Informations
Population: 3.469
Description: Metsovo is a mountain town of Epirus with population just over 3,000 residents. Located in the Pindos Mountains at an altitude of 1,200 meters ( 3,940 feet) and is about 50 km (31 miles) from the city of Ioannina. The largest proportion of residents are Vlach origin in the past the main economic activities of the wider region focused on farming. This is also why Metsovo is a leader in quality cheese. Moreover Metsovo boasts his great spiritual life of Greece as a place of origin of some of the largest national benefactors like Averof, Stournaris and Tositsas. Since many tourist guides describe it as the most picturesque settlement of Greece and when you will first experience the view to the village you will be convinced that it certainly deserves such a title. In recent decades tourism claims the majority stake of the overall activities of the locals, but in no case this development eroded the traditional character of the area. Now with the completion of the motorway junction of “Egnatia” Highway access is easy and tempts even the most undecided about making a really special trip.
