Five km/three miles from Argos a minor road leads off to the village of Kefalari, famed for its large plane-tree as well as its spring which emerges from the rock and was believed by Pausanias and by Strabo to be the outflow of Lake Stymphalia. Here, where once Pan and the nymphs were worshipped, there now stands a chapel dedicated to the Mother of God as the Zoodókhos Piyí (“Lifegiving Spring”).
We use Kefalari as a delighful stop for refreshments or a simple lunch at the local taverna on the way to /from the Pyramid of Hellinikon.
