Fodor's Review

In the small mastic village of Armolia, 5 km (3 miles) north of Pirgi, pottery is a specialty. In fact, the Greek word armolousis ("man from Armola") is synonymous with potter. To the west, above the village there is an impressive Byzantine castle that was built in 1446, and to the east is the wonderful 18th century baroque-styled Vrettou Monastry.
