Ampelohori

It is located on the NW side of Tzoumerka and borders with Pramanta, Raftanaioi, Katsanohoria and Chouliarades.

Ampelohori or Skloupo as it was once named is a picturesque village surrounded by junipers, ferns and vines. It features remarkable examples of traditional architecture, such as the church of St Nicolaus that is located to the west at an altitude of 1,100m and the chapels on the surrounding hills, the stone houses, the school and the community office and the stone picturesque stores of the village.

If you take a stroll in the village you will be impressed by the many cobbled streets, the bridges and the watermills and the paths that lead to the houses of Politsa, of Afrozoum and Alon Vret, of Stani, of Steno, of Papalia and of Kseropigado. The old barns and aqueducts, the terraces with the vineyards and the sheepfolds, the ruined watermill of Kitsos, the lovely house of Mpalomenos and the famous bridge of Politsa make up the beautiful village of Tzoumerka Mountains. The village feasts on July 26, when St Paraskevi celebrates.
