Monastery of Proussos

The monastery of Proussos is built on a steep rock.
According to the tradition, it was founded in 829 by monks Dionysios and Timotheos, who brought with them the icon of Virgin Mary from Prousa in Asia Minor. However, it is more possible that the monastery was established between the 12th and 14th century. You will find religious icons dating back to the 13th and 16th century as well as a library where many important relics are kept. The Museum of the Proussos Monastery, where old ecclesiastical relics and personal items of Georgios Karaiskakis are kept. You can also see the “steps” of Virgin Mary in "Typoma", geologic formations that look like footprints. According to the tradition, these are the footprints of Virgin Mary when she came from Prousa. You will also have the chance to see the lookout towers (“karaoulia”) of Karaiskakis above the Monastery of Panaghia Prousiotissa, which were built during the Revolution. In Prousos, the “Agathidis’ Library” is also very interesting. The library was founded along with the middle school in 1880.

Saloon thematic park

The Saloon thematic park provides the visitors with activities for all ages in a well organized and secure space, including horse riding, climbing rappel, archery, mountain bike riding as well as little Indian canoe, small train in the woods, trampoline and aerial passage over the little valley of the saloon. Alongside you can find the Saloon bar, a wooden shelter which combines the beauty of the Greek nature and the tradition of the American south under the sounds of Classic Rock, South Rock Country, and Blues. Located 4km away from the town of Karpenisi, the Saloon park can be easily reached through the main road.

Panta Vrexei canyon

One of the most spectacular and beautiful areas of Evritania is the Panta Vrexei Canyon located between the villages Roska and Doliana. The name means "always raining" and is due to the fact that in the gorge the flow of the icy water coming down the steep mountain Kaliakouda is not continuous and compact but decays to a wide range of small and large drops, creating a continuous artificial rain turning the already beautiful landscape into a breathtaking. There are three routes you can choose to reach the canyon, all you have to do is to drive a car (a jeep is recommended) and then to hike into the river (river trekking) to reach the canyon. Try it and you will really be rewarded by the wild beauty of the landscapes you will see!
