Outside of the village of Agia Anna, 3 km west in a mountainous area, there is a famous gorge, the Boulovinena Gorge (or Arapis). The visitor arrives via the village of Paleovrisi. History tells that during the Revolution of 1821, Boulovinena, wanting to avoid the Turks, fell into it and has since been named after it. More specifically, it is said that during the Ottoman domination, in a cave in the gorge, about 40 people were hiding among the Turks, including Boulovinena. Through the gorge flows the Nileas river, which has its springs on Mount Xiro.
