"the old plane tree" Central Square And Arapis Fountain Tip by mindcrime
Central Square And Arapis Fountain, Pramanda: 2 reviews and 10 photos
The old plane tree (platanos in greek) is situated next to the church of Agia Paraskevi in the central square (I think the official name must be Stratigos Margaris). The tree must be more than 150 years old and the locals are really proud of it.
The local cafés have tables under the tree so you can enjoy its chilly shadow during a sunny day while you have your drinks. During high season the square get packed as it is a popular meeting point sooner or later everyone will pass by. It was very funny listening some locals telling me:
oh, when I was a young boy I thought the tree was a huge tree, now I find huge the distance to walk back home :)
At one edge of the square next to the church is a war memorial (pic 3) while the other side is dominated by the famous arapis spring where people go to get fresh water (pics 4-5).
