Katarraktis is a picturesque village, situated at an altitude of 800 m. Its previous name was “Shoretsana”, but in 1927 it was renamed after the twin waterfalls at a small distance from the village. The waterfalls are a “must-see” attraction of the area, as well as the monastery of Saint Catherina.
