Upon entering Pavliani, visitors will see the memorial of all those - Greeks and Italians who died in the battle of Pavliani in June 1942.
Not forgetting to pay a visit to the park at the springs of Asopos. After a 10 minute drive into the forest, you reach a unique recreation/leisure park, with affluent amounts of running water, sports facilities and manually operated cable cars. You can play, exercise or just relax under the dense fir trees, whilst drinking a coffee or whatever takes your fancy from the refreshment room that operates there.
Between Upper and Lower Pavliani, there is the Hydrokinetic Museum. A stone built complex which houses the water sawmill, the watermill, the Fulling Mill and the Pulling Tub (Tristila).
Agios Athanasios Church is admirable with its wood-carved iconostasis and the stone built bell tower, dating back to 1868.
Visitors to Pavliani are left fascinated by the traditional structure and organization of the local community. The Stone Primary School is a monument of traditional architecture. Another characteristic of the community is of the prevalence of its residential development in two materials: stone and wood.
Of particular interest are the short or long excursions to the National Forest of Oitis up to the refuge of “Katavothres”, the Greveno peak and to Kouvello, where you can come across certain types of flora and fauna, unique to Oiti.
