Macedonia

Information about Macedonia

Macedonia is Greece’s largest geographical region and it occupies the northern part
of the country.
The climate is generally continental though coastal areas benefit from the moderating
influence of the sea and can be said to have a Mediterranean climate.
Macedonia includes large fertile plains, such as the plain of Thessaloniki, mineral
rich areas, such as Halkidiki, wooded mountains, lakes, wetlands, enchanting waterfalls,
forests of fir, pine, and beech trees. Slope inhabited even today by endangered wild
animals such as bears and wolves. Rushing rivers, caves, verdant plains, fertile valleys,
distant lake shores, beautiful coasts, and large and small fishing villages.
The capital is Thessaloniki, the “bride” of the Thermaic gulf, which owes her name to
the daughter of Philip, the king of Macedonia. The city is decorated with many Roman
and Byzantine  monuments, with the White Tower the best known, the old city, and
countless Byzantine churches. Today all of Thessaloniki buzzes with life. The roads,
parks, and squares are lively and on the commercial streets people frequent the shops
with their bright window displays. Old houses, neoclassical and modem. Among them
are tavemas, restaurants, bars, expensive nightclubs and cozy little places redolent with
the smells of Macedonian delicacies. Theatres, cinemas, confectioneries,  and cafes.
And once a year, every September, the wonders of technology are gathered and shown
at the International Exhibition.
Halkidiki lies to the south, as well as Mount Athos (flghion Oros), the monastic state,
the  holy mountain, a separate and  special feature. Dozens of fabulous Byzantine
monasteries lurk in the fertile valleys and perch on sheer rocky coasts hiding unique
treasures. The capital of Halkidiki is Polygyros, a picturesque town. Its unique sights are
its three fingers, the peninsulas of Kassandra, Sitfaonia and Athos, with beautiful sandy
beaches and pine trees that come down to “meet” the deep blue water of the sea.

East of Thessaloniki are the prefectures (districts) of Seires, Drama and Kavala, and
their respective capitals of the same name.
Beautiful and charming, Series has an  acropolis as well as Byzantine walls and
churches. Drama is situated among tobacco fields. Kavala is divided into a new and an
old town, the scenic harbour full of little fishing boats, and the medieval castle. Outside
the city is the archaeological site of Philippi and several wonderful beaches with good
swimming.
Across the sea is Thassos, the island of the Sirens according to mythology. Beautiful
verdant, with splendid beaches, and important antiquities. In the summer, ancient plays
are reenacted in the ancient theatre.
West of Thessaloniki lies Central Macedonia Here the outstanding sights are the
archaeological sights of Dion, Vergina, and Pella.
The prefecture (district) of Pieria whose capital is fair Katerini with the castle of
Platamonas gazing upon the Aegean, has fine wide sandy beaches, the Litohoro on the
foothills of Mount Olympus, the domicile of the gods, and Dion, the pan-Macedonian
sanctuary devoted to the worship of Zeus (Dias).
Veria, with Byzantine churches, is the capital of the prefecture of Imathia which is also
home to Naoussa of much running water and thick vegetation, and to Vergina which is
associated with Ancient fligai, Macedonia’s first capital, and whose tombs have been
attributed to Philip, the king of Macedonia.
Edessa is capital of the prefecture of Pella, which has waterfalls and Ancient Pella.
Next  is KMs Prefecture with the impressively decorated cave, picturesque villages
and towns and the Doirani lake with its rich natural environment.
In Western Macedonia are  the prefectures  of Kozani, with its scenic capital of the
same name, Grevena, with tall wooded mountains and an untamed natural environment,
Kastoria with the lake and pretty town built in the style of an amphitheatre on its shores
and the dozens of fur-making workshops, and lastly, Fiorina with the National Park of the
Prespes Lakes (Mikri Prespa and Megali Prespa) and beautiful traditional villages built
on the slopes of forested mountains.

