The lava dome of the volcano Profitis Ilias adjoins directly to the eruption of Rethi volcano. He's probably the same age. The summit of this volcano was home to a medieval sanctuary, where the inhabitants retreated against the pirate raids. Therefore, the other name is also "Kastelli" = "castle". It is easy to get on a trail to this summit, because there is also the small chapel Profitis Ilias.
