VILLAGESChurch of the Panagia ANO KARYES At an altitude of 980 metres above sea level, Ano Karyes is a dead end village on the eastern slope of Mount Lykaion. Initially, it looks like any other mountain village until you see the museum that is nearing completion. No doubt some of its prospective visitors will be the competitors and spectators that flock to the area every four years for the modern Lykaion Games. Also, since 2004, a US research team has made Ano Karyes its base during archaeological excavations on Mount Lykaion. Clearly, the team will benefit from improved facilities as the village adapts to accommodate the project.
