Rarely, human intervention in the natural environment manages to maintain the beauty of nature. One of these rare occasions was the creation of an artificial lake Kremasta, the largest in Greece, which joined so harmoniously into the environment, so only those who know they are artificial may believe.
Of course, several important historical and natural monuments and villages had to be sacrificed on the altar of development and technology. Thus, in the waters of Lake Kremasta rest forever, including the monastery of the Diocese (8th century), the arch bridge Tatarna the source Mardachas (the largest feeder of Achelous), the bridge that when Manolis covered the whole of the water and when it emerges, depending on the level of the lake, the villages of Agios Vassilios, Irons Trichonis Diocese etc.
The lake began to rise after the construction of the dam Kremasta, whose work ended in 1966 with the construction and the accumulation of vast amounts of water in the region caused an earthquake on July 5, 1966 which resulted in many abandoned villages and farmsteads. The dam, one of the largest in Europe, is dirt and the volume reaches 8.13 million cubic meters. Its height is 160 meters, length 460 meters, while the width of the base is 670 meters. There is also the Hydroelectric Station Electricity The main feeders of the lake are the rivers Achelous, Tavropos, Agrafiotis and Trikeriotis. The lake covers an area of 80,000 acres, has a maximum capacity of 4.75 billion cubic meters.
It is from Karpenissi about 57 km (up to the bridge Diocese). In several places we can enjoy its beauty and to engage in various sports such as rafting, kayak, rappelling etc..
