Rodopi's Eastern part features isolated mountainous settlements, the largest old stone bridge in Eastern Macedonia and Thrace, Mt. Papikio - a byzantine monastic center and an oasis of beautiful nature. The highest peak here reaches 1483m. The famous Thracean Meteora Rocks stand to the west of Mountain Papikio. Very close to these rocks flows the river Kompsatos, a protected bird's habitat.
