VILLAGESChurch of Saint Nicholas KEFALOVRISI Kefalovrisi (Ripesi) is a picturesque village on the road from Kopanaki to Ancient Phigaleia. First settled around 1420, it has loads of local flavour and a main street so narrow that even a car cannot pass comfortably. Add two-way traffic, parked vehicles, lorries and the odd bulldozer and this otherwise peaceful hamlet can become a bit stressful to travel through. Take the strain out of driving by stopping for a drink in one of several caféneons or a meal in Taverna Ripesi on the northern edge of the village beyond the public fountain. Built in 1905, this is known as the Megali Vrysi.
