of Ayia Fila, Palodia, Paramytha and Gerasa. As soon as you leave
Gerasa you pass through the beautiful evergreen forest of Ayia Paraskevi
where after two kilometers you come to Kalo Chorio. The neighboring
villages are Zopygi, Louvaras, Ayios Pavlos and Ayios Constantinos.
inhabitants of these five villages work in the fields, growing vegetables
and fruit but mostly cultivating vineyards for the production of
Commandaria, a port-like wine that in Homeric times was known as
"Nama", before being given its present name by the Crusaders.
