Its capital is Karpenisi (6,775 inhabitants, 2001). The prefecture is almost entirely covered with mountains including the Tymfistos and the Panaitoliko in the south and rivers including the Acheloos in the west, Agrafioti in the east and Megdova in the east flowing down to the Ionian Sea, and has a skiing resort. It is one of the least populated prefectures in Greece. It is one of the few prefectures that uses only one area code.

It is famous as the place of origin of Pavlos Bakoyannis, husband of Dora Bakoyanni
