Edessa Waterfalls, Greece
Waterfalls are considered as one of the most impressive natural phenomenon around the world. Enjoy a visit to Greece’s picturesque waterfall in Edessa town which happens to be the capital of Pella. The river forming this renowned Greek waterfall is Edessaios. The city is filled with little bridges and the sound of running water will accompany your strolls around the town.
The main volume of water was collected in a small basin in the west side of the city, up to the end of the 14th century, but due to a geological phenomenon the water changed course and crossed the city forming this spectacular waterfall;
Enjoy the view of a green setting filled with tall trees and flowerbeds, located at the northeasternmost part of the town. Karanos waterfall measures 70 metres in height and is the biggest one in Greece. Don’t miss a walk behind the huge water curtain, built for enjoying the magnificent views of the running water as well as of the fertile Macedonian plain that lays in front of you. At a lower level you’ll see the entrance to a cave, of great geological value, which is mostly covered by the falling water.
