Photographer's Note

In this photo you can see a big part of Ioannina (town of the jewellers), the capital of the region of Epirus, a town with a very important history, especially during the years of the Ottoman Empire. There is a modern vibrant part, but also a picturesque old part inside a big castle and lots of monuments to see there, including two beautiful mosques. Today the town has a population of around 100.000 people, among them more than 20.000 students that study at its famous university ang give the tone to the vibrant cultural and night- life. There is also a beautiful lakeside road, ideal for evening romantic walks, especially when fog makes its appearance.

You can also see part of the lake and its island, the only inhabited lake island in Greece. The village on the island is also beautiful with an atmosphere of old times. There you can taste delicious snales and frogfeet.

Photo taken from the road that leads to the wonderful and heroic village of Lygiades.
