Monumental Rock - «Kouloures» area, Metohi Hatzitraganou, Glossa.

Huge rock, characteristic of a large number of similar rocks to be found at the northern part of the area, at a 150-200 m radius, and are thought to be the result of a river that used to cross the area, at an age unknown to us. Close to the rock there is an old stone path, as well as monumental olive trees.
