Menites - Andros (Greece)

Menites. Menites is a cute village in the center on the Greek island of Andros. It lies at the foot of the mountain Petalos. It is especially known for its many water sources and the green area with many large plane trees. Menites, which is located about six kilometers (3.5 mi) from the capital of Chora, has about 150 inhabitants. It is about 200 meters (650 ft) above sea level.

According to the legend, in ancient times wine flowed from the statue of lions' heads. These days, water flows. According to tradition, wine festivals, called “Dionysus parties,”were held here. These were feasts with an abundance of wine. Hence the lion heads where called "the sources of Dionysos."
