Karpenisi (Greek: Καρπενήσι) is a town in central Greece. It is the capital of the regional unit of Evrytania. Karpenisi is situated in the valley of the river Karpenisiotis (Καρπενησιώτης), a tributary of the Megdovas, in the southern part of the Pindus Mountains. Mount Tymfristos (2,315 m elevation) lies directly to the north of the town, and the foothills of mount Kaliakouda are in the south. Karpenisi has a ski resort and is a popular destination, especially during winter.
According to Homer, the first known inhabitants of northern Evrytania -Karpenisi- were the Dolopes, who took part in the campaign against Troy around 1100 BC. The ancient capital of the area was Oihalia, situated close to the city of Karpenisi. Ancient Evritanians especially honored Diana, the goddess of hunting and Ulysses for his ability to be cunning and inventive.There are two possible explanations for the origin of the name “Evrytania”. The first is that is formed from the Greek word “ev” for “well” and the verb “hreo”, for “flow” so that altogether the word “Evrytania” means the place where there is plenty of fresh and “well flown” water. The second explanation for the names origins, comes from the verb “evrio”, meaning “stretching the cord of the bow”, hence the name of the first king of the area, Evritos, who was an excellent archer.
