From the Dionysos Estate the track turns left and starts to head towards the sea. The track provides stunning views over Kumlubük Bay, the Dionysos Canyon, and back towards the Dionysos Estate. A large area of unusual, large rock formations provides another stopping off point. Look out for the wild flowers growing in the deep spaces between the rocks.
Keep an eye out for bright red Cytinus ruber plants. These are parasitic flowering plants, usually parasitizing rock roses. Depending on the time of year you may see them covered in small white flowers.
The track joins the Amos road next to the entrance to the Ancient City of Amos ruins. If you haven’t had chance to visit these ruins, now would be a great time!
Amos City dates to the Hellenistic era and now consists of an amphitheatre on the side of the hill, a temple and statue pedestals. Surrounded by ramparts dating back to the same time, this amphitheater is in good condition, including its seating area, side walls and stage with three chambers. Excavations in 1948 by Professor George Evards Bean revealed four inscriptions, which mentioned three rental contracts, thought to date from around 300 to 200 B.C.
