    Stop At: Oiniades, Greece
    Ancient Oiniades was a port town on the west bank of the river Achelous. The town was characterized as one of the most important of Ancient Acarnania(it is now known as Aitoloacarnania).

    It was an important port on the route to Corfu. It changed its alliances repeatedly in the course of history; at first it was a member of the Peloponnesian League, but in 424 BC it was incorporated in the Delian League. In the Hellenistic period, Oiniades allied with the Aetolians until 218 BC when Philip V declared it free. From 211-189 BC during the Roman-Macedonian wars the city was again under Aetolian control. In Roman times it lost its strategic importance. However it was still inhabited in the 3rd century AD judging from coin finds.

    Above Lake Ozero or Galitzas, on a hill lying to the east of the hill where the ruins of the Ancient Fortress of the divers are preserved, the monastery of Ligovitsi is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Its external form is fortuitous. In the center is placed the Katholikon belonging to the type of the three-aisled inscribed cruciform with a dome. The three aisles are housed under a common pitched roof, interrupted by another transverse. At the meeting point of the crosses of the Cross, an octagonal dome rises. Along the sides of the wall there is built a number of cells with a hollow roof. The front of the semicircular tower on the northeastern wall of the Catholic, the wall is marked by the date 1737, which proves the rich history of the monastery.
