Tzoumerka
Reaching the mountains and the gorges of river Arachthos, the beautiful stone bridges of the region help the visitor to conquer Tzoumerka and to be conquered from the imperishable natural beauty and the human creation. The region is really wild and remains untouchable from the modern world. Only nature controls here and life rolls at the rhythms of the seasons. Naked rocks and impetuous rivers create landscapes difficult to walk of astonishing beauty with astonishing gorges and rich ecosystems that give the visitor the possibility to feel the greatness of nature.

The villages of Tzoumerka and the Katsanochoria, climbing in the slopes like eagle nests, are homelands of famous craftsmen and artists. Remarkable churches and monasteries are built in places that offer panoramic view, famous traditional settlements, threshing floors, springs, steps, watermills and bridges, constitute pole of attraction and testify the acne of the region at the past.

The bridge of Plaka constitutes the point of report of the region and an amazing monument of the rich architectural heritage of the place. It was built in 1866 from the Ipeirotes craftsmen of stone, who those seasons were famous for their art in all the regions of the Balkans. Even today, it impresses with its astonishing symmetry, its size, the architecture perfection, its harmonisation with the natural environment, the daring of its designing that achieves to be frugal and elaborate in the same time and its resistance in time and the impetus of the river.

The picturesque village Pramanta is the heart of the wider region and constitutes an ideal starting line for those who want to explore a lot of its interesting points. The traveller can visit the wonderful monasteries of Tsoukas, the Kipinas, the Vilizas and the Plaka and the stone-built settlements Sirrako and Kalarrites with the many storey mansions and the architectural diversity that is harmonised with the morphology of the ground, but also the cavern "Anemotripa" with the underground waterfalls and the rich stalagmite material.

The lovers of the rivers and the mountainous sports can experience dreamed enjoyments. The region is ideal for adventure and activities, like walking, exploration of caverns, riding and mountaineering on ice in the winter. There are also occasions for rafting and kayak in the gorges of Arachthos, the biggest in length river of Ipeiros and Kalarritikos.

When the day finishes, the visitor will find the formal warmth of Ipeiros hospitality in the villages of Tzoumerka. It is an ideal place for those who love the wild nature and the warm hospitality.
