As autumn approaches, our mind continues to travel and, after the many beaches of the summer, seeks destinations in the mountains. After all, the first rains of the season are more charming when you’re walking on path in the Vikos gorge or when you’re strolling among the stone houses of the Tzoumerka and Zagori villages.
Under the eye of the Astraka towers
A unique universe that consists of natural beauty, truth and the tenacity of its people; that’s what Papigo is, perched on the slopes of mount Tymfi, it balances between its magic, its mystical dimension and human intervention. Leaving river Voidomatis behind, going uphill, after each of the 14 sharp, dizzying turns of the road, you’ll discover a new reality, a new perspective, a place that causes intense feelings and fills you with satisfaction and contentment.
The villages Megalo and Mikro Papigo, under the eye of the Astraka towers, those huge, distinctive vertical rocks, become a meeting destination and transform a simple visit into a unique experience. Original traditional architecture of the Zagori region, cobbled alleys, and slate roofs create a balanced beauty. The Megalo and Mikro Papigo, across each other, appear to be in conversation, and charm you instantly. Between them, the natural basins called Ovires Rogovou, where on hot summer days, travellers can swim and cool off.
