Valtos Province

Jesse Russell

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Valtos Province (Greek: Επαρχία Βάλτου) is one of the five former provinces of Aetolia-Acarnania in Greece. It lies in the north-west part of the prefecture. Its capital was Amfilochia. The Acheloos River was the border of the province to Evrytania. Today the Kremasta artificial lake separates the province from Evrytania. During Ottoman rule, the region of Valtos (which means "swamp" in Greek) was a safe haven for bandits and brigands. During the struggle for the liberation of Greece Valtos contributed many fighters and leaders to the Greek Revolution.
