Agkairia village is located at the centre of Paros, 12 km from Parikia. There is nowhere to stay, but it is well worth a visit. Hikers are the most regular visitors as they traverse the path to the monastery of St. Theodoroi and the monastery of St. Giannis Spiliotis. Asking directions, the hiker will easily find his bearings. Both routes are magical and the kindliness of the reception of the monks can be deeply affecting.
