Spent a few hours here. The hike to the St Anthony's church is quick and easy. The church is absolutely worth a look. For more religious people you can write a prayer on paper and slip it in the rocks, light a candle, buy an...More

Came for an afternoon walk at the gorge. Very nice place to see not so hot. Footpath could be marked better. A good activity to do the afternoon when it's not to hot. Great place to stop and relax

Loved this park! 😊 It is not for the faint-hearted as this park will challenge your fair and strength. It is hard, so I would recommend the full route only for those who are fit or excercise regularly.

Lovely gorge, bet it looks totally different in full flood, not for the infirm or young children really, would take descent footwear or climbing boots. Nice taverna for a meal.
