#116 Bridge of Ksiropotamos

 


If you continue straight ahead from the bridge in Chelimodi, before the tunnel of Agios Nikolaos you will see on your right the bridge of Ksiropotamos. It is located in the region of the village of Seniko and it bridges Ksiropotamos River, and is 4,8km far from the crossroad that leads to Seniko. It is an arched stone bridge with a smaller auxiliary arc on its right side, mainly for its stabilization. In the past, it served as a mean of transportation and communication for the residents of the regions of Ntouskara and Olitsika. Unfortunately, there is no knowledge of its date of construction and its builders.
 

Construction characteristics

 

  The wide deck of the bridge is paved and there are some parapets on its sides.

Additional historical, cultural and touristic data

  The priory of Dihounios

The priory of St Dimitrios Dihounios is built at an altitude of 550m on the road that leads to Seniko. The name of the priory, most likely, comes from the spot the priory was built, where two ravines merge. According to another version, it took its name from the location "Ntixouni" which in Arvanite means "two stakes" or from the two towers it once had. The current priory is the second that was built in that spot, however, the date of construction of the first one is something we don't know. Nevertheless, we know that bishop Trikkis Dionysius the Philosopher was a monk there and started there his revolution in 1611, the failure of which led to the destruction and seizure of his property and his relics.

Museum of Folklore of Lyggos

It is housed in the village's old Elementary School and was founded in 2004 by the Embellishing Association of Lyggos "The Holy Trinity"

Its exhibits are from the mid-19th century to the 1970s and are about the social, agricultural and school life of the residents of the village.
