As soon as we parked at Monodentri and stepped out to find ourselves before a maze of cobbled stoned lanes, we thought we might as well have exited Doc’s Delorean from “Back to the Future”. This place felt like it had come out of a fairytale. We had visited this village to walk up to the Monastery of Agia Kyriaki quite early in the day, having set off from the city of Ioannina after a very early breakfast at our hotel.

    • Kalimera! Lovely to hear from a local from this truly magnificent part of Greece! I love Ioannina and Zagori and I think I left a part of my heart there, so I’d better go back and get it someday 🙂 Thank you so much for visiting to leave a comment 🙂
