Zagoria - Part 1

Monday, 29 May 2017

We're spending three nights in the small mountain town of Aristi.

Our full-size tour bus went over this narrow bridge -- twice!
This part of Greece is famous for stone-arch bridges built by the Ottomans in the 18th century.
At the Kokkori Bridge
Butterflies were abundant.
The impressive Vikas Gorge as seen from the St. Paraskevi Monastery near Monodendri. (What a great name for a town -- it literally means "one tree". But there are now a number of gorgeous plane trees gracing the plazas in this small town.)
A grape arbor at the entrance to St. Paraskevi monastery.
The St. Paraskevi monastery is tiny. The overlook and view (two photos above) is through the doorway in the rear.
