The small and particularly mountainous district of Vitinitsa (now: Tolophon), is situated on the northern shore of the Gulf of Corinth, halfway between Delphi and Lepanto/Navpaktos in Central Greece. The history of the district of Vitrinitsa in the Ottoman period, and its links with the beautiful northern Anatolian city of Amasya on the river Kızıl Irmak, have remained a blank page of history.
