• The waterfalls of the river Sipias in Drymonas make up a spot of particular natural beauty and ecological value. The water plunges from 15 metres’ height into a crystal lake surrounded by dense fir forest and black pines. A journey among lush, wild vegetation and a swim in the waterfalls during summertime provide extra motivations for a visit. The waterfalls are located at an altitude of 620 m, 4 km after the cloister of St. David’s through the road setting out of Rovies.

• A unique natural monument is a petrified forest of at least 20 million years of age, near the village of Kerasia. It is one of the richest petrified forests in all Europe. Stony trunks of gigantic trees are visible in the part of the forest that has been bared. Some findings of the regional fauna are exhibited at the Fossils Museum of Kerasia.
