Geography - History

Kastriotissa is located on the northern border with the Regional Unit of Arta and northeast of the Amvrakikos Gulf. It is 36 km north of Amfilochia and 19 km SE. from Arta. The name of the village is due to the old castle that exists and dates back to the 3rd to 2nd century. e.g. It is probable that the ancient Olpi of Amvrakia was in the area and that in 426 BC. the battle of Amvakiotes with the Argians took place [3].
