The magical landscape of Lake Paralimni

Lake Paralimni is not well known although not far from Athens. We need to leave the highway at the height of Thebes, to discover her charm, hidden behind the hills at the foot of Mount Ptoon. Paralimni is partly formed by the waters of Boeotian Kifissos and Kopaida lake, which was drained in 1930. In this video, the quite unspoilt rural, open, broad and mountainous landscape is revealed through the flight of birds. Herons take long flights either against the whistling wind or with it, dashing through the wide landscape. Cormorants, Little Egrets, Great white Egrets, Grey Herons, Marsh Harriers, Common Buzzards, Coots, and Corn Buntings appear to guide us. The tour ends in the tower-fortress (probably from the Frankish occupation) at the North-Eastern bank of the lake at the top of a hill, where there used to be a settlement from archaic times until the 19th century.
