The Gorgopotamos Bridge is one of the most famous bridges in Greece. It crosses Gorgopotamos and connects Bralo with Lamia while it carries the Athens-Thessaloniki railway line.
The Bridge is well known for its role in the National Resistance, as it was destroyed on 25 November 1942 in the battle of Gorgopotamos by resistance from the EDES and ELAS organizations, co-operating under British agents, mainly against Italian and German forces defending the bridge. Its aim was mainly psychological and symbolic, since the battle of El-Alamein had already been made and the fate of military operations in Africa had already been determined. In 1982, with Law 1285, the anniversary of the Battle was established as an annual nationwide celebration of the National Resistance.
