Metsovo in north-western Greece
Metsovo is one of the most picturesque and traditional towns in Greece.
It is built like an amphitheatre at an altitude of 1.156m., on
one of the highest peaks of the Pindos range at the junction of
Epirus, Thessaly and Western Macedonia.
It is the capital of the Metsovo province and it has a population
of 6.000 inhabitants. The mountainous terrain consists of strong
elevations while many species of the flora and fauna find refuge
in the dense forests.
Metsovo is the center of attraction for many visitors and in an
admirable way combines the spirit of Greek hospitality wit the
reservation of its own special character. It is probably the only
village in Greece with so many sites of interest.