Trikala

Information about Trikala

Trikala, including the western part of the fertile plain of Thessaly, is a place filled
with pleasant surprises  and gives its visitors  the opportunity  to enjoy wonderful
naturalist, cultural and religious holidays. It is an ideal place for active, adventure and
sports holidays (walking, climbing, skiing, trekking, mountain biking, kayak-conoefng,
etc.) as well for visiting traditional villages, spots of exceptional beauty, historical sites,
and Byzantine churches and monasteries.
On the western edge  of the plain of Thessaly, just as the Pindus range begins to
form, one comes upon a unique phenomenon of nature – 24 perpendicular rocks on
which about 600 years ago Byzantine monks chose to worship God and built Meteora,
their monastic community. How the monasteries were built on the top of these virtually
inaccessible rocks is a subject of fascination for pilgrims and visitors alike.
OTHER PLACES OF INTEREST: Trikala, the  seat of the prefecture. Kalambaka, a
small town, and KastraW,  a traditional village, both built at the foot of the majestic grey
rocks of Meteora. Well worth visiting are PUi, Elati, Pertouli with its skiing centre (alt.
1.200 m.) and the area of Aspropotamos.
METEORA: Here the monasteries are perched  on the top of the Meteora rocks. Their
summits, totally isolated from the rest of the world, were a refuge for many hermits from as
early as the 11th century.  Three hundred years later the first monasteries were founded.
Most of them were built or renovated in the 16* century. Nowadays six are in use:
– Monastery of Aghios Nikolaos Anapafsas  (1500-1537), Tel. 24320-22375,77392, Fax 79138.
– Roussanou Monastery (1545), Tel./Fax 24320 22649.
– Varlaam Monastery (1517-1548), Tel. 24320-22277, Fax 75386.
– Megalo Meteoro (Metamorfossi) (1380-1552), Tel. 24320 22278.
– Aghia Triada Monastery (15th -18* century), Tel. 24320-22220,77123.
– Convent of Aghios Stephanos (1500 – 1798), Tel. 24320-22279, Fax 25100.

Paleo Trikeri Island

Information about Paleo Trikeri Island

(Area: 2.5 sq.km. – Island summit: 109m)
Pateo Tiferi is a small island which lies at the entrance to the Pagasitic Gulf, just
opposite (1 nautical mile) the extreme south-west end of the Pelion peninsula. It consists of
a few olive-covered low hills and a fringe of small beaches and sandy coves with clean sea.
Paleo Trikeri is scenic and ideal for walking, as it is wonderfully free of any traffic, leaving
the island to be explored in perfect peace. On the south coast is the island’s only village and
port of the same name. It is traditional, tiny, but with everything visitors need (a hotel providing
studios & apartments, rooms to let, a few tavemas serving fresh fish, and cafe-bars), and it is
also a favourite anchorage for passing yachts. The island is dominated by the 19th-century
Monastery of Panayia (tel. 24230 55207) which is a 15-rninute stroll from the village.

Magnesia

Information about Magnesia

The Prefecture of Magnesia occupies the east side of Thessaly, encompassing the
peninsula of the same name which ends in cape Ttikeri and encloses the Pagasitic (Paga-
siukos) Gulf in its embrace. Its boundaries extend to the Northern Sporades Islands of
Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonnissos.
The history of this part of Greece is closely bound up with ancient myths and legends.
Magnesia, being among the fairest regions in Greece  and crowned by superb Pelion,
probably owes its name to  the Magnetes  tribe, who led by Magnes -son of Aeolus –
inhabited the area in prehistoric times. Travellers, however, who may find themselves
taken unawares, carried away so much beauty, may find another unscientific derivation of
the word more appropriate, as they find themselves “magnetized” by the place.
Much praised Pelion -the Mount of Centaurs- with its picturesque hamlets; Volos and its
port, which holds out a promise to modem-day Argonauts of travels full of surprises;
gorgeous beaches, some tucked into wind-free coves, some disappearing into the infinite
expanse of the Aegean, are only some of the delights hidden away in this comer of Greece.
Pine trees, oaks, firs, wild olive trees, chestnut trees and a myriad shrubs and plants, cover the
mountains of Magnesia (Mis. Pelion, Tisaion, Orfhris, Mavrovouni), which take up the greater
portion of its surface, endowing it not only with unsurpassed loveliness, but also with wealth.
Magnesia is also renowned for its healthy climate; thanks to the beneficial effect of the
sea surrounding it to the south and east it is blessed with mild winters and cool summers.
Another characteristic of the region that is most pronounced in Pelion is its advanced
social attitude towards culture, which is revealed not only in the preservation of traditional
houses but also in the locals’ effort to revive tradition in their customs and habits as well as
in their arts and crafts.  The high standard of folk art found in the museums as well as in
shops is directly linked with the daily way of life in the region today.

