Featuring two of the four natural observatories of the Vikos Gorge, the deepest gorge in the world, Monodendri is understandably popular with visitors, Zagori guests and even day trippers from nearby: The balconies between the Agia Paraskevi monastery buildings are literally hanging above the gorge, while the short footpath at Oxies will take you to the most famous of the four. Still, besides the traffic, the village retains its traditional character and is a pleasure to visit.
