THOKNIA
Surrounded by open-pit lignite mines, Thoknia is a village about seven miles from Megalopolis. It is situated near the confluence of the Alpheios and Helisson rivers and is named after the ancient Arcadian city Thocnia.
     On the northern outskirts of the village are two adjacent churches: one, a large concrete rendered building flanked by a separate bell tower; the other, a small single nave church with a semi-circular sanctuary. As the information outside explains, this charming C18 chapel has been lovingly restored.
     The other thing that will catch your eye is the traditionally painted taverna.
