Elenes

The picturesque little village of Elenes, surrounded by trees and lush vegetation, is located three (3) km from Meronas at an altitude of 640 meters . Close to the village, in the cave “Margele”, traces of human presence (6000 BC) have been identified. Characteristic building in the village is the old single-teacher Elementary School with its “botanical garden” . (In the village there is the legend of the buried golden pig with its golden piglets in Daskiana, next to the fountain of the village. Every year on 6th of August the feast of Transfiguration takes place.)
