The undoubted mistress of mountain Parnassus, Arachova, is built in an amphitheatric way and it spreads magnificently to its south hillsides, at an altitude of 960 meters. A walk in this lovely village reveals the beauty combined with the unaltered traditional character and its cosmopolitan face, which place it rightfully at the top of Greek winter tourism.
With a panoramic view, uphill small houses, and cobbled streets that show a picturesque architecture, Arachova is famous for its black “brusque” wine, the colorful textiles, carpets, and rugs, its local “formaela” cheese, and woodcut creations. The village center includes a huge and steep cliff, the Bell Tower, covered with dense ivy. At the top of the tower is a large 10m height clock.
