Itinerary

Our tour starts from Ancient Plevrona. There our visitors, will have the opportunity to come face to face with the wild beauty the place offers. Ancient Plevrona has proved its existence and development during the Mycenaean period. It had taken part in the war of Troy, sending 40 ships. The old town was destroyed in 233 B.C by Demetrius II and was rebuild in the new area that is open to public. In this impressive archaeological site you will have the chance to see a huge, natural 6-meters tall stone tank, part of the market, the ancient road and a wonderful ancient theatre with the great panoramic view of the sea on west of Messolonghi. A special characteristic of the theatre is the fact that it is built next to the wall and uses a tower for its needs.

Ancient Oiniades was a port town on the west bank of the river Achelous. The town was characterized as one of the most important of Ancient Acarnania(it is now known as Aitoloacarnania). It was an important port on the route to Corfu. It changed its alliances repeatedly in the course of history; at first it was a member of the Peloponnesian League, but in 424 BC it was incorporated in the Delian League. In the Hellenistic period, Oiniades allied with the Aetolians until 218 BC when Philip V declared it free. From 211-189 BC during the Roman-Macedonian wars the city was again under Aetolian control. In Roman times it lost its strategic importance. However it was still inhabited in the 3rd century AD judging from coin finds.

Above Lake Ozero or Galitzas, on a hill lying to the east of the hill where the ruins of the Ancient Fortress of the divers are preserved, the monastery of Ligovitsi is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Its external form is fortuitous. In the center is placed the Katholikon belonging to the type of the three-aisled inscribed cruciform with a dome. The three aisles are housed under a common pitched roof, interrupted by another transverse. At the meeting point of the crosses of the Cross, an octagonal dome rises. Along the sides of the wall there is built a number of cells with a hollow roof. The front of the semicircular tower on the northeastern wall of the Catholic, the wall is marked by the date 1737, which proves the rich history of the monastery.

We are going to visit the town of Messolongion and its castle. There, you'll be able to learn about the heroic Exodus of Messolonghi against Ottomans that costs the lives of many Greeks but it remained a reference point for the subsequent struggle for independence.
