AKRATA (Small town) ACHAIA

Akrata Community

  The beautiful town of Akrata, built on the coastline and offering azure blue seawater views, wonderful beaches, and modern tourist services, will deeply affect those who desire to combine relaxation and adventure during their holidays.
  Akrata, as well as the picturesque beaches of the surrounding villages of Trapeza, Platanos, and Egira attract a large number of vacationers during the summer months.
  The remains of Ancient Egira, the famous ancient theatre, as well as traces of the ancient city of Aeges, which was destroyed around 281 B.C.
  The post-Byzantine Monastery of Agia Triada is built in the suburbs of Akrata, a lovely and hospitable place. About 20 kms. away from the town the visitor meets Seliana, where traces of ancient Felloi mentioned by Pausanias in "Ahaika" have been discovered. The post-Byzantine Monastery of Agioi Apostoloi and the State Game Sanctuary belong to Perithori, about 4 kms. southern of Seliana.
  Rahova, close to Perithori, is the place where the "Greek School", one of the first ones established in Greece after liberation from the Turks, operated from 1829 to 1837. This is the place where many historical personalities of the 1821 Revolution, as well as distinguished clergymen, such as the Patriarchs of Jerusalem Dositheos and Chrysanthos, were acclaimed.
  The mountainous areas southern of Akrata are of particular tourist interest, as they offer o delightful view over the Limni tou Tsivlou and the other scenic and historically important Kloukinokhoria (villages), such as Agridi, Messorouggi, Peristera, Solos, Zarouchla etc. These villages scattered in dense fir forests, keep the folk tradition vivid and alive.
  The Byzantine church of Panagia stands in Zarouchla, whereas on the slopes of Khelmos the visitor finds the popular Spring of Golfo taken from Sryros Perisiadis’ play under the same name. Peresiadis’ mansion still stands in Messorouggi where the church of Agios Georgios with the wooden hand carved temple is located. Argyriadis’ tower in Agia Varvara and the house of chieftain Theocharopoulos compose two of the most significant historical points of reference to the mountainous cluster of villages known as Kloukinohoria.
  After a three-hour walk past Solos village one reaches the mythically eternal Waters of the Styx, by which, in Greek mythology, the Gods of Olympus swore solemnly. Thetis is said to have bathed her son Achilles in the Waters of the Styx and thereafter he became invulnerable. The visitor can walk from Styx direct to Mega Spileo crossing through the wonderfully steep slopes of Khelmos.

EGHIO (Town) ACHAIA

Eghion Community

  Aegio is the second largest city of Achaia. It is built amphitheatrically on the western coast of the Bay of Corinth. It is a commercial and industrial place and it has been referred to as one of the most significant exporting ports of raisins and citrus ever since 1340 A.D.
  Aegio, the capital of the province of Aegialia, has known long periods of flourishing becoming the starting point of historical events of definitive importance. Going back to prehistoric times it is referred to as the capital of the Achaean Confederation. It is assumed that the Achaeans set off from there for their expedition to Troy.
  The famous church of Panagia Trypiti is located on the waterfront, whereas the Monastery of Taxiarckhes is very close to Aegio. Historical and artistic treasures of immense importance are kept in the Museum of the Monastery. Across the valley on the right bank of the River Selinous is built the Convent of Pepelenitsa, erected in the 15th century.
  Beautiful neoclassical buildings impress a distinguished view of the city on the visitor. Some of these are rare works of art constructed to the design of Ernst Ziller (the Holy Metropolis of Aegio, the Palaia Agora etc.). In Psila Alonia, the central square of Aegio, a tourist will not only enjoy a panoramic view over the azure blue water of the Bay of Corinth and the shoreline of Sterea Ellas across the other side, but one will experience the vigorous pace of a live city that does not forget its tradition. Ancient Helike was founded eastern of Aegio. It was an important religious and cultural centre in antiquity, sunk in the Bay of Corinth in 373 B.C.
  Fteri (set in an altitude of 1150 m. against the backdrop of the unique beauty of a popular fir forest), Loggos, Selianitika, Lambiri, and other coastal villages with exceptional beaches and cosmopolitan atmosphere, are all located within a short distance from Aegio.
  The famous cogwheel train starting from Diakopto, east of Aegio, terminates in Kalavryta following the spectacular canyon of the River Vouraikos.
  At this point continues E4, the European Trail of Long Distances, one of the most important walking courses in Europe, which can be covered any time throughout the year, thanks to the mild climate of the area.

