On the north slopes of Mount Parnassus a small town of 800 inhabitants, Arachova, is located. 8km away from Delphi 157 km from Athens, 25 km from Parnassus (Parnassos) ski centres and about 25km from beautiful beaches Antikira, Itea, and Galaxidi, Arahova is a resort for all seasons of the year and for all types of travellers.
The first time Arahova was referred to is in Homer's Iliad, but as we know it today, Arahova was built by King Philip II of Macedonia in 334 BC. In the Christian ages Saint George killed a Dragon to leave the water running free for the people of this village.
Today many choose as Arahova as their vacation destination for different reasons; for the natural landscape where it is located with the rich fauna and flora, for the Easter festival called “Panygiraki” and all the traditions connected to it, for cool vacation in the summer accompanied with mountain hiking activities, or for skiing in the winter and partying in its chic & trendy clubs during the winter period.
