The trails begin at Mandraki, the capital of Nisyros, head to the South and end up at Evangelistria. The weather was sunny and warm. We got those trails at the early hours and during our route we admired the plants and the trees that surrounded us. Soon we reached at Evangelistria Church where we rest for a while under the branches of the huge terebinth tree.
Afterwards we followed the path which led us into the village of Emporios and we had the opportunity, during that part of our route, to admire the Spiladia, stone buildings with one or two rooms in which farmers spend the night during harvest, so they were temporary housing and at the same time were storage space for the tools, the Vastadia, drystone wall which turned the inclining soil to step after step of farming lan and the impressive forms of Aeolian erosion of the Akimaronas dome dacitic lava.
From the center of Emporio, a nice path led us to Laki where all craters can be found.
