At this place flows water in numerous brooks from the mountain coming down into the valley. Today there are countless restaurants and tea gardens, which are waiting for clientele. Here you can delightfully stay, especially in summer with big heat. It is great to stay outdoor under oaks, laurel, and cypress trees. Only a lot of garbage disturbs this magic place. In the Greek legend the nymph Daphne was pursued by Apollo up to here and transformed into a bay tree at a request of Zeus. Zeus gave Apollo a temple for this loss.
