Stemnitsa (39 km. from Tripoli) is a lively village thanks in large part to its silversmith school, which maintains a centuries-old tradition and is well worth a visit. During the holiday season, they operate workshops for visitors. There’s also a charming folklore museum in the village, and the Church of Aghios Giorgos in the town square sports murals by Fotis Kontoglou, widely acknowledged as the 20th century’s greatest icon painter.

Stemnitsa, Arcadia (39 km. from Tripoli)

The major advantage of Stemnitsa is its location: the village makes an excellent base for walks in the surrounding area, which includes neighboring Dimitsana with its beautiful neighborhoods and Water Power Museum, and the Gorge of Lousios with its monasteries, which you can reach via the famous hiking route running through the gorge. Weather permitting, why not add rafting on the Lousios River or mountain biking or hiking in Mainalo to your program?
