Metsovo is a picturesque small mountain town that impresses visitors with its wood-and-stone houses and pebble streets. It is known for the traditional way of life of its people, some of whom are still seen in hand-embroidered costumes. Situated in the mountain range of Pindos and surrounded by forests and rivers, it combines the beauty of wild nature with a rare cultural elegance and a rich historical legacy. It has allegedly been scarcely inhabited since ancient times and played an important role in the Greek Revolution.
Metsovo hosts, among many monasteries and museums, the Evaggelos Averof Art Gallery, named after the famous Greek politician who originated from Metsovo. The village is the birthplace of many national benefactors, most of whom left Metsovo to become successful merchants.
