We are visiting Orini Korinthia and the Lake (reservoir) of Feneos.

It is about 142 km from Athens and 73 km from Patras.



We passed through Stimfalia and Kastania. The place is full of an incredible variety of trees, fir-forests and lush vegetation. The whole area is unique for walking, and horse riding.



I am talking to a local while buying some walnuts an I tell him how amazed I am with this beauty out here, and that the place reminds me of Switzerland. He tells me that this place here is called "the Greek Switzerland" by many people and tourists.




We come to the lake where we get off the coach and walk towards the small church of St. Fanourios.  This reminds me again of another island. The island of Corfu and the popular “Pontikonisi”.



Stimfalia is the place where Hercules exterminated “Stimfalion's hens” back in mythology. In the northern side of the lake there are the ruins of the Citadel of ancient Stimfalia.



Upon reaching the dam we have a marvellous view of lake Doxa, one of the most beautiful in Greece.

We also pass through Trikala Korinthias, located in the hill side of Ziria (Killini) mountain, in an altitude of 900 meters.



I am amazed from the beauty here!

Enjoy the photos I have taken.
