Visit the region: Fthiotida
Fthiotida

In the prefecture of Fthiotida the visitor encounters a magnificent mountainous nature (high mountains with fir forests, pinewoods, conifers, planes, national parks, gorges, waterfalls, Alpine lakes, plateaux), but also fertile plains, picturesque villages and archaeological sites. There are historical references on the region of Fthiotida in mythology. As indicated from the archaeological discoveries in a lot of settlements, the region has been inhabited since the neolithic period (6000-2800 BC). The location of the prefecture was of strategic importance, as it constituted the passage from Northern to Southern Greece and vice versa. In Fthiotida the first "Amfiktyonia" was founded, a kind of Union of ancient Greek states. Great cities were founded in the region along the centuries, like Lamia, Ipati, Thermopylae and historical battles took place there, such as: the battle of Thermopylae (480 BC), the battle of Spercheios during the Byzantine times (995 AD), the battle of Alamana (1821).

Dolopia

Vasilis Biskanakis and his Austrian origin wife are two young people who decided to turn to the past, to be inspired by the knowledge and wisdom of previous generations and create products of modern aesthetics. Their deep love and nostalgia for old-fashioned flavours were the reasons for the establishment of Dolopia, a plant producing handmade pasta, mezé, jams and sweets. "Dolopia" products make use of the agricultural production of the wider region and are characterized by the harmonious combination of the traditional with the modern. The result is simply impressive.
