GREECE / THESSALY / KARDITSA / MITROPOLI
Mitropoli
Mitropoli, the head of the homonym municipality, is 9 km westwards of Karditsa. As you leave Karditsa, Mitropoli is the first station on the way to Plastira lake.
From Mitropoli you have the opportunity to choose between three different roads to the lake. The first passes through the Hydroelectric station of DEI and Moshato and leads to Tsardaki. The second and oldest of all is very narrow and leads to the south part of Mesenikola. The third and shortest – only 7 km – is very easy and leads to Morfovouni.

Mitropoli is built at the entrance of the ancient pasage that lead from the valley of west Thessaly to the plateau of Nevropolis, where Plastira lake and south Pindos are.
According to historic sources the ancient town flourished during the end of the 3rd and the beginnings of the 2nd BC.
During the Turkish rule reign the town was named Paleokastro. It is said that Turks gave this name to the settlement in 1420. After the liberation of Thessaly in 1881, the region was named Mitropoli once again.
In Lianokokkala location, the excavations brought into light the remains of an ancient temple dedicated to Apollo.

It is worth visiting the Folkloric museum in Portitsa village. There you will see an impressive collection of traditional objects and tools.
It is worth visiting the traditional stone-built bridge joining in together Mitropolis with Moshato, 4 km from the center of Mitropolis.

The residents of Mitropolis work mostly with agriculture and animal husbandry. They cultivate wheat, weed, corn and produce wine and tsipouro in their vineyards.
