THE IMPOSING KOURTALIOTIKO GORGE, is narrow and has wild beauty. Its slopes are full of caves and springs. When the wind blows you can hear clapping sounds – in the local dialect they are called kourtala. This is from where originates the name. In its depths flows Kourtaliotis river which falls in Preveli monastery. Aghios Nikolas church is located in Kourtaliotiko gorge. Tradition says that when the saint touched the rock, water sprang out of the places which he touched with his fingers. These are the five springs of Kourtaliotis gorge and are located close to the church. It is worth to go down the stairs and see them. Close to Aghios Georgios church is Aghia Triada fresco which depicts the Holy Spirit as a dove coming out the mouth of God - a fresco unique for all the territory of Greece.
