Lialias Forest and Katiga’s Rock

Lialias Forest and Katiga’s Rock

Sitting on the edge of a deep ravine with a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains, legend has it that this huge boulder is the spot from which poor heartbroken Katiga is said to have leapt to her death. The path that leads to the rock is one of the most scenic. This more than 30 square kilometres of beech and pine forest is a protected Natura 2000 area. With a climate similar to that of northern Europe, it is a winter wonderland when covered in snow. The spring brings a burst of color with crocuses peeping out under the shade of ageless trees. More than 515 species of flora have been recorded and the region hosts an abundance of wildlife. The Sfagnonas part of the wood is of particular beauty and is protected as a paleobotanical area of great importance to the study of the forest’s history. It has been declared a monument of nature by the Agriculture Ministry.
