Zagori is an area in Pindos mountain, the second highest mountain in Greece, in western Greece (Epirus), with green valleys, deep gorges, steep slopes, streams, rushing rivers and mountain lakes. Its villages are famous for their unique character and wild beauty. Meadows alternate with forests and mountain peaks with rivers in a landscape of tremendous unspoilt beauty, which the locals have respected and kept under their protection throughout the years.
A remarkable wealth of flora and fauna including some unique species of plants and more than 100 different species of birds, makes this region one of the richest in terms of diversity and natural beauty in Greece.
There is a network of cobbled footpaths and stone bridges was developed to facilitate communications and transport between the villages, which is kept in very good condition, one of the best examples of it being the three-arched bridge of Plakidas. All of it is accessible and adds to the unique beauty of this region.
The villages and towns are built in local stone, blending in with the mountain rock and maintaining the traditional look which along with the cobbled streets give this area its distinct character of mountain architecture that is so prominent in the area.
