Mikrolimni is a small riparian village, with a long fishing tradition.
At the entrance of the village stands the large stone church of Ayios Athanassios,
dating from 1908. By walking carefully along the wet meadows next to the reed
beds, or from the observation tower nearby, in the north of the village, one can
see and fhotograph the rare herons that feed in the shallow waters on frogs, snakes,
fish, insects ahd other aquatic organisms. Please keep distant from the animals
to avoid disturbing them. Setting off on foot from Mikrolimni and following a
path to the south, the visitor can reach the fabulous bay of Latsista with its
amazing view of the lake and aquatic birds. The building next to the path is the
Elliniki Etairia's Biological Station, used by scientists working in the area
in the past. After a nice walk the visitor can enjoy fresh fish at the local tavernas
near the lake.
