Prehistoric site of Vitsa-Monodedri

Between the villages of Vitsa and Monodendri lie the remains of a settlement belonging to the Mollosian tribe. Remnants of the Mollosians have been found extensively throughout the wider Epirus region and this site is believed to date as far back as the 9th century BC. The site consists of the ruins of residences as well as two graveyards. Weapons, jewellery and pottery were found buried along with the remains of over 150 people. The artefacts are displayed in both the Archaeological Museum of Ioannina and the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
