Neochori (Νεοχώριον) Karditsa

Neochori (local pronunciation of Nechori) is a large settlement in the prefecture of Karditsa. It is the largest of the villages of the Municipality of Lake Plastira, of which it is a Local Community. It is about 40 km away from Karditsa.

History

With the Treaty of Tamasio on 10-05-1525, Neochori was appointed seat of the council of the autonomous community of Agrafa. Specifically, the treaty referred to "All the villages of Agrafa are autonomous, which is governed by a council, with its seat near the plateau of Nevropoleos named after the town (Kasamba) Neochorion" [1]. The Holy Diocese of Fanari and Neochori was also located there.

In the past, the region's economy was rural and connected to the plateau of Nevropolis. After the creation of Lake Plastira in the place of the plateau, in 1959, the economy of the area was hit. With the tourist development that began in the area in the 1980s, the settlement recovered and is now based on tourism. Today it has numerous accommodations and tourist businesses.
