Photographer's Note

One of the most remarkable natural treasures of Achaia.

The village of Vlasia, is a popular tourist destination throughout the year, as it is famous for its healthy and cool climate. The area is suitable for trekking and climbing, as it is sarrounded by mountains and trekking paths. The landscape that visitors see as they reach the village of Vlasia is breath-taking. Ano and Kato Vlasia are built amphitheatrically on the slopes of the mountain. In Vlasia you can see old traditional-yet restored, stoned buildings, which in combination with the mountain scenery offers visitors a beautiful and peaceful atmosphere. Near village there is the Monastery of St. Nicholas and the archaeological site of Ancient Leontio. The river of Selinountas in front of the village, is an additional beautiful touch to the whole scenery. A walk to the nearby waterfall of St. Taxiarchis is an excellent idea.
I hope you enjoy Vlassia's waterfall when you go some day its only 50xlm. from Patras and 220 from Athens.
