What else to see
Ancient Village of Vrachonas
Abandoned traditional settlement with about fifty houses dating back to the 18th-19th century. Most of them are two-storeyed with vaulted structures on the ground floor made of stone of the area. To the west of the settlement there are ruins of a small acropolis of prehistoric times, which is essentially the only example of a fortified prehistoric settlement in the broader area of Thesprotia. Vhrahonas was the site of the original settlement of the village of Syvota and flourished during the past century. Its inhabitants were engaged in livestock farming.
An ancient settlement on the eastern slopes of Vrachonas, surrounded by a polygonal wall, is situated in a naturally fortified position, from where the bay of Plataria was controlled. There is a hiking trail (lasting about one hour) starting from Syvota, passing through the Ancient settlement of Vrachonas and ending, passing from the ruins of the settlement, to the acropolis of Polyneri.
