Kouroutes

Kouroutes village is situated at the southwest foot of Psiloritis, at an altitude of 510 m. It named after the Curetes, the mythical residents of Psiloritis who protected newborn Zeus with their war dance from Saturn, who was eating his children. A little bit outside the village, in the area Amygdales, there are traces of an ancient settlement (of late-Minoan or roman period) in which however systematic excavations haven’t been organized. It is worth visiting the churches of Annunciation and St. John. (The feast of St. Titus takes place every year at the 25th of August).
