Photographer's Note

(a stick of two shots)
Kalavrita is a town, a province and a municipality in the East Central part of the prefecture of Achaea. It is located 77 km SE of Patras (1.5 h driving through magnificent and eye-catching nature) and 180 km West of Athens. Kalavrita is a popular tourist destination and can be visited throughout the year.
Some of the essential points of interest are the Ski Resort (situated just outside Kalavrita), the Vouraikos Canyon which can be approached through the "Odontotos" (a rare example of a fully functional cog railway, offering breath-taking view), the Cave of the Lakes (close to the village Kastria of the Municipality of Klitoria, where the natural beauty of the lakes and the stalactitic decor attracts a great number of visitors; a must-see for the lower of geology, petrology, anthropology and paleontology), the historic monasteries as well as the beautiful mountainvillages of the region.
