Welcome to Andritsena
The birthplace of Panayotis Anagastopoulos, one of the leaders in the War of Independence, the charming mountain town of Andritsena overlooks the valley of the Alfios River, 65km southeast of Pyrgos. Crumbling stone houses, some with rickety wooden balconies, flank the village’s narrow cobbled streets and a stream bubbles its way through the central square, Plateia Agnostopoulou. Keep an eye out for the fountain emerging from the trunk of a huge plane tree. Andritsena is a handy springboard for visiting the magnificent Temple of Epicurean Apollo, a World Heritage–listed site, located 14km south.
