Lamia

Built upon the south western side of Mt. Orthis, today's Lamia is very much a commuting center, not to be avoided in passing from the south to the north and vice versa.

The town, according to mythology, took its name from the daughter of Poseidon, although another version states that it owes its name to the son of Heraklis and Omfialis, Lamo or Lamio.

It is a modern provincial town, full of activity all year round and it has many shops. Its varied, individual squares are characteristic of the town and it has some historic monuments. The towns castle is to be found on one of the two hills, amongst green scenery. Passing its vaulted door, you will see the Ottoman barracks which today are used as an Archaeological museum, hosting archaeological finds from all the prefectures of Fthiotidas and of all Periods (Neolithic, Bronze, Iron, Antiquity, Classical, Greek and Roman). The wonderful view of the Oitis on the opposite side of the valley of Sperhiou, the Kallidromio, the imposing peaks of Mt. Parnassos and the plain, which reaches to the gulf of Malaiako, will enchant you.

Its worth visiting the Post Byzantine Church of The Virgin Mary of Archontikis and the Mitropolis of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary, which is found in Eleftherias Square.

Also worth visiting, are the private collections of A. Plati and A. Kounoupi, which contain ceramics, books, photographs, documents, sculptures, jewelry, works of popular art, as well as arms from the revolution of 1821. The Folklore museum hosts a rich collection of objects from agricultural life.

The Pan Hellenic Agricultural Exhibition of Lamias is organized during May and shows cars, agricultural machinery, furniture, household appliances, traditional goods, electrical items and so on.

If you should happen to find yourself in the capital at the beginning of November you can watch the "Fthiotika", which entails performances by traditional bands, speeches, exhibitions and so on.

Only 10 minutes away from the town and near to the banks of the River Sperheiou, on the road, which links Lamia with Karoenisi, you will find Lionokladi. Continuing on you will come across the Baths of Ypatis and the historical village of Kombotades in the foothills of Oitis.

The sea town of St. Konstandinos, just 49 km from Lamia, is a center for commuters, and a passage to north Greece, the Sporades and the Aegean Islands.

The town of Lamia provides pleasant vacations as well as a weekend outing, combining recreation, cultural and historic interest, the good life and delightful mezes in the superb tsipouradika, which you will come across in different corners of the town.
