Prefecture of Ioannina Things to Do: 24 reviews and 104 photos
Syrrako is a very impressive historical village on Tzoumerka mountains. With its twin village Kalarites they are no doubt a must if you are in the neighborhood. They are just one hour drive from Ioannina, 42 kilometers southwest, at an altitude of 1200meters. They are built on the rim of a deep ravine and is an example of traditional architecture of the area. As you are approaching you can admire both villages built entirely of stone, on each side of the ravine. Plenty of natural and man made monuments are spread in this place. Syrrako is the native place of several important men of politics and literature, such as the well known Greek author and poet Kostas Krystallis and the first Prime Minister of Greece Ioannis Kolletis. Your visit will be unforgettable as the village manages to connect the present and the past in a very harmonious way and with respect to the natural environment. No cars can get into the village which is connected to the road with a long stone staircase.
If you are a nature lover and like trekking you will find hundreds of enjoyable hikes and will see plenty of amazing things!
The best spot is the central square shaded by huge trees and having nice views.
