We felt that we were approaching Arachova when we saw the steep slopes above and below our path planted with vineyards, and here and there a woman in her gay dress working on the steep incline, where a stumble might have sent her rolling many hundreds of feet into some torrent bed.
Arachova is remarkable as being one of the very few towns of Greece of any note which is not built upon a celebrated site.
For the wooden houses of Arachova are beyond all other structures infested with life, and not even the balconies in the frosty night air were safe from insect invasions.

That same year, he was appointed commander-in-chief of the Greek patriotic forces in Rumeli, achieving a mixed response: while failing to cooperate effectively with other leaders of the independence movement or with the foreign sympathizers fighting alongside the Greeks, he gained some military successes against the Ottomans.
His most famous victory was at Arachova (Greek, Αράχωβα), where his army crushed a force of Turkish and Albanian troops under Mustafa Bey and Kehagia Bey.
In 1827, Karaiskakis participated in the failed attempt to raise the siege of Athens, and attempted to prevent the massacre of the Turkish garrison stationed in the fort of Saint Spyridon.
