Create an itinerary including Edessa Waterfalls
The Edessa Waterfalls or Edessis Waterfalls are located in Edessa in Greece. The falls are a natural phenomenon that arose after a strong earthquake that struck the surrounding area in the 14th century. Since then, many changes have taken place in their morphology due to earthquakes of smaller scale.

The main source of these waterfalls is the wetland of Agra-Nissiou, from which flows the main river, Edessaios. Edessaios branches are the waterfalls. Furthermore, the Geopark of the Falls spreads over an area of over 100,000sqm and on a path on the rock for 1.1 km.

The waterfalls are the main attraction of visitors to Edessa. There are twelve waterfalls in the area, of which four are easily visible.

The paths of the Waterfall Park include the stone-paved path to Ancient Edessa through the plain of the city. This passage was a part of the ancient Egnatia road linking Ancient Edessa, the Acropolis of Edessa (Varosi district) and Thessaloniki until the beginning of the 20th century.

  • Google is asking me how was Edessa Waterfalls. Well, they were pretty... dry. Due to maintenance and for quite some time now (public works in Greece are not the fastest) the water of the main waterfall is closed. So you have more chances of actually seeing the waterfall during weekends, until the works will be completed likely in a few years from now. Other than that, the place is beautiful and I love it. And the waterfall, when there's some water running, is also beautiful.
  • A very pretty place. The waterfall stretches about a hundred fifty feet from the top to the bottom. However, it continues as the water Cascades over different levels of rocks. For a small fee of 1 euro you can take a short walk into an underground narrow path where you see stalactites and stalagmites that where formed. The stairs take you from the top to the bottom and even behind the water falls. Bring a camera and a comfortable pair of shoes as there is quite a bit of walking up and down. It is really worth the time to see. There are also cafes in the area that have a nice ambience but pricey.
