At a short distance from Edessa, Lake Agra-Nisiou-Vritton is situated. The
lake was artificially created during the 50s to cover the needs in water of a
small hydroelectric power plant of the Public Electricity Board, but rapidly developed
into an area with particular ecological interest, since it hosts and supports
a great number of bird species. The wet meadows, the aquatic vegetation and the
water create in the area of springs a unique natural scenery, while the agricultural
landscape is dominated by apple and cherry cultivations, which gives rise to the
organization of local festivities and fairs.
