Lo que dice el Arxiduc:

“From Zugra, on one side you have Mount Panagiya, which looks like a cut-off cone in the distance, and, on the other side, the double mountain of Djiria and Gymno Vuno. In front of the same is Trikala on a slope with nearly 1,000 homes. Near the top of the town, a great treasure was found not long ago. The entire slope behind has traces of ruins, ashlars or stone blocks turned over or partially aligned in a row. Above the houses is a half-covered ancient fountain, as well as the remains of a wall on the back of the slope. There are banks of limestone above conglomerate. This is what the ashlars were made from. Next to a house in the town is a limestone block with two branches engraved on one side, their leaves pointing upwards; there are more leaves and then the word “Aristoreta” in Greek below.”

“To climb up Mount Panagiya, which is 750 meters tall, you climb up from the beach along a path which passes by Palaeohano Yrys, a Turkish fountain with a small LACHE [¿?] in the wall to the side […]. Approximately half-way we find the Panagiya Tis Koryphis Monastery. In olden times it was located at the top of the mountain, but the monks moved down because of the cold. The government confiscated their land, and that is why everything is abandoned now. Only an old man and his family live there today.”

“The town with its 55 families offers a pleasant and fairly comfortable image. It has a large paved street which heads southwest. The houses are made of stone, and many of them have doors and windows with a wooden jamb or post and rocks held by hooks above. After a climb is the Ayios Ioannis Church. It can be reached by taking a fairly steep path […]. From here is a marvelous view over the gulf with Salona in front and bald Cape Saint Nicolo sticking out. Underneath are gardens with lemon and orange trees. A lot of pomegranates, fig trees and blackberry bushes also grow there. The water from the potamos (“river”) waters the garden. The town also has fresh, precious water from a spring. Good white wine is produced in the surrounding area.”

“Behind this point is the beach at Akrata, with a few houses on the shore. In total there are 14, some with eaves. The houses are made of stones. They are normally used to store the grapes collected during harvest because generally only six people live here.”
