Appreciate the engineering and incredible views of the Corinthian and Saronic gulfs, at the Isthmus Canal.
Be amazed by the beauty of Agia Theodora of Vasta, a small Byzantine church that has 17 holly and maple trees growing from its roof.
According to the local legend, Theodora lived in the 10th century in the town of Vasta. When the area was raided by bandits, she disguised herself as a man to join the defense. In the battle that followed she was fatally wounded, and just before her death asked God to change her body into a church, her hair into a forest, and her blood into the water that will feed the trees.
The villagers, moved by her bravery, built a church at her grave. Legend has it that a local river re-routed to pass directly under the church. Eventually, trees grew from the roof of the church. The site has become important for Greek Orthodox pilgrims and sightseeing visitors.