The lavish abundance of natural beauty, the ever-changing landscape, the beauty of the
changing seasons, the ideal geographical position, history, culture, the high quality of
amenities and the many forms of tourism available all year round, are the assets of the
region that make Magnesia such a comprehensive tourist attraction.
Volos, the capital and main port of the prefecture of Magnesia, is a large, modem,
dynamic city, in one of the most attractive areas of Greece, which guarantees to enchant
the  tourist from the first moment. The city is also famed  for its rich  cultural life, for its
archaeological museum and for the important Neolithic settlements at ancient Dimini and
Sesklo (respectively 3km and 15km west of Volos).
Pelion
Mount Pelioris  located on the southernmost tip of Central Greece. It  is the easternmost
mountain of Thessaly, and culminates in a hook-shaped peninsula that almost encloses the
Pagasitic Gulf. Its western slopes face the plain of Thessaly and its eastern slopes the Aegean Sea.
The Pelion region contains rare species of flora and fauna, and endangered habitat
types protected under Community Directives. Because of its importance, the Pelion region
has been listed in the European NATURA 2000.
Pelion’s villages: Most of Pelion’s villages lie on its lush, orchard-covered slopes,
and are among the most beautiful in Greece. They have changed little in appearance
over the centuries,  and delight the visitor  with  their fine old  houses in traditional
architectural style, ornate mansions and churches, cobbled  streets and paths, and
squares shaded by several vast plane-trees which shelter the local cafes  (“kafeneia”).
There are also highly distinctive churches, built in a low, wide style,  often with a slate
roof, a detached bell tower, marble reliefs on the apse, and always ornamented inside
with carved wood.

Karditsa

Information about Karditsa

One of the four Districts of Thessaly, whose  characteristic feature is the beauty
resulting from the contrast between the massif in the south-west and the plain in the
north-eastern part.
There are remains from the neolithic period, from the Hellenistic, Byzantine and late
Byzantine tradition up to the modem times.
Discovering Karditsa is a very pleasant experience. The Karditsa District offers a variety
of alternatives to the visitor, whichever his interests or the purpose of his visit may be.
The mountain chains of both Pindos and Agrafa are a constant and enchanting invitation
to enjoy the authentic nature and calm vacations  in an environment of rich vegetation
(forests with fir, oaks and chestnut trees) and abundant waters.  The Nikolaos Plastiras
Lake is the jewel of the area as well as one of the most beautiful places in Greece.
Visiting the mountainous region of the historic Arghithea with its wild beauty, its
stone built bridges, and its  particular folk songs and dances, is a challenge to live an
unforgettable experience.The region of the Ancient Menelais, where the Smokovo Spa
and the interesting area of Rentina are located, is equally exciting.
Karditsa, the capital of the District, is dominated by the historic Pafsilypon Park.
There are important neoclassical buildings and  a  Town Market. The cultural life is
important all year round. Intense nightlife, tavemas and excellent cuisine are the city’s
particular features.  The  plain  region  is  characterized  by  both   the  important
archaeological sites and a multitude of remarkable churches.

