Patsos, one of the prettiest villages of Amari is built at an altitude of 450 meters at the foot of Soros mountain. It’s worth visiting the large derelict temple, which is dedicated to Virgin Mary and dates back to 1357 AD. According to tradition, the church had 101 doors and windows and one of them was invisible. Patsos is situated near the homonymous green gorge which ends at Potamon Dam. (The village’s feast takes place on September 8th, when the Nativity of Virgin Mary is celebrated).
