Mount Skaros that rises above Nikiana is the Homeric «Niion» according to the great German archaeologist Dörpfeld. The forest at the top of the mountain consists of a unique species of oak (rupaki), that reproduces naturally for hundreds of years now and from the beginning became a subject of research for many foreign researchers such as Sprenger from Germany who has recorded the rare fauna of the forest since 1915. The view from the mountain to the surrounding areas is unique and the walk among the ancient trees will reward you.
