Emin Aga Inn (Near Melia Village)

Throughout the Louros River Valley in the southern area of the region, there are several preserved inns dating back to when the area was frequently travelled through by caravans and horse-drawn carriages. The most famous of all is the Emin Aga Inn, which acted as the headquarters of the Greek army stationed throughout Epirus during the fight for the liberation of northern Greece from the Turks. After nearly two years of fighting, the Turkish troops surrendered and signed a treaty here, and in 1913, the Greek army liberated Ioannina. The Inn stands near the banks of the Louros River west of the village Melia and today houses the War of 1912-1913 museum.
