Sarantaporos Valley Villages

Heading northeast from Konitsa we find the villages of Trapeza and Nikanoras. There, we will meet the Holy Monastery of Agios Nikanoras which miraculously “rests” on a stone rock and which gives us an amazing view of Mastorochoria villages.

We meet the intersection for Pirgos (with the wonderful view) and continue towards Kastanea, a village which is an exceptional sample of the traditional architecture.

And our journey continues in the direction of the borders of Western Macedonia, successively passing the intersections for the villages of Lagada, Theotokos, Kefalochori, the wonderful Drosopigi and Plagia with its famous bridge.
