Macherado is an unspoiled hamlet filled with authentic Greek tradition and natural beauty, amid the lush vegetation of this central town lies the Agia Mavra Church. Destroyed by a fire in 2006, this anchor of local culture was recently restored to its original Venetian glory. Sightseers will also be pleased to find themselves close to the Monastery of Eleftherotria.
