Back to the past of the Hotel
The complex where the Papigo Towers Mountain Lodge is situated, is not only in harmony with the traditional architecture and landscape of the area but has also a long history.More Information
It consists of two buildings, one of which dates back to the early 19th century and is a living monument to the traditional architecture of Zagorohoria and, more generally, to Epirus during the Middle Ages. Its renovation was completed in 2007, after a great effort and dedication of the owners. Together with the second building, which was based on wood and stone, constitute a particularly majestic residential complex in the Pindos .
The unique landscape
Zagorohoria are located in a mountainous and extremely inaccessible area of northwest Greece, which has resulted in immigration starting too early here as well as in the rest of Epirus.
Already in the early years of Ottoman domination, mainly male members of the family migrated to seek a better future abroad and settled mainly in the Danubian areas, but also in Vienna, Moscow, Leipzig.
Over the years, and after hard work, most of them became wealthy merchants, who never forgot but instead benefited their homeland.
Combined with the privileges granted by the Ottoman administration during the Middle Ages, the region experienced enormous economic and spiritual well-being, as illustrated by the impressive and elegant human creations, such as the large stone-built bridges and cobbled streets, the schools, churches and majestic mansions, which remain unchanged over time and form the uniqueness of the present landscape.
