          Presentation
This land pairs the mountain range of Agrafa and the Thessalian plain. For the lovers of peacefulness, an ideal choice is the lake of Plastira that at the same time offers numerous options for sport activities, such as mountaineering, cycling and hiking.
For adventure lovers, we recommend the mountain range of Argithea that is traversed by the river Acheloos creating landscapes of wild beauty. The land of the Athamanoi has always constituted a close-knit society of unique cultural traits.
In the locality of Smokovo, the visitor will come across the homonymous spa, the lake and the settlement of Rentina. The landscape will compensate you with its rich vegetation. The whole of the Prefecture holds many surprises for its visitors!
          History
Human presence in the area dates back to 6000 BC. Contemporary Karditsa had been part of the ancient Thessaliotida where a primal form of alliance between neighbouring areas had been established. Homer makes a reference to the area in relation to their contribution to the Trojan War.
During the Byzantine era, Karditsa was consequently conquered by Slavs, Blachs and Catalans. The area of Agrafa Mountains and their famed schools were the cradle of Hellenism during the Ottoman Rule. Karditsa was liberated in 1881.
