Edessa  

Edessa - Pella (Greece)

Edessa. Edessa is built at the foot of Mount Vermion and overlooks the Edessa Plain. There is an abundance of greenery, many streams, and gardens full of flowers. Northeast of the city, in a bushy area with a beautiful view, are the famous waterfalls of Edessa. Water is bubbling from the ground and splashes down. It flows through natural ditches, bordered by flowers and grass. Behind the waters of the largest waterfall is a cave containing the Ascension's Church. Five kilometers (3 mi) from here we come to the village of Agras, which derives its name from the warrior in the Macedonian war Tellos Agras. This area is home to one of the largest hydroelectric companies of Greece. In the lake that covers an area of 10,000 hectares (39 sq mi), we see many wild ducks and swans.
