A visit to Karpenissi (about one hour, 70 km) is something we must do. Beautiful town, graphic villages, easy access, spectacular nature, fantastic ski resort, accommodation of high standard, fantastic food. Karpenisi is a city rich in history, resting lazily in the lap of Velouchi , the ancient Tymfristos at an altitude of 960 meters, lush fir, well protected from the strong winds that whipped the top.
Great personalities of the Greek history came from the wider region of Karpenisi, such as the great palikar Katsantonis, synonym of bravery and selflessness, the member of Society Of Friends (Filiki Etairia) and a fighter of 1821 Thanassis Karpenisiotis, the author of the diachronic masterpiece “The mountains”, the academician and politician Constantine Tsatsos, the politician Pavlos Mpakogiannis and many others.
