Imagine a place both wild and welcoming, full of bright blue beaches as well as snowy mountain peaks that almost reach the skies. A place that offers a refreshing swim in the noon and a soothing breeze in the night. This is the famous and photographed Epirus, with its unique natural beauty, the coastline of the Ionian Sea and the renowned Pindos.
In Epirus you will find many places and sights to explore, such as:
Beaches, mountains, rivers, canyons, villages, archaeological sites, forests, wild animals as well as a historical background that gets lost in time. Flavors and products that nature offers in cooperation with the human power.
The history of Epirus traces back to the antiquity until the present day. Its distinctive datum is the archaeological site of Dodoni with the ancient theater, the largest of its period (18.000 speculators) built on the 3rd century BC
Some of the other equally important archaeological sites are the ancient Nicopolis in Preveza, the Necromantion of Acheron, the castle of Ioannina as well as the monasteries that scattered through the whole realm of Epirus. The most known of these monasteries are the monastery of Kipina in Kalarrites, the monastery of Stomio in Konitsa and the monasteries of Saint John Rogovos and Saint Paraskevi in Zagor.
The tastes of traditional Epirus food are unique.

In Tzoumerka, where dairy products such as the cheese “feta” of Epirus, galotiri and traditional kefalotyri can be found, we won’t lose the chance to taste some delicious meat recipes.
