Necromancy: The Ancient Necromancy locates at Mesopotamos village in Preveza, about 20 km from Lichnos. It was buried under the existing cemetery and the monastery of St. John of the 18th century and was revealed in the excavations of 1958.
Its architecture resembles to a magnificent funerary monument or mausoleum of the 5th century. It consists of polygonal masonry,steel gates,interior hallways and the main temple which is divided in 3 rooms. Below the central hall of the temple is the underground hall which is carved in the rock. It was deliberately constructed to create the guests strongly psycho acoustic phenomena.
So the ancient pilgrims, with the help of priests, could contact with the souls of the dead asking them advice and information for the future. The Necromancy of Acheron is a unique monument and the only place where the ancient visitors had the chance to communicate with the underworld.
River Acherontas. There are places that words can’t describe. One such place is the breathtaking canyon of Acherontas. The river and its canyon attracts tourists from all over the world. It’s full of mystery and famous as the destination of the dead . Everyone knows the river where the gates of Hades are waiting for the souls to be led to the eternal underworld. Acheron is a mystical river of such natural beauty that few places can compete with it.
We highly recommend a trekking trip in the Strait of the river where crystal clear water is running between vertical cliffs over 100 meters high.
For those who love adventure there are trips in and out of the river (river trekking or hiking) with rising degree of difficulty. The hikers can walk deep in the canyon under the deep shade of huge trees and the lush vegetation until they cross the gates of Hades and Persephone’s Palace. Here anyone can understand why Greeks chose this very wild and majestic scenery to place the entrance to the underworld
