Mountains and canyons, lakes and rivers, waterfalls and thermal spas are a few of the features of the northern west part of Greece. The mountains of Varnous, Vernon, Voras and Vermio are natural boarders for the east and west sides of the prefecture of Florina thus separating the basin of Florina and Aminteo, while the numerous lakes (Small and Big Prespa, Vegoritida, Petron, Himaditida, Zazari) with the rivers Ligo and Floriniotiko create a natural habitat for thousands of indigenous and migrating birds.
Important monuments of the region are: the Basilica of Agios Achillios, the Vyzantine monuments of Prespes, the Hellenistic City on the hill of St Panteleimonas in the city of Florina, the Hellenistic City Petron and the archaeological site of St Panteleimonas in Amintaio.
