Konitsa and beyond

Lying in the north-west end of the Zagori area, Konitsa is a quiet town by the Aoos river, featuring the biggest single arch stone bridge of the Balkans, and offering beautiful views towards the Pindos mountains.

Konitsa is also the gateway to the famous Mastorohoria, the villages of the world famous stonemasons of Epirus: travelling in groups all over the Balkans for months at end, those dexterous craftsmen have created amazingly light structures that survive through the centuries, still serving their original purpose, but also now functioning as tourist attractions as well!
