The road continues beyond the church and climbs up out of the valley. On the mountainside is a cave with a small church, called Agios Mamas, inside it. On the feast day of the church, boiled meat is eaten. It is thought that this custom is a direct descendant from the animal sacrifice of the ancient god Pan. Evidence of animal sacrifice have been found in the cave.
