Piana is the dominion of Pan. This area of Falanthos took its name from the God of vegetation and life. Piana was formerly the main village of the Municipality of Falanthos. It spreads out in all directions on a peculiar looking steep rock which looks like a giant sculpture. On that rock St George proudly rises up, a church unique in its beauty and power. Piana is a listed settlement, due to the dedication to tradition of the residents. The meticulous folklore museum safeguards a comprehensive presentation of local life. The houses are a distinctive example of local architecture. Piana is a historic place. It revived in about 1600 and was fated to play a big part in the uprising. Besides the participation of the young lads, it was the main bread supplier to the Greek revolutionaries. Piana supplies Tripoli with water through beautiful and proud springs such as ‘Kapa’ or ‘ the Master’s’ fountain in the lower neighborhood. It is located to the east of Mainalo so it gets plenty of sun. Close by are the ruins of the ancient Dipaia. The Elissona river passes through the plains of Piana and above it the mountain watches over.
