Piniada – ancient Atrax
Down by River Pineios, we find signs of the ancient city of Atrax in Pineiada in the Municipality of Farkadona. Memories found along the shore are still here, reminding us of the civilization that once flourished in four locations and leaving behind signs of worship of the Gods Apollo, Poseidon, Artemis, and Earth. Atrax, son of Pineios, built a whole city in the foundation laid by the water giant of Thessaly and managed to follow his own great path in the region, developing trade and building castles, parts of which are still preserved. These are monuments of Doric style that make the route along River Pineios ever more beautiful.