Thessaly

Information about Thessaly

Thessaly, in Greek Thessalia, is the geographical department that occupies the
central section of mainland Greece.
It  is surrounded  by  high mountain ranges encircling a low plain. It borders
Macedonia to the north, Central Greece (Sterea Ellada) to the south, Epirus to the west
and its eastern shoreline is on the Aegean. It has a higher percentage of flatland than any
other district in Greece.
The climate is continental; the winters are cold and the summers hot and temperature
differential between the two seasons are large,
One of the characteristics of the climate of the plain of Thessaly are frequent summer
rainstorms. These frequent rains amplify the  fertility of the plain, often called the
breadbasket of Greece.
The entire plain is surrounded by the mountains Pindus, Othrys, Ossa, and Agrafa;
among them flows the Pinios river which drains into the Aegean, after passing through
the Thessalic Tempi  The district was the home of the ancient gods and of the Centaurs.

Here, in this place among te woods, the gorges, and the picturesque villages,
Meteora reach for the sky. Twenty-four Byzantine monasteries have been clinging to the
tops of the tall grey rock shafts for over six hundred years, challenging and inviting
pilgrims and visitors from all over Greece to this centre of Christianity.
Larissa is the capital of Thessaly: Old mansions with yards and gardens in bloom in
the middle of the plain of Thessaly.
Amid the proud mountains and traditional villages the visitor will find spas, churches,
and antiquities.
Karditsa the capital of the district of Karditsa, is built on the banks of a tributary of the
Pinios river. A modem town with well laid-out streets, it is at the same time especially
picturesque with its traditional villages scattered on the peaks of the Agrafa mountain
range.  Spas  at  Smokovo and Kaista as well  as  many antiquities  and  Byzantine
monuments.
Trikala, built on the site of Homeric Trikki, is crossed by the river Litheos. The rains of
the most ancient sanctuary of Asclepius are here.
Kalambaka. famed for its Byzantine churches, is built where the river Pinios leaves the
Pindus mountains, at the foothills of Meteora.
Nearby the Pagasitic Gulf embraces Pelion. the mythological land of the Centaurs:
imposing and verdant, rough and scenic, wild and accessible. With beech covered
peaks, streams running down the slopes, villages rooted among the chestnut and olive
trees, Pelion is a wonder.
Makrinitsa, Portaria, Milies, Vyzitsa, Tsagarada, Zagora; magnificent large old stone
houses with wall decorations and slate roofs. Beautiful resorts dot the seaside. Votes the
capital and economic centre of the district is located in the Pagasitic Gulf.
Its verdant surroundings are alive with ancient memories; Iolkos (the hide-out of
Jason and the Argonauts), Dimitrias.
To the west are the neolithic settlements of SesWo and Dimini.
Splendid blue waters  lap at beautiful beaches and local specialities complete the
region’s portrait.

Etoloakarnania

Information about Etoloakarnania

Etoloakarnania’s capital, Messolonghi, wrote a heroic page of modem Greek history
when fighters  in the besieged  city broke out of it during  the Greek  War of
Independence (1821-1830). To the east is the third large city of the district, Nafpaktos
which charms visitors with its beautiful Venetian castle and old port.
The road  from here moves into mountainous Nafpaktia, which boasts Greece’s
largest fir tree forest and plenty of tiny villages lost in the woods at altitudes from 700 to
1,000 metres. The little island of Aetoliko is joined the mainland by a multi-arched stone
bridge. Agrinio is to the north of Messolonghi; it is an important production centre with
good tourism infrastructure. The picturesque town of Astakos built around the gulf of
the same name, is a splendid resort. White sand graces the endless beaches at Aghios
Giorgis at Asproghiali and  at Vela, all perfect for quiet and special holidays. The
coastal road  leads to Mytikas and from there opposite to the islets of Kalamos and
Kastos. Further north is Aktio with its Venetian castle, seaside Vonitsa and flmfilohia
situated on the slopes of two hills, looking towards Arta.
Etoloakamania is connected with the Peloponnese by the Rion-Antirion Bridge, a
2,252-metre long 4 pylon cable-stayed bridge

