The Fossil Footprint

The wonder of the Ancient fossil Foot Print
(“Kolokotroni’s foot print”). On the northwestern side of, the village, there rests a big limestone with a perfect fossil foot print. The older villagers tell the legend of the Father of the Greek Independence Revolution, Kolokotroni. They say that Kolokontoni and his men on their horses, used to use that spot as an observation point for approaching Turks. One day, when Kolokotroni dismounted from his horse, his foot left an imprint upon the rock!

The third wonder, the ice cold spring of Vasta, Greece

The third wonder, is the ice cold spring on the top of mount Tetrazion, the village's highest territory. The water is so cold that is very hard for anyone to keep it's hand in the water more than 40 seconds! The mystery is, where is that water coming from? Looking at the surrounding mountain tops, one can easily assume that the God Apollo used to refresh himself at this spring as his temple is in sight at the mountain top at the west side below.
