Walking around in the castle of Ioannina is such a wonderful experience. The cobblestone alleys, the mansions that some now have been converted into upscale hotels, the views of the lake, the museums and everything within its walls is simply great. Comfy shoes are a...More

The Ioannina Castle (Greek: Κάστρο Ιωαννίνων) is the fortified old town of the city of Ioannina in northwestern Greece. The present fortification dates largely to the reconstruction under Ali Pasha in the late Ottoman period, but incorporates also pre-existing Byzantine and ancient Greek elements.

With few visitors, I pretty much had this place to myself. Most of the site is open air so I’d recommend visiting on a rain-free day. There is a mix of restored structures as well as ruins. The views overlooking the lake and surrounding mountains...More

This is a pleasant place to wander if one has a little spare time on a visit to the pleasant lakeside city of Ioannina. The old walled castle dominates the area along the lake front at the foot of Ioannina's main boulevard. You will find...More
