Additional historical, cultural and touristic data

  The village of Souli, which once stood up to the Ottoman Empire, is located deep in the mountains. The visitors, while having Glyki as a starting point, may use the famous path that is named "the Stairs of Tzavelaena" to climb the steep rocks. The village ruins aren't the only sites of the area. Also very impressive are the ruins of "Kiafas", the big castle that Ali Pasha constructed in order to assure his authority in the area.
