Additional historical, cultural and touristic data

  The museum of folklore and the museum of water power, both located in Anthohori, that exhibits a watermill, "nerotrivi" (= a machine used for harvesting the water power in order to better clean clothes, rugs, etc) and "mantania" ( = a machine that uses water current as fuel to weave clothes) that operate using the water from "Rema Rona" (= Rona stream). It is a representative example of the use of water power and an example of the technology of the pre-industrial era that people used to fulfil their need for food and clothing. The church of St Theodor is also very interesting. The priory of Red Stone (gr. Kokkini Petra) is located on a lush slope of Peristeri, to the right of the road that goes from Anthohori to Metsovo and at a distance of 3.5 km. The priory was built in the early 17th century, was renovated in 1732 and was decorated in 1765. The priory has suffered many damages and pillages throughout its life. Nowadays, only the church and the renovated dorms have survived and a big stone fence surrounds it. There are paths that lead from Anthohori to St Elisaios, to the dairies and from there to the Tsoukarela (alt. 2249), the peak of Peristeri after a 4 hour drive. The path is signposted and is part of the international E6 path. Another one, is an old but full of beautiful greenery path that leads to the village of Anilio, the Mpagiano forest and the Kranorema faucet. The route doesn't have any signs and the time that it takes to reach your destination is 2 hours. There is a crossroad at a distance of 3km from Anthohori that leads to a poorly made road that passes through Gerakani and leads to Mikro Peristeri.
