Around 6 miles (10 kilometers) to the west of Xylokastro-Evrostina is Aigialeia, a regional center home to Tsivlou Lake, Panagia Tripiti Church and Diakofto Train Monument. If you still have time left, be sure to check out Nikolaiika Beach and Vouraikos Gorge before you return to Xylokastro-Evrostina.
