#151 Bridge at the stream of Chatzigiannis


It is an arch bridge located in Athamanio and spans the stream Chatzigianni. Built in 1910 with exceptional technique, to facilitate the transportation of the region. The important thing is that the utilitarian value remains constant until the present day. However, we could not say the same for its aesthetics, as the bridge almost indistinguishable from the greens that have gird.

Equally impressive is the climb to Analipsi church (1200 m.) and the top Strogoula (2112 m.) from the settlement Agnanta.
