Visit the region: Euritania
Euritania

The dominant mountains, waters, springs and waterfalls, the steep gorges and hillsides, the dense flora and forests consisting of fir, pine and deciduous trees, will definitely catch your eye with their beauty. On the other hand, Euritania is full of traditional villages and historical monasteries. Euritania was named after king Eurytus, who is said to have been a great archer in his time. In the past, the people of Euritania were very famous warriors and were considered to be the most powerful and hard-core people of the area. The rough and difficult-to-reach landscape of this place, probably played an important role in the development of strong and skilful warriors. The people of Euritania fought many times in the past, but also during the Byzantine era, the Turkish occupation and also during the more recent Greek history.

Stremmenos

In 1991 Christos Stremmenos, former ambassador of Greece in Rome and professor of physical chemistry at Bologna University was inspired by the famous cold cuts of Parma. As a result, he decided to set up a small but modern cold cut factory in Proussos village in Evrytania. With the help of his family and with a team of young people trained in Italy's cold cut factories, he managed to produce a prosciutto with a Greek identity, worthy of Italian prosciutto. Prosciutto, salami and other products of natural maturation from this cold cut factory, are strongly characterized by the area they are produced in - the cool mountain breeze, the scent of the many fir and plane trees in the area, along with the constant humidity in the air, throughout the year. The result is a series of products of high culinary value, combining Greek and Italian tradition.
