Zagorochoria

Zagorochoria constitute a unique residential, historical and cultural unity of 46 villages north of the basin of Ioannina, in the north-western edge of Pindos. The physical boundaries are mountain Mitsikeli on the south side, river Aoos on north, the mountains of Ligou on the east and the mountain Timfi on the west. Zagori, geographically, is divided into three sections: the Central, West and East Zagori with twenty, ten and sixteen villages respectively. Today Zagorohoria maintains their cultural heritage in an effort to continue the traditions and customs of the region. The particular architecture, the traditional music, the natural beauty, the wild beauty of the mountains and rich flora and fauna of the region are those characteristics that distinguish it. In the region of Zagori is developed a unique architecture, based on the abundance of stone and wood. The architecture of Zagori is a good example of imitation of the nature by human. The habitants of Zagori had to face the harshness of the climate and space. A constant struggle characterized the relations between human and the area. So, the houses are very tied to the landscape, the mentality and lifestyle of local residents.
