A city that reveals its authentic person through the history, traditions and gastronomic heritage.

Low myriads flights over water from the property, thousands of birds in formations of all kinds, greeting the first light of day. Transcendental landscape like Angelopoulos film. The giant trees chalkoprasina at all along the shore show through the gray, two anglers can anchor are the "ships" do not even think to call it the local boat boat that resembles a bathtub if you do not want to offend them.
Kastoria: A lake like a dream

The bottom full of all sorts spartartista limnopsara. So crowded waters to dive his hand as if you will catch at once. Carps, glyna, sheatfish, platikes, butterflies iliopsara ... Eight species live in the depths of the whole lake. "But if you want real taste," he says Zafiris Mr. Lucas, who fishes here in the last fifty years, "will lecture dowry and pike." The fish of the lake provides a decent survival in 50 permanent fishermen.

However, phosphates of the crop of apples into the lake in some places the mud contaminate the seabed and fish eggs. Five years organic farming will restore the ecosystem to equal, although the water is renewed each spring from the dam that keeps constant the level of expelling the excess water to Aliakmonas. Mr. Zafiris, however, takes an oath that the fish is clean.
