KASTANOHORI
At an altitude of 750 metres above sea level, Kastanohori ('chestnut village') is situated on a mountainous slope cloaked in chestnut forests. It can be reached on a newly upgraded road linking mountain communities north of the Neda river to Megalopolis via Thoknia.
     Formerly known as Krampovos, it is suffering from de-population. Since WWII its young people have emigrated abroad or to the major urban areas of Athens or Thessaloniki. Some do return to their ancestral homes to retire and, in doing so, help to improve the housing stock and keep local traditions alive.
