Regional Unit of Thesprotia

The Regional Unit of Thesprotia is defined by its stretched-out and wonderful coastline, but at the same time its mountains are known for the traditional feel they exude. Igoumenitsa, a cosmopolitan seaside town opposite of Corfu, is a big port and hub for Greece and the Adriatic Sea.

 

Sivota, one of the most picturesque summer destinations on the Mainland Riviera, is a dazzling seaside village built in a blessed landscape dominated by thick greenery, and hills around a magnificent cove, islands and beaches with emerald waters. Sagiada at the northwestern end of Thesprotia is a town by the Ionian Sea with cobbled streets, churches and archeological sites such as the Sagiada Tower and Strovili, while Filiates is located between river Kalamas and the Greek-Albanian border, near the ruins of Ancient Titani, the Monastery of Giromeri, the folklore museum of Tsamantas and the traditional settlements of Plaisio and Finiki. Paramythia is a village amphitheatrically nestled at the foot of Mount Koryla, overlooking the fertile plains, while the coastal Perdika with its unending olive groves and deep blue seas looks at the bright lights of Corfu that shine from afar every night. Visiting Souli is also worthwhile, a mountainous village similar to a fortress where the brave Souli warriors revolted against Ali Pasha during the 19th century.
