Habitants infrastructures in Zagori

Infrastructure created by locals

Throughout history, humans found shelter in the area and constructed a unique set of infrastructural elements that blend in perfectly with Nature. Stone-built bridges skilfully connect narrow passages and stretch over fast-flowing rivers, cobble-stone trails and paths connect stone-built villages to each other, all in perfect harmony with the geology of the region.

Following are some samples of the Habitants infrastructures in Zagori:
