Visited the site in July 2014 - this is an amazing place combining natural beauty, architectural monuments and Christian history. The path goes from Gouverneto Monastery (which is under reconstruction at the moment, but you can see its yard when the monastery is open) and down the hill. Halfway you see the White Bear Cave (a small ruined chapel built next to a cave). You can ring the bell there. Continue down and you will finally reach the Katholiko Monastery - there is an ancient bridge, a chapel built in the hill, remains of some buildings and a path leading to the sea or to remains of some buildings on the other side of the gorge. You can also see some caves on the side of the mountain, which most probably were used by monks earlier, but they are really very hard to reach (unless you are a professional hiker or you have very good shoes :)) The atmosphere there is really fantastic. We did not take the path down to the lagoon, but went the opposite way, in an attempt (a failed attempt I must say) to reach some other buildings on the side of the hill, which you can see from the Gouverneto hill. Unfortunately, we started out pretty late and had some kids with us, so we only went halfway. The nature in the gorge is fantastic, goats walking along, cicadas singing. Take plenty of water with you.
