- LOCATION OF THE MONTH
EPIRUSEpirus is one of the most spectacular, historically and culturally, regions in Greece. Located in the northwestern part of the country, it is run by mountains, forests and rivers with fertile plains and valleys interrupting the mountain ranges from north to south and stretches up to the Ionian Sea. Blessed with landscapes of unique beauty, from the untouched mountain Pindus and the rivers Aoos and Voidomatis to its mountain lakes called Dragon Lakes (drakolimnes), Epirus is ideal for a variety of activities such as mountaineering, climbing, hiking, kayak, rafting, canoeing etc. Its prosperous architecture and popular art stem from Epirus’ culture from the 18th and 19th century. You can feel the passage of different historical periods when you stroll around mansions and monuments in the cobbled streets of Zagorochoria -the stone-built traditional villages of Zagori -, famous for their historical and architectural value or when you come across the arched stone bridges of superb craftsmanship.
