Karpenissi: driving to west of Lamia you will find Karpenisi, capital of the prefecture of Evritania; it is located at the foothills of Mt. Timfristos, at an altitude of 960 metres. The clear atmosphere, the dry healthy climate, the plane trees, fir and chestnut forests make Karpenissi an ideal place for winter and summer holidays. The town of Karpenisi, as well as the near by villages (Mikro Horio, Megalo Horio, Koryshades) will really compensate your traveling interest with the picturesque looks. After a drive through trees alongside the Trikerioti river, you arrive at the stately monastery of the Virgin Proussiotissa which possesses a miracle - working icon said to have been painted by St. Lucas. The monastery church was built in 1754 and is full of remakable icons, wood carvings, sacred treasures and silver utensils. There is also a small museum in the monastery containing some personal mementoes of Karaiskakis, hero of the Greek Revolution of 1821.
