PELLA - EDESSA - VERGINA
*The city of Edessa is well known for its 12 waterfalls formed by the river Edessian (also known as Botha) flowing through the city. Two of the largest waterfalls in Greece are visible and accessible here. Waterfall Karanos & the Double Waterfall are located in the center of the Falls Geopark. The area is surrounded by century old plane trees and the lush park of waterfalls. German occupation forces formed the park, before that access to the waterfalls was difficult.