KALAVRYTA (Small town) ACHAIA

Kalavryta Community

  Kalavryta, the capital of the province of Kalavryta, is a town that actually belongs to all Greeks, despite the fact that geographically it belongs to Achaia. It is the city-symbol of freedom.
  The Greek Revolution against Turkish domination started in Kalavryta in 1821. The Banner of the 1821 Revolution is kept at the historical Monastery of Agia Lavra. The Holy Monastery of Mega Spileo, the most amazing shrine of the Eastern Orthodox Church in Peloponnesus, lies not far from Kalavryta. The Monastery, built 924 m. above the sea level in 326 A.D. has been destroyed four times. Nonetheless, the Holy Icon of Theotokos, which according to the tradition is ascribed to Luke the Evangelist, has always been saved.
  During World War II Kalavryta became a target of the German occupation forces. In 1943 all the male population of the town was executed by the Germans who in turn burnt all the houses and churches. A huge cross stands as a memorial of the massacre of Kalavryta on a hill above the tormented town.
  In our days Kalavryta is a picturesque town that serves as a starting point in touring the surrounding areas. The cogwheel train coming from Diakopto terminates at this point.
  At Kalavryta Ski Centre winter sports fan are offered one of the best ski runs in Greece, whereas the wonderful Spileo ton Limnon, a rare work of nature, is only situated 17 kms away from the town. This is the only cave in the world where ponds are layered on three separate levels.
  The visitor of the Kalavryta Metropolitan area is given the opportunity to admire historical and archeological sites as Ancient Loussi, Pausania’s vine-branch, the ancient town of Klitoras, the Castle of Oria, the Chelonospilia, as well as places of extraordinary natural beauty as the springs of the rivers Ladonas and Aroanios.
  All around Kalavryta, scattered on the slopes of Chelmos and Erymanthos, there are 75 villages, most of them built in forests of pine and plane trees.
  Dafni and Klitoria are two of the most picturesque small towns of Achaia with cultural and commercial activities but even natural beauties.
  The whole province of Kalavryta - from Tripotama to Livardzi and up to the town of Kalavryta - with its abruptly changing landscape, its idyllic spots, the characteristic architectural style, and the developing tourist structure constitutes an area that will attract even the most demanding of the visitors.

KATO ACHAIA (Small town) PATRA

Kato Achaia Community

  Western Achaia is one of the most beautiful parts of the Greek land. The visitor will be stunned by the sudden scenery changes, the exquisite sandy beaches, as well as the popular resorts on the slopes of Erymanthos and Panahaikos.
  Kato Achaia is the most important commercial and intellectual centre of the area. According to historians, in antiquity this must have been the territory of the city of Dyme, a member of the Achaean Confederation. Its residents had participated in all national contests and they had developed a remarkable civilization while keeping the name of Achaia, which, according to Homer, was the first name of Greece.
  Araxos airport, which is the only place in Achaia where an airplane can land on is not far from Kato Achaia. Metohi with a wonderful Museum of Natural History is also nearby.
  The golden beach of Kalogria, an endless sandy beach with sky blue water and an exotic atmosphere, together with the pine forest of Strofylia, composes and idyllic landscape famous all round Europe.
  Pappas pond and the wetland of Prokopou consist a rare ecosystem of unique beauty and great scientific interest. It is here where Teichos Dymaeon, as well as many archaeological ruins, lie.
  Along the coastal strip starting southwest of Patras and extending down to the western border of the Prefecture we meet on the waterfront many scenic villages with significant tourist services. Such villages are Vrahnaika, Kato Alissos, Niforeika, Lakopetra, Alikes, a fishermen’s village and a Commune of the Municipality of Kato Achaia is not far form there either.
  In the interior of Western Achaia, in the area of Chalandritsa, the excavations of 1928 brought into light burial grounds of the Mycenaean era. Similar remains were discovered in the Community of Portes in 1995.
  Katarrachtis, Demesticha, and Leontio (where the ruins of an ancient city and a theatre of the 4th B.C. century are exposed) are three of the most picturesque villages in the area, and so is Michas, which is set 1,100 m. above sea level. The whole are is situated right on the site of ancient Tritaea, offers very good tourist services, as well as an amazing view. The surrounding area of Fares is equally remarkable for its traditional communes and the obvious traces back to the time of Frankish rule. In Skiada the ancient Tower of a Byzantine general, Doxapatri, has escaped destruction, whereas further south lie the scanty ruins of the castle of Paleologos. Sandameri is the favourite area of parachutists who organize games of perpendicular and vertical free-falling.
  Last but not least, the monasterial cluster of Movri foothills (Agios Nikolaos Spata, Batha, Maritsa, and Filokali), which attract a large number of visitors, also belong to Western Achaia.
