PINIOS RIVER: SOURCE OF LIFE AND GROWTH IN THESSALY

General

Pinios river is an aquatic ecosystem of great significance for Thessaly. The very existence of the river reflects the geological history of Thessaly. Over the centuries, the water runoff from the surrounding mountains has affected decisively the life and survival of human communities, their historical development, their civilisation and growth.
Moreover, Pinios river is today essential for the ecological balance and the water potential of the area. At the same time, the river and the aquatic sector in general are inextricably linked to all human activities, productive and unproductive, in Thessaly, determining the present and the future of this geographical area of the country.
