Gyri Zakynthos: Gyri is one of the highest and oldest villages in Zakynthos, established in the 15th century. Located at an altitude of about 550 meters above sea level, in the centre of the island, it offers spectacular views to the surrounding nature. Nearby you will find the Hayiotis Cave which is 60 meters deep with beautiful rock formations.
Gyri is a very tranquil and rural village, as most villages on the western coast of Zante. Do not miss the old church with the paved path in front. Gyri is a fine place to relax, meditate and feel one with nature. The top Mount Vrachionas with its 753 meters above sea level can be reached on foot from the village.
