This short walk to the eastern edge of Ancient Phigaleia is best undertaken in the evening when the graveyard is at its most atmospheric. It starts with a stroll on a typical old village path that emerges at the ancient fountain house. Situated under a huge plane tree, this was an elaborate structure in ancient times and is an inspiring place for a picnic.
     The return journey involves an uphill climb on the crazy paved road, past the old school house, to reach the graveyard and a C 13 - 14 Byzantine church.
