In the embrace of Acheloos
Nature, history and tradition in harmonious accord.
Agrinio is a known and at the same time «unknown» city. We know it as one of the largest cities in Western Greece, an active financial and commercial centre, a living city. However, a tour of the surrounding area, with the city as your starting point, will come as a pleasant surprise, since it reveals a diverse, stunningly beautiful landscape, archaeological sites and religious monuments of special significance.
A revealing walk
Wandering around the city, you will see vestiges of the past emerging, helping you to piece together its much storied history. The buildings of the tobacco warehouses, samples of industrial architecture from a bygone age, reveal the close connection the area has with tobacco, while the widespread excavation findings exhibited in the Papastrateion Archaeological Museum give ample illustration of the important role the area played in the Aetolian League, the federation of communities and cities of the region in ancient times.
