AMPHILOCHIA

Amfilochia is in a distance of 314 kilometers from Athens, and it is a key road point of west Greece. Those who travel from south and central Greece to Epirus, Lefkada and Corfu pass from there. The town of Amfilochia is amphitheatrically built between two hills in the creek of Amvrakikos Gulf. A small but beautiful town also known as the Bride of Amvrakikos, and the capital of Valtos.



The first thing anyone notices, is the architectural style of the town. Amfilochia is amphitheatrically built between two hills in the creek of Amvrakikos Gulf and embraced by a small coppice. It has a lot of narrow and picturesque streets that travel the visitor to old times as he walks amongst buildings that have been standing there for over 100 years. Hewn stone and roof tiles dominate the neighbourhoods of Amfilochia. Wherever you look, you will enjoy the magnificent scenery of the blue sea and the lush nature.
During the Ottoman period it was known as Karvasaras, a name that originated from the turkish words "Caravan – Serai" which means caraven station, while only on 1908 it was named Amfilochia. The ancient acropolis of Limnea is worth visiting, in the southeast side of the town, and in a distance of only 2 kilometers from the centre.
