Ioannina, a Rich City within the Lake
Ioannina is the largest city and capital of Epiros. Mentioned in the book The Count of Monte Cristo, Ioannina is mostly a modern city, but also rich in historic memories. The first thing you notice in Ioannina is that itís almost surrounded by a lake, the lake of Pamvotis. But even though thatís probably the most interesting feature of Ioannina, itís not the only! What should be mentioned first? The old fortress of the Despots? The Clock, built in 1905 by Periklis Mellirhytos, which dominates the main square? The Pavlos Vrellis museum of Greek History, the Greek version of the Madame Tussaudís museum? Or maybe the Perama cave, one of the countryís largest caves, full of beautifully shaped stalagmites? Probably all. Ioannina is a breathtaking city that youíll never regret visiting!
