Description:
Granitsa () is a mountain village in the Evrytania prefecture located at 850 meters of altitude. It is built into the forested downhill regions of Mount Liakoura next to the Granitsiotis River. It also offers views of the Granitsiotis valley and the mountain. Granitsa was the seat of the municipality of Aperantia. The village preserves its old appearance and it is 82 kilometers northwest from Karpenisi. It is the birthplace of artists such as Stefanos Granitsas, Demosthenis Goulas, and Michael Stafylas. It is also the home of Michael Mavroudis, who became a martyr after he was killed in 1544. Granitsa had seventeen churches, most of which were destroyed during Ottoman rule. It is worth visiting the Folklore Museum which contains popular art such as woven objects, carved wooden objects, rural cattle-raising tools, a loom, local clothes and weapons from the Greek Revolution of 1821. The museum also contains portraits and personal belongings of individuals such as Zacharias Papantoniou and Stefanos Granitsas, paintings of the popular local painters Christos Kagaras and Lefteris Theodorou and the personal book collection of Zacharias Papantoniou. Other notable sights are the remaining nine churches of the village. They were built in different time periods.
