          The village

Kamatriades is a small picturesque semi-mountainous village built on a slope, but also on a small plateau formed by the foothills of Mount Telethrio at an altitude of 360 meters.

Historically, the village seems to have been created by the inhabitants of the village of Galatsades. For its name, according to tradition, it took its name from the cows of Galatsades, who, grazing in the meadows of the plain, could not turn them back at night, so they were forced to build the village, which took its name from the oxen and was named Kamatriades.

Today, although it maintains its traditional rhythm, it is constantly developing and attracting visitors. The beautiful environment, the wonderful view as well as the activities that it offers make it a special destination for young and old, an ideal base for hiking, horse riding, mountaineering and mountain biking.
