"Lingiades or Lingiadhes, North West Epirus, Greece" zeus6020's Profile

The eagles watch point over the Jannina basin.

Lingiades the village just 5 kilometres away from the capital of NW Greece, Jannina. But only 2 as the bird flies and 300 metres over the lake surface.
Magnificent view over the plain of the Jannina basin.
The village is more than 600 years
old, when a monastery was established and round it gathered
shepherds with their grazing animals.
It was totally destroyed the 3rd of October 1943 and 82 of its citizens were murdered by revenge seeking Wermacht soldiers.
