NEDA RIVER
MAVROMATI BRIDGE
East of Ancient Phigaleia, near the village of Mavromati, are two crossings over the Neda river. The most easterly is a road bridge linking Kouvelas to Dragogi. Before this, there is a sign (in Greek) to a ruined bridge that is only passable on foot, although you can get close by car or motorbike.
     Park up by the open wooded area where you will see a large tree impregnated with rusty metal hooks and whittled sticks which are used for hanging and skinning animals - most likely wild boar. From the shade of the wood, a path leads to the single-arched stone bridge and the river.
