Welcome to Karpenisi
Karpenisi, the capital of the mountainous prefecture of Evritania, occupies a dramatic setting in the well-wooded foothills of Mt Velouchi (2315m; labelled as Mt Tymfristos on some maps) between Lamia and Lake Kremasta. While not attractive in itself, it lies at the heart of an appealing alpine-flavoured region known as the ‘Switzerland of Greece’. Lovely walks are dotted throughout the area, while driving to reach steep villages and monasteries through the surrounding forests of fir and chestnut can be equally rewarding.
