The Towers

The Towers are the most unique part of Papigo. These impressive rocky formations are in the south of Astrakas crown connecting it with the ravine of Vikos. The tallest of these towers stands at 1788 m. high. At their foot, the Towers shape a plateau, the Gkovostitsa, where some years ago hundreds of sheep used to graze. In 1965, two pioneer climbers, the P. Jdosidis and the N. Kotzias climbed the Tower "Koupo" after 17 hours and the western Tower "Ptino", after 12 hours.
