All the villages of the region of Zagori are monocentric. The square is the center of the village. It is the boundary that splits the village in half, and in particular, in the area “above the square” and “below the square”. In this square is usually located the main church of the village, the cafes and the school. All the alleys, all the stone-built cobblestone streets lead to the square.
In every square is a plane tree, in all the villages of Zagori. Under the cool shadow, all the cultural events take place, culminating in the feast of the village.
All the meadows are paved, with most of them having benches around and a terrace around the plane tree.
The bridges required great craftsmanship and their construction was undertaken by specialized craftsmen, mostly from the villages of Konitsa and Voio. These craftsmen were called Kiproulides from the Turkish word “kairopi”, which means bridge.
