Fourteen kilometres from Karditsa at an altitude of 350 metres, the picturesque village of Kanalia on the foothills of the Agrafa Mountains is home to the Church of the Assumption of the Holy Virgin with a domed basilica, built in 1894. The Chapel of Profitis Elias built in 1903 is a refuge of calm, situated on the heights above the village. The holy icon of the Holy Virgin of Kanalia church (4th or 5th century) is thought to be the work of the evangelist Luke. It is made of candle-gum and holds powerful religious significance.
