Museums and historical local attractions

  • Visit the archaeological museum dedicated to the town of Nicopolis, an ancient city founded to commemorate the victory of Octavian Augustus at the naval battle of Actium in 31 BC. Translated from Greek to English the word Nicopolis means the city of victory. Situated just outside the town of Preveza, it is a perfect attraction for people who are interested in ancient Greek history.
  • Also explore the town of Nicopolis, spread in an area of 9,000 acres where visitors can see the ruins which include remnants of the baths, 6th century Byzantine fortified walls, the theatre, the sunken outline of the stadium, and the well-kept Roman odeon.
  • The Zalongo Monument (28km) is truly a one-of-a-kind landmark with great historical significance and it is definitely worth seeing. On the clifftop of Mount Zalongo, you’ll find a powerful sculpture commemorating the famous Dance of Zalongo, a mass suicide where women and children from Souli heroically threw themselves off the cliff when their town was taken over by Ali Pasha, over 200 years ago. You’ll also enjoy magnificent mountain views around the monument.
  • Visit the archaeological site of Cassope (26km), an ancient city memorable for its history and superb location, approximately 600 meters above sea level with a magnificent view of the Ionian Sea and the Amvrakikos Gulf. Some of the site’s highlights include the agora, the odeion, the katagoyeion or hostelry for representatives of the Cassiopeian federation, two theatres, and the temple of the goddess Aphrodite.
  • While strolling through the streets of Preveza, you can visit the Metropolitan Church of St. Charalambos, a beautiful cathedral nestled in the heart of the town.
  • Visit the oracle of the dead. The Necromanteion of Acheron is a mythologically significant and very interesting site to visit! It was an ancient Greek temple of necromancy dedicated to Hades, God of the dead, and Persephone, his captive wife and queen of the underworld. According to ancient history, it was situated on the banks of river Acheron and was believed to be the door to the underworld. The sanctuary is located on the outskirts of the village of Mesopotamo and is approximately a 35-minute drive from the hotel.
  • Enjoy a peaceful walk along the remains of the Pantocrator castle (5km), a large abandoned historical site with breath-taking seaside views.
