About Archaeology in Lake Karla & Mavrovouni

Both the Mycenaeans and the ancient Greeks boasted a strong presence in the region of Magnesia, and there are still some remains to be seen. About half an hour’s drive from the lake – closer to Volos – are the worthy sites of Sesklo and Dimini. Around the lake itself there are some remains of ancient civilizations, such as at Agios Athanasios, Agios Trifon, and Aleriani (Aeriani) all not far from the village of Kanalia. On the northern tip of the lake lies Palioskala and on the western bank lie some remains on the mound known as Chaltzimiksiotiki Magoula.
