TITHOREA (Municipality) FTHIOTIDA

Local Folklore

  In the area there is a railway station which is considered to be a junction for the region. The train is the basic means of transport and linking with Athens (lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes). It also gives the opportunity to get to the skiing center of Parnassos very quickly.
  Each visitor of Tithorea comes in touch with considerable natural scenes (for example forests, Kahala canyon) and gets impressed by the unique dignity and magnificence of Parnassos.
  He has also the opportunity to see some historical monuments such as the ancient wall with the castle, the traditional watermill, the cave of Odysseus Androutsos, country churches with Byzantine wall painting, archeological findings of roman spa at Modi etc.
  Finally the mountaineering paths of Parnassos which end at Tithorea, offer some physical exercise to those who are willing to walk through them. It is a way to escape a little from the life in cities.
  Visitors can be served at hotels, tourist accommodation and traditional taverns.
  Some religious festivals take place in our Municipality with traditional bands at the name day of Agia Marina 17/7, Agia Paraskevi 27/7, Sotiros Metamorfosis 6/8, Theotokos Kimisis 15/8. There are also carnival festivals and cultural displays run by the Women Club. Something special for this region is the Easter grilling of the lamb in different neighborhoods with 15-20 lambs in each hole.
