Bewitching scenery and an invigorating climate are the main features of Evritania prefecture. It is the most thickly wooded, best-watered region in Greece. There are so many fir trees in Evritania that you will agree that the nickname "The Switzerland of Greece" has been given with a good reason.

According to Homer, the first known inhabitants of northern Evritania were the Dolopes, who participated in the campaign against Troy. During the Byzantine era, the people of Evritania had the rare privileges of self-government and tax exemption. For this reason the northern part of the district was also called "Agrafa" (Unwritten), because the residents were not listed in the Imperial tax registers. Its mountainous countryside also discouraged the would-be conquerors.

Evritania Today

Karpenissi, capital of the prefecture, is located at the foothills of Mt. Timfristos, at an altitude of 960 meters. It most probably owes its name to the maple trees that abounded in the area in the 12th century (Carpen=maple tree, Carpenis=land of maple trees). The clear atmosphere, the dry healthy climate, the plane trees, fir and chestnut forests make Karpenissi an ideal place for winter and summer holidays.

Among the town's most characteristic features are the workshops that produce handmade brass bells for animals. The tinkling of the bells being tested is a picturesque, melodious welcome.

When eating at a Karpenissi tavern, try the feta cheese roasted in wax paper and the local sausages, and before you leave buy some goat butter and cheese, chestnuts and walnuts. You will also be impressed by the lovely hand-woven fabrics made on traditional looms and the skillfully carved wooden objects on sale in the shops.

Evritania Perfecture

Just 5 km to the southwest of the capital, after one of the most beautiful drives, you come to Korishades, a village of well-preserved stone mansions. Here the Greek National Tourist Organization has recently renovated and opened several traditional homes as guesthouses. Not too far away, the visitor will enjoy some ancient monuments, which have not yet been studied. Many scholars say that this was the ancient capital of Evritania, Oichalia.

The more intrepid will want to venture as far as Agrafa, a remote village encircled by thick spruce forests. If you like fishing, the Agrafiotis river is full of trout. All these mountain villages are "buried" under snow for many months of the year.

Continuing south towards western Frangista, you reach the lake of Kremaston, the largest artificial lake in Greece, and from there to the prefecture of Aitoloakarnania.
