This is a lovely small village, with ancient buildings, narrow roads and the traditional kafenion, giving to the visitor the impression that time has stopped.
Whilst in Keri a visit to the Monastery must not be missed, as well as a visit to the lighthouse place, where from someone can admire the amazing landscapes views and the memorable sunsets.
