Geography

The source of the river Charadros is in the Panachaiko mountains, northwest of its highest point. It flows in a northwestern direction through a narrow, forested valley. In its lower course, it passes the villages Skioessa and Kato Kastritsi. It flows into the Gulf of Patras in the northern Patras neighbourhood Kastellokampos.

History

In Antiquity, the herdsmen believed that female animals that drank water from the river bore mostly male offspring; for this reason, they only watered their cows here. Alternative, historical names are Belbitsianiko and Bozaitiko.
