Close to Katastari is the 17th century monastery of Agios Ioannis Prodromos, from this point you get superb views to Alykes. One of teh closest villages is Pigadakia, you can also reach on foot. There is also a folklore museum with an interesting collection of things, like silver plates, embroidery, sewing machines, traditional furniture and agricultural tools. Source: grekka
