As with the other Zagori villages, Monodendri enjoyed an extended period of commercial and economic prosperity during the 17th and 18th centuries. There were schools built, churches in the Byzantine style and luxurious stone manors.
Zagoria (or Zagorochoria or Zagorohoria), is a region and a municipality in the Pindus mountains in Epirus, in northwestern Greece. It is an area of great natural beauty, with striking geology and two national parks, one including the river Aoos and the Vikos Gorge, the other around Valia Kalda, to the east of the imposing snow-capped Mt Tymphe. The 45 or so villages of Zagori were interconnected by mountain roads and traditional arched stone bridges until modern roads were opened in the 1950s. The stone arched bridges were built by benefactions from expatriate merchants in the 18th century and replaced older wooden bridges.

    Great image. I especially like the orange glow on the house wall – it looks like early morning, with people just waking up and getting ready for a beautiful day. Amazing.

  • Thank you Jens for your comment, actually it is a cold winter sunset…
