Litharitsia Park (Ioannina city)

A short distance from the castle lies the Promahona Litharitsia, which roughly translates into “rock fortress.” Commissioned by Ali Pasha in 1800, this impressive fortification was constructed to act as a first line of defence against enemies attempting to breach the castle walls. It was once fortified with canons and other weapons. Today a cafe and restaurant operate within its walls and offer enchanting views over the lake.
