    Villages

    As Epirus is a mountainous region, the majority of the villages are located in the inland and not along the coastline. Due to its secluded location from the rest of the Greek mainland, Epirus has an architectural style of its own. The villages are small, houses are made of stone and paved paths cross the village center. As it has experienced large waves of immigration over the last two centuries, it frequently happens that some villages have very few permanent inhabitants. The villages of the coastline, facing the Ionian Sea, are also small but they are gradually developing in tourism. The most famous tourist places in Epirus are Parga and Sivota.
