Southern Evia: it’s the 25 famous huge constructions called Drakospita. Always located on steep and dominating location, they are built with huge slabs of limestone which form a pyramid-shaped roof: opposite walls converge towards each other as the slabs are put on top one another with each of them protruding as regards its inferior one.
The most impressive of all the Drakospita of Evia is the one located on Mt Ochi, at an altitude of 1389 meters, above the town of Karystos. Hiking up Mt Ochi is a lifetime experience. The area is a Natura 2000 one, for its natural beauty, its very rare –isolated for thousands of years – flora, and its wild fauna.
