Guide to Preveza

The Preveza region is surrounded by sea. To the east it is bordered by the Ambracian wetlands and to the west by the azure waters of the Ionian Sea. The blue of the sea harmoniously complements a verdant green landscape. Beautiful forests, majestic canyons and lakes of exceptional natural beauty frame the ecosystem of the area.

The coastline is more than 60 km long with pristine clean beaches, many of which have been awarded the ‘Blue Flag’ eco-label. Enjoy the sea, the sun, swimming and water sports.

Dine out on the freshest of fresh fish and seafood, fished directly from the Ionian Sea and the Ambracian Gulf. Famous specialties include ‘kefalos petali’ (butterflied and barbecued grey mullet) and smoked eel. ‘Avgotaracho’ (bottarga fish roe), prepared the old traditional way, is an exceptionally good meze. The region also produces an abundance of fruit and vegetables, especially citrus fruit, as well as olive oil, olives, herbs, honey and aromatic plants.

In this singular geographical area with its wonderful natural environment, human presence and activity have left their mark over the years in multiple ways. History, tradition, local cuisine, culture, picturesque taverns, bars, fun and joy in a safe environment are the components of an authentic lifestyle that the ever-hospitable people of Preveza invite you to enjoy. Together, these elements set the scene for a very attractive destination no matter what the season.

Castle of Rogoi, Assumption of the Theotokos

The Castle of Rogoi rises on a hill in the area between Nea Kerasounta and Petra. It was built on the ruins of the ancient city of Bouchetion which was a colony of the Eleans.

Within the walls of the early Christian Nicopolis, four basilicas have been identified and partially excavated.

Its construction and decoration were overseen by archbishops Doumetios A and B, according to the inscriptions found on the mosaics of the floor.

Odeon of Nicopolis

It is a true architectural masterpiece, by some unknown but great architect. It lies in the center of the city, on the western side of the wall, adjacent to the Roman agora. It was used for lectures, literary and musical contests and theatrical performances during the Nea Aktia religious games honouring Apollo.

Monument of August

This is the monument – a trophy of the battle of Actium, which was erected by Octavian Augustus to commemorate his victory over Antony and Cleopatra. Built in 28 BC over the hill of Michalitsi, in a position with a panoramic view, it towers over the archaeological site. The sources mention that Octavian had set up his headquarters there on the eve of the maritime confrontation.

New Archaeological Museum of Nicopolis

The building of the new museum is located at the entrance of the town of Preveza. The museum exhibition is exclusively based on the findings of the archaeological site of Nicopolis and not on the collection of a large area, which largely determines the central idea. Therefore, one of the primary factors is the connection of the Exhibition and the Museum with the archaeological site of Nicopolis.

Cassope

Built on a spacious plateau, on the southern slopes of Zaloggo mountain range, in a naturally fortified and strategic position, it is the balcony of the prefecture of Preveza. It offers a unique view over the Ionian Sea, Amvrakikos Gulf, the island of Lefkada and the Acarnanian coast. Cassope was built in 340 BC but it flourished after the late 3rd century BC. At that time, its population ranged between 8,000 to 10,000 inhabitants.

The most famous nekromanteio (oracle of the dead) of the ancient Greek world lies near the shores of the Acherousian Lake, where Acheron and Kokkytos, the rivers of Hades, meet.

Roman aqueduct of Nikopolis

The aqueduct, 50 km. long, carried the water from the springs of Louros to two cisterns in the Nymphaeum of Nikopolis. It actually consists of three parts, each constucted in a different manner: - a channel with a vaulted, water-proof roof and ventilation shafts - a tunnel quarried out in the Kokkinopelos valley and

Orraon (Horreum)

The settlement was destroyed by the Romans in 167 B.C., was subsequently rebuilt and was finally abandoned by its inhabitants who were obliged to settle in Nicopolis, a city founded by Augustus after his victory in the battle of Actium, in 31 B.C.

Monastery of Agios Dimitrios

It is located near the bank of Kokytos river, a tributary of Acheron river, at the village of Kypseli. The katholikon was built by the Despot of Epirus, Michael II Doukas, in 1242, as evidenced by a brick inscription on the drum of the southern window of the transverse arch.
