Panoramic view of Plastira Lake
The famed Lake Plastira lake, the lake for all seasons, is situated in the Thessaly region. The lake is named after Nikolaos Plastiras, a former Prime Minister of Greece, and lies some 30 km west of Karditsa town. To be precise the lake is actually artificial, a reservoir created after the building of an immense arch-shaped dam which stands some 83 m high and measures some 200 m in length.
Lake Plastira is situated in the Agrafa Mountains and is a jewel in the crown, not only of the Prefecture of Karditsa, but also all of Greece. All villages surrounding the lake, such as Neohori, Mesenikolas, Morfovouni, Kerasia, Kalyvia Pezoula, Neraida, Belokomitis, Kastania, Lambero, and many others, are truly charming.
