Tired of the “metropolis” and the rain, we move to Mavrochori to stay overnight. A small village on the lake facing Kastoria. In the morning, we are rewarded with a beautiful day and so after the inevitable photographs and a nice breakfast we go to visit the outdoor museum of prehistoric civilization of Dispilo, prior to getting back on the road heading south.
Still persecuted by the rain, but at least lucky in that it was not Monday, day of closure of all the city’s museums, we decided to take advantage of the weather to visit first the ethnological museum, which really deserves to be seen, then the cave of the dragon, that has some interesting peculiarities and finally the municipal aquarium that since the rain did not stop, at least gave us a roof for at least another half hour!
Kastoria is a small and quiet city in northern Greece, built on a peninsula on Lake Orestiada at about 700 meters above sea level. Well-known, unfortunately, for the production of fur, it is definitely worth a visit to appreciate the architecture of the old quarters as Dolciò, its more than fifty Byzantine churches and not least, the lake with its nature.
