Zakynthos Volimes Village
Volimes Zakynthos: The village of Volimes is located 33 km north west of Zakynthos Town. It consists of two villages: Ano (Up) Volimes and Kato (Down) Volimes both found round an agricultural area. Volimes is a large scenic mountainous village which still retains its traditional character and layout. It is still a very rural area and much of the village has been untouched by tourism. To the east side you will find quite a few cafes.
The village displays numerous stone built houses and old churches that have survived the earthquake of 1953. The most important is the church of Agia Paraskevi, that houses fine icons and frescoes. The old windmills that stand on the hill are also a sign from the past. You can also see the 16th century monastery of Agios Georgios. In close distance is the famous Shipwreck, an impressive cove with crystalline waters and soft sand. The Shipwreck Bay can be reached only by boat but there is a spot above Volimes where you can look down at the beach.
