The surroundings of Ioannnina with fantastic atmosphere, panoramic views and a cup of coffee at 900 m up in the sky.


Within this tour, we will visit the Dourahani Monastery and the village of Ligiades.
The legend says that the monastery was founded by a Turkish military man Dourachan Pasa. In winter 1434 he passed with his soldiers from Ioannina to the foot of the Mitsikeli mountain. The Pamvotis lake was covered by ice and snow. Thus, when he realized that the troops passed through the lake without being harmed, he considered that a divine miracle and donated money for monastery construction. Nowadays, it is one of the most famous monasteries in the area, known for its charity work and an escape for spiritual meditation and pilgrimage.
In the end, we will go for a cup of coffee in the village of Ligiades, a place with a breathtaking panoramic view of the area, sit at a cozy balcony or a terrace, take great pictures and talk. This is a really relaxing tour close to the city.
