Heading from Thiva to Kaparelli, visitors will first cross the picturesque villages Loutoufi and Melissochori.
With a modern urban layout, Kaparelli is justifiably considered one of the most beautiful villages of the wider region. It is built at an altitude of 320 meters.
In the centre of the village is the square, dominated by the holy church of Saint Panteleimon, in Byzantine style. He is the patron saint of the village in whose honour a feast is held on July 27th with traditional music and a crowd of people. Its construction dates back to the period of Frankish rule (1204-1460).
In 1904, the works began in order to give the church its present form. The interior of the church is impressive with numerous chandeliers and frescoes. The green, nicely landscaped square is flanked by pretty small hangouts and traditional taverns. There visitors can enjoy the hospitality and services of the locals.
The coastal settlements Agios Vasilis and Kalamaki, which are surrounded by the sea of the Corinthian Gulf, belong to the L.C. of Kaparelli.
Agios Vasilis is a fairly organized beach, with fish restaurants, taverns, cafes, mini markets. There is usually only one canteen in Kalamaki.
