Diavologefyro
 

Devil's bridge (Diavologefyro) is a rugged area of wild beauty located close to the village of Trizina. It is a small natural bridge created out of two huge stones that unite the sides of the gorge underneath it. It is a beautiful ravine with verdant vegetation, agelong trees and platanus.

It runs summer and winter water, but you can still end the year on the rocky ground running. It is a beautiful piece of nature.

After crossing the bridge, follow the footpath to a natural clearing. From there, several paths lead further into the gorge where small ponds, cascades, butterflies, toads, and other small wildlife conjure a fairytale setting.

A local lore, dating back to Ottoman rule states that the bridge was named like that because the bridgemaker sold his soul to the devil in order to execute the pasha’s orders to construct the crossing. But the bridgemaker was unable to enjoy the riches from having completed the task as the devil soon after claimed his soul and sowed great destruction on his family.

Another local lore derives from the hoof marks on the bridge. These were said to be made by Pan, the flute-playing god of the wild whose body was half-goat like that of the satyrs. These hoof marks also resemples the marks of the mythical flying horse Pegasus and thats the reason the local names the water running below "Ipokrini" (Horse sping of water).

Diavologefyro is reached via a rough track from the village of Trizina that ends in a small clearing framed by olive trees, this is as far as you can travel by car. A footpath leads further inland through a small gorge to “the devil’s bridge”. On the road to the bridge you can turn to the excavation of the ancient Troizen, the birthplace of the legendary hero Theseus and background of the myth of Hippolytus and Phaedra, wife of Theseus.
