On the way from Agios Achilios to Pili, an Information Centre has
permanent exhibitions about Birds and the Lakes, including Fish and Fishing. Southwest
from the village of Pili, the visitor will find the ruins of a church dedicated
to Agios Nikolaos, standing among the fields of beans and clovers and the wild
lakeside plants. This church has many interesting architectural and decorative
singularities, and there are many discussions on its dating (12th - 14th c ).
After about an hour's walk from Pili to the south, the visitor will
arrive at the deserted village of Dasseri. The stone building at the highest part
of the village, near the dirt road, used to be the school before its desertion
in the civil war. The visitor also enjoys the beautiful view of the lake, the
oak tree forests next to the reed beds and flooded green meadows. At the west
of Pili, there is the "cave of Zachariades", used as the partisans? headquarters
during the civil war.
