As the name states, this village lies at the bottom of a ravine. It is so effectively concealed that the visitor does not see it until reaching the top of the overlooking hill. Many people lived on the island’s north shore, in Gomati, before migrating to Katalakkos for safety from piracy threats. The local church, Agios Modestos, was constructed by the residents in 1856 with their own money and effort. It features a basic gabled roof and colourful wood-carved shields that date from the early twentieth century. The region features the Sand Dunes, a 70-acre sandy area far from the shore, as well as the Pachies Ammoudies where the protected “sea lily” blooms in August.
