Modern Description: What is called the ‘Kambos Choras' today is a wide and fertile, south-facing plain between the mountains and the shore. It is watered by the streams that run off from the mountains to the north (Mt. Ambelos, 1153m) and west (Mt. Bourniás, 778m)—principally the Imbrasos ‘river' at the western end, and the Kaláthi, to the east; today these are only seasonal streams, but in early Antiquity they probably flowed more constantly. The mountains protect the plain from the north winds and create a micro-climate ideal for cultivation.
