The North Pindos National Park was established in 2005 by the Joint Ministerial Decision 23069 / 14-6-05 and includes within its borders the two National Parks, Vikos – Aoos and Pindos (Valia Calda), eleven areas belonging to the Pan-European Protected Network “Natura 2000” areas, almost the entire area of ​​Zagori, a part of the area of ​​Konitsa and Metsovo and the western part of the Prefecture of Grevena. It is one of the largest land Protected Areas in our country, with a total area of ​​1,969,741 acres, and is one of the most important national and European areas, as it uniquely combines the natural with the man-made environment. The existence of many endemic species of flora, almost all the large wild mammals that live in our country, as well as rare species of birds, give the National Park of North Pindos a special ecological value. The area is also particularly rich in historical and cultural elements. Traditional settlements, stone arched bridges, ornate temples and monasteries, watermills and stone stairs dominate the entire built environment of the Park.
