Project Description

Plastiras Lake

Plastiras Lake is a beautiful artificial lake embraced by mountains as well as firs, oaks and chestnut trees that descend to the banks. The mountain tops to the west form the profile of a sleeping woman, the famous “Sleeping” of Agrafa, which is distinguished by much of the Thessalian plain. In the area of ​​Plastira Lake, carved on the rock, is located the monastery of Panagia Pelekiti, a unique monument of the 16th century. The wood-carved icon screen, frescoes, sacred gospels, manuscripts and utensils are a true religious heritage museum. The Corona Monastery is adorned with well-preserved frescoes with many elements of the Cretan school. Here is the honest cart of St. Seraphim.
