Gorge of Mintri
The gorge of Mintri is 6 km long; it starts from the settlement of Philippoi, on the east area of Messara and ends to the south sea of Tsoutsouras. Regarding the morphology of the gorge, it is open, without narrow passages, ideal for summer hiking. Along it there are mainly carob trees and a spring of drinking water is found halfway.
One can cross the gorge starting from the middle, where there is the road that leads to Tsoutsouras. The path passes through the riverbed of Mintris.
The area is known for its great archaeological interest, the excavations and the numerous findings that have been revealed. Even within the gorge, near Tsoutsouras, there are remnants of the ancient city of Inatos.
