The village of Negades (about 1060 m altitude), rich village of Zagori in the past, with a special local culture, is located 48 km away from Ioannina.
It is built on the oak-covered slope of a hill revealing the absolute harmony of nature and culture. The village has been a compound settlement since 1312, with a significant population increase. During the Ottoman Empire, it developed a remarkable civilization and brought out many benefactors who had traveled to Moldova, Vlachia, Austria and Russia.
The dark-colored houses and the tall mansions around the square remind us today of the years of the village’s peak and create a picture of total harmony with the natural environment.
The feast of the village takes place on the day of the Holy Spirit.
