A charming, authentic and heroic village with a rich history, still boasting its original beauty.

The visitors, enchanted, will praise the grandeur of Lady Andritsaina, longing until they can be close to her once again.

The village is amphitheatrically built, in the shadow of Mount Lykaion and at an altitude of 750 metres, in a verdant landscape, near the borders of Ilia and Arcadia. She has the confidence of a woman aware of her power and wields her beauty without pomp. She maintains the simple garb of ancestral mountain villages.

Stone-built and majestic, Andritsaina bears the marks of conquerors, looters, wars and revolutions before becoming a remarkable commercial and cultural centre and maintaining nowadays robust tourist infrastructure.

The region of Andritsaina is also home to two beautiful mythical rivers, Alpheus and Neda.

Visitors, wandering on cobbled streets, can admire imposing mansions.

Look for the village trademark, “Trani Vrysi” with its 4 stone fountains, which is the oldest in the Peloponnese built in 1724.

Visit the prided Folklore Museum, which is housed in a building from 1847 and includes approximately 4,000 exhibits.

Stop by the Nikolopoulios Library, where you will find rare manuscripts and publications from the 15th century as well as documents of the highest historical importance related to the French and Greek revolutions.

Savour a cup of coffee under the imposing plane tree on the village square.
