Park
“The pine forest of Plaka is located near the village of Antimachia. The forest is home to a large number of tame, free roaming peackocks; visitors may touch and feed them since they are familiar and friendly to people. Its location within a gorge and the dense shade of the trees create a cool and rejuvinating atmosphere, even in the hot summer days. Visitors can admire the peackocks, enjoy their stroll and relax on the benches that are situated in parts of the forest.”
