KarpenissiBuilt at an altitude of 1000 metres on the southern slopes of Mt. Timphristos, Karpenissi is the capital and the only urban area of the prefecture of Euritania in the heart of continental Greece. Established around the 11th or 12th century AD, on a location chosen for its mild climate, it is rich with historical tradition, archaeological sites, religious worship and astounding natural beauty. In 1991, Euritania was proclaimed by UNESCO one of the environmentally cleanest regions world-wide and Europe's cleanest, also representing the basis for research since it is considered as having zero pollution rate.

KarpenissiKarpenissi has a Mediterranean climate with frequent rainfall, mild winters and cool summers and it is surrounded by great aquatic richness and vast high-fir and chestnut-tree forests. The aquatic wealth has been reinforced since 1965 with the Kremaston artificial lake that is also Europe's largest earth dam. Firtrees dominate the highest mountain peaks succeeded by oak forests lower down, while Mediterranean vegetation including arbutus and olive trees can be found below 1000 metres. Mountain valleys shaped by the rivers form small cultivatable areas. The rich fauna includes large mammals such as bears, roe deer, wild boars and wolves, while numerous smaller animals are also found here. A wide variety of birds of prey and the Episcopy lake wild trout complete the area's bio-diversity.

KarpenissiOne of the most striking things, immediately captivating all visitors is the traditional architecture of Karpenissi featuring wonderful samples of local masonry with well preserved settlements, restored manor houses, Byzantine churches, school buildings now housing museums and splendid arched bridges. Its picturesque location, the continually developing tourist infrastructure, the large number of museums, churches and monasteries, the local cuisine, and its night-life make Karpenissi a popular starting point for year-round travelers and nature lovers that want to visit the broader region.

KarpenissiThe sky-high mountains of Karpenissi and its thunderous rivers with their refreshing springs are enough temptation for anyone that wants to explore nature and enjoy an uncontaminated environment or even have the experience to interact with it. The perfume of roses and basil in springtime, high-standard facilities and ski lifts in the winter, 4X4 adventures in summer, as well as easy ground access year-round, make the region the ideal destination for vacations in the nature throughout the year.
