The Environment Museum of Stymphalia, whose aim is to show the interdependence of mankind and Nature, focuses on their harmonious coexistence in the Stymphalia basin.
Its objective is to raise the public’s ecological awareness and preserve the knowledge of the region’s traditional technology.
The Environment Museum of Stymphalia is located on the slope of one of the verdant hills surrounding Lake Stymphalia where, according to mythology, Hercules confronted and slew the Stymphalian birds.
The first module of the Environment Museum of Stymphalia provides information on the region’s environment and its importance.
Stymphalia belongs to the European Network of Protected Areas NATURA 2000. Lake Stymphalia and Mount Zireia are of great ecological value.
