Basilica of Saint Achilles

You can walk on the floating footbridge (650 m.) and reach the island of Saint Achilles located in Small Prespa Lake. The island has few inhabitants and it is one of the most beautiful villages of the area. On the island you will also see the church and the tomb of St. Achilles (10th century). It is a three-aisled basilica (one of the largest in Greece) which was the Episcopal Church of the region for five centuries.

The island is the center of the Prespeia festival with major concerts. The festival is held each year in the last ten days of August.
