Cobbled streets and footpaths interconnect the rest of the village. The provincial capital is the town of Ioannina. The population of the area is about 3,700, which gives a population density of 4 inhabitants per square kilometre, compared to an average of 73.8 for Greece as a whole.

Zagori is an area of great natural beauty, with striking geology and two national parks. The 45 or so villages of Zagori were interconnected by mountain roads and traditional arched stone bridges until modern roads were opened in the 1950s. The stone arched bridges were built by benefactions from expatriate merchants in the 18th century and replaced older wooden bridges.
