The Mountain Nafpaktia resort
The horizon of the gulf is hemmed in by a chain of peaks that lead
into the seemingly endless range of the Roumeli mountains. Before heading towards
the better-known mountains of Aitolia
and Akarnania, it is worth pausing to explore the labyrinth of peaks and mountain
valleys of Nafpactia, an area known as Kravvara. Here, sharp peaks rise dramatically
above sheer slopes and the visitor will be amazed to find endless rows of cultivated
terraces in this inhospitable terrain. This labour of thousands of people over
the centuries has not only allowed them to survive in a barren environment, but
has enriched the natural variety of plant and wild life in the area. In the region
of Ano Hora,
a traditional village in east Kravvara, a network of paths has been recently restored
and marked that connects it with Kato
Dimitrio and Krioneria,
Podo, and Ambelakiotissa.
