Melissourgi

The village of Melisourgi is situated at an altitude of 850 m, at 72 km. from Arta and 65 km from Ioannina.

The village owes its name to its hard-working people, who like the bee (“melissa” in greek) – an exemplary of hard-working creature in the animal kingdom – had to come-up with ways of survival through the hardships of everyday life.

The wild nature with its abundance of water and fir forests, attach a unique beauty to the village. The visitor has the chance to discover one of the most beautiful places of the region with its dense vegetation, its numerous springs and beautiful landscapes. One such sight is the waterfall of “Kefalovryso”, the highest of Greece, at a short distance from the village.
