Andritsana

"The Magisterial and proud city, scrambled up the rocks,
as if a peculiar medieval city,
stands out though winter transparent haze,
like a powerful bird having his wings spread.

Alas, a past great glory will be confined by towering houses and narrow streets.
Here the sadness has been instilled the spirit of nobleness,
the spirit of great dead people seems hanging heavy"

These verses, written by Efi Aimilianou – Kyrillopoulou, a woman coming from Adritsaina, taken out of the poem "Andritsaina 1942" (Olympic Chronicles, 1971, Volume B'), reflects the sadness of the autumn or winter landscape of Andrtsaina, the magisterial city located on the mountainous part of Ilia which gave birth to worthy people and made its own history.
