The 10min crossing from the town and a 30min walk on its cobblestone alleys will send you picking up echoes of folk songs and psalms of Christians, Jews and Muslims who lived on this land peacefully for centuries. It is filled with pine trees, unique stone houses, a natural port, full of fishing boats and it is the home of seven monasteries (the third largest group after Mount Athos and Meteora). The greatest one is Stratigopoulos Monastery and Philanthropinos Monastery. Find out the history behind Ali Pasas, you will be astonished!
A Trip for Time - Travelllers!
The boat view is spectacular and visitors feel like they have travelled back in time. With the city at your back, the magnificent Ioannina Castle and the Arslan Mosque start to fade away and they are replaced with the image of a small green island, under the shadows of the surrounding prominent mountains! On a foggy day, it feels like you are part of a fairytale!
With no cars at all, every walk will calm your soul, the chirping of the birds and the sound of the fallen leaves underneath your feet will remind you of the simple pleasures of life. Just a short walk up the hill you'll find panoramic views of the lake and all its fishing boats that will offer you an experience that will stay with you for a while!