Central Greece

Information about Central Greece

Central Greece is the central region of Greece, and one of the most mountainous. The
climate is dry in the interior and temperate along the coasts. The slopes are forested
with pine, beech and poplar trees. Running water and calm lakes interchange with
uncounted coves and beaches. Hidden shores and picturesque islets adorn the south-
western coasts, The varied landscapes of the region remain beautiful no matter the
season.
• Between the gulfs  of Euboea and Corinth is the first district Boeotia (Viotia), with
picturesque villages, beautiful beaches, mountains, and lots of life.
The capital Levadia built like an amphitheatre up the foothills of Mt. Hehkon, was famous
in antiquity for the oracle of Trophonios Zeus and the two Springs of Forgetfulness
(Lethe) and Memory (Mnemosyne), to the north of town.
Heronia is a village with significant archaeological interest, with the famous statue of the
Lion of Heronia. Green Orhomenos, a town on the plain with lots of running water and
Plataies, famous  as the site where the  Greeks won a fabulous victory against the
Persians, Lefktra and  Tanagra, as well as the wonderful beaches of Distomo at Anttkyra,
Aghios Isidores, Faros and Sarantis.
Arahova is a mountain town hanging on to the Pamassos  slopes, with a intensely
traditional flavour, picturesque houses, and the Byzantine monastery of Ossios Loukas to
the east of it.
Thiva is a modem town built in fertile plain, with archaeological significance (ancient
Thebes) and Byzantine churches.
• Imposing mountains,  beautiful  deserted beaches or cosmopolitan resorts and
mountain villages swamped by plane and acom trees, are to be found in the district of
Fthiotida.
The commercially busy district capital,  Lamia,  is  built  on  the pine-wooded south-
western slopes of Mt. Othrys, close to the river Sperhios.
To the south-east of Lamia is Thermopyies known since antiquity for its spas and the last
stand of three hundred Spartans against a horde.
Further south is Kamena Vourla, among the most popular spas, and the seaside towns of
Aghios Kbnstantinos and Arldtsa. There are special sandy beaches at Livanates.
Atalanti is a commercial and agricultural centre. To the west of it are the wooded areas
Elatia, Tithorea and Amphildia which have archaeoligical interest.
Ypati is built on the slopes of Mt. Iti, among plane, cypress, and oak trees of the Ypati
National Forest. One of Greece’s most important spas, the Loutra Ypatis is located here
as is the Agathonos monastery.
Lost among the trees, the villages of Mt. Iti, such as Pavfiani, shelter from the summer
heat in their shade. In the Sperhios valley Makrakomi is  today a transport hub and a
commercial centre.
Spas at Platystomo, west of Lamia, as well, while to the north Domokos calmly gazes
upon the plain of Thessaly before the road leads to Styilida, to Karavomylos and to the
coasts of Pelasgia and Glyfa.
• Foldda is coloured by the silver-green of olive groves and the gold of tiny beaches.
The picturesque  capital Amfissa is built  among peaks and  crowned by the Frankish
castle, itself surrounded by olive trees.

trees and running water.

Trizona, Aghios Ioanrds and Prassoudi
• The spectacular countryside of Evrytania enchants anyone who approaches it. The
healthy climate, the forested slopes, and the countless streams give the impression of
heaven on Earth.
Karpenissi, the district capital, is built on the foothills of Mt. Tymfristos, at an altitude of
960 metres. Among the plane, fir and chestnut trees, Karpenissi is ideal  for  winter
vacations and an alternative proposal for the summer, when it can be a springboard for
excursions to nearby places, such as Gorgianades, Kefalovrysso and the  traditional
village Koryschades whose stone houses are in good repair.
A small fir tree forest and gardens with apple, cherry and pear trees in Mikro Horio. On
the slope of Kaliakouda, opposite Helidona, is Megalo Horio. Proussos is at an altitude of
800 metres and east of Karpenissi is Krikello close to Kbkbalia a historic location among
the fir trees just before Domrusta itself a village of many chapels located in enchanting
surroundings.
West of Karpenissi are Fragista, Granitsa and Agrafa lovely mountain villages, which
disappear in winter under a thick blanket of snow.

ders with the Corinthian Gulf to the south and the Ionian Sea to the west.
