Stylida is the commercial port of Fthiotida, built on the site of the ancient town of Falares on the natural bay formed by Maliakos Gulf. The ruins of the ancient walls that once protected the town of the Aechean Fthiotians - until the beginning of the 4th century B.C. when the town passed to Malean hands - are conspicuous.
The Monasteries of Agios Vasilios and Agios Georgios as well as the Monastery of Agioi Taxiarhes in Neraida are the most important religious monuments of the area. There are many picturesque fishing villages, ideal for swimming, fishing and walking as well as countless fish tavernas by the sea with fresh fish from Maliakos Gulf.
