Sidirokastro or the village of sculpture, is built amphitheatrically on two hights, Kastro and Ai Lias. It is surrounded by masterful and beautiful sculptures. There is a white marble staircase with its 88 steps that leeds to the Agios Nikolaos church. Its flanks are adomed by artworks of the sculptor Kostas Georgakas.
Vanada is a very attractive small village. It is scenic both thanks to its old houses and its abundant green, but mainly because everything is carefully renovated. It does not take long to understand that the correct type of development is among the local’s priorities, while respecting history and the environment. In addition, various activities, events (such as those about the Mediterranean nutrition) conferences and festivals are organized with the participation of cultural associations. A short walk in the white – washed and spotless cobb;e roads, under the walnut, chestnut and plane trees, is enough to be relieved from the stress and tensions of city-life.
