Ride from the village Koksare to the monastery Preveli, and pass through the famous gorge.
From the village Koksare to Preveli monastery lies the path about 40 kilometers long. It is easiest to overcome it by car, because the road runs through the famous Kourtaliotiko Gorge.

While driving, do not forget to stop at the observation decks, there are descents down. Along the way you will see the Church of St. Nicholas, waterfalls and streams, and rocks in some places are so close to each other, that form a kind of tunnel.
