Andritsaina is one of the most beautiful mountain villages in Greece. The village has also a very important library. This famous library was built in 1840 by the donations of a humanist living in Paris with roots from Andritsaina named Agathofron Nikolopoulos. Its collection comprises rare 16th and 17th century manuscripts, rare Greek or foreign books, important documents from the period of the Greek War of Independence and rich folklore material. Today, the library has more than 40000 books. The village played a crucial role during the Greek War of Independence. In 1826, Andritsaina was destroyed by Ibrahim’s troops.
