Lasion

This is the most significant city of the mountainous region in Ilia which borders with Arcadia and Achaia. It was located in the Kapelis plateau surrounded by particular plants called foloi. The foloi were named after the Centaur Folos who lived in the forest. Today the plateau is covered with a dense acorn forest and it is considered one the most beautiful in Greece. Traces of walls have been found near the village of Koumani at Kouti (Palaiokastro). The entire area is dotted with ruins and fragments with inscriptions. During Frankish rule it is believed that a tower was built on top of the ancient city.
