Ioannina - at lake Pamvotia. It is the largest city in Epirus, with old buildings, narrow streets. It´s a charmingly town.
The area around the town has also other attractions: Mouzakaioi with the wax museum, the village of Perama with the famous cave, the island in the lake.
Ioannina experienced his time of prosperity in Ottoman Empire. Still today it is famous for his silversmiths. The Turkish influence is very clear to recognize by the castle arrangement and the mosque. The foundation goes back till 13. Century.
