Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Agrafa is a mountainous region in Eurytania south of Thessaly in mainland Greece. It is mainly comprised of small villages, including Krioneri, Morfovouni, Vounesi, and others. Agrafa is famous for its complete autonomy throughout the entire 400 years of Ottoman Turkish occupation of Greece and the Balkans. The word Agrafa literally translates to, unwritten. Because the Turks were unable to conquer this region, the area and its population were not recorded in the Sultan's tax register.
Agrafa is the third largest community in Eurytania after Domnitsa and Karpenisi. Agrafa is accessed with the road linking with GR-38 and the northern villages with a poor road to the Karditsa Prefecture. Agrafa located west-northwest of Karpenisi, east-northeast of Agrinio, south of Karditsa and east-southeast of Arta. The Agrafiotis River flows to the west and further east is the Megdova River. The Agrafa region has been populated for approximately 2,500 years. The fiercely independent spirit of its people, known as Agrafiotes, is matched by a harsh and forbidding landscape. The central Agrafiotis River valley is surrounded on three sides by a steep 2,000-meter wall of mountains, and on its south side the river drains via a series of narrow and often impassable gorges into the man-made Lake Plastiras. Agrafa has a school, a lyceum or a middle school, a gymnasium or a secondary school, churches, a post office, banks, and a few squares or plateies.
