Old Stone Bridge of Palaiokarya

Palaiokarya is a village with many roots. It is usual for people to need some space in order to build their own history. Being all together, but at the same time at some distance, offers them tranquility. This is how they can find their place in the natural environment. Somewhere there, only a few kilometers from Pyli on the way to Tsoumerka, the small river of Palaiokaritis keeps on flowing. In this case as well, a stone-built single-arched bridge connects both banks, while two barriers – one is right at the back of the bridge – let water rush, forming waterfalls. This scenery is accompanied by the sounds of water in every season. In autumn and winter, its rushing babbling creates a steam that surrounds the place in a remarkable way; in spring, the place is flourishing; and finally, in summer, a dive in these waters is hard to resist.
Apart from the barrier and the stone-built bridge, we have the chance to learn about another vivid tradition of everyday life, which is the dristela of Palaiokarya, a natural laundry where people still wash their household covers, while corn flour is ground right next to the local watermill.
νωρίσει κανείς μια ζωντανή ακόμη παράδοση της καθημερινότητας. Τη δριστέλα της Παλαιοκαρυάς, ένα φυσικό πλυντήριο αλλιώς, όπου καθαρίζονται
