Zagori Zagorohoria
The beautiful and famous area of Zagori is a network of 46 villages
spread all over the mountains on the north east of the city of Ioannina.
The word Zagori first appeared in a document of 1321 and it means
"behind the mountains". It is one of the many toponyms that come
from the Slavic language (from the proposition Za, which means
"behind" and the noun gora that means "mountain"). The villages
of Zagori are famous for their unbelievable natural beauty, their unique
architecture and their long history. Not without a reason of course,
since the smashing natural landscape, the picturesqueness of every
single village and the unlimited opportunities for sallies and every
kind of activities really charm and impress the visitor. There are so
many things that one can admire that we cannot say for sure which
is more impressive. All we can say for sure is that you will not
believe your eyes!
