Facilities in Mongonisi
To summarise, Moggonissi provides for:
A short distance inland from Loggos, on the east coast of Paxos, Fontana is a tiny village set around a church and a taverna. A plane tree acts as a central roundabout. In Greece, plane trees are considered a good omen, signaling water. Indeed, Fontana stands at the head of a watershed that runs down to Loggos on the east coast.
With its quiet, agricultural atmosphere, Fontana makes a pleasant change from relative hussle and bussle of the other villages. Fontana is sometimes known as Platinos.
There are no places to exchange money here and no real signs of the modern day world which is one of its main attractions. If you haven't got a car, Fontana is only half a hour’s walk from Loggos and twenty minutes back down.
