The Tsotili town

Tsotili is located in an altitude of 840m and constitutes the administrative and economical center of the homonym Municipality. However, in earlier times, Tsotili was one of the most significant commercial centers of the Western Macedonia. The Tsotili’s great market was widely known. It was somewhere in 1833, when the weekly market of Tsotili, known as the ‘’Kari Pazar’’, has been established by a soldanic announcement. This market performed every Saturday and was widely attended by the inhabitants of the area. It is not accidental that all paths in Voio eventuated to Tsotili; commonly called the ‘’pazarostrates’’. The area’s and the ground’s structure is diversiform, mountainous, hilly with numerous gorges and forests. The entire area comprises one of the most beautiful parts of the Kozani Prefectures, due to its wild nature and the preservation of its traditional villages and buildings.

The stone bridges are referred as the symbol of the municipality. They are built in different periods during the Turkey’s domination, scattered at the slopes of Voio Mountain. Each one has its own history, legends and identity. Stone bridges constitute the vivid memorials of the raised husbandry in the Voio area and Pindos, in general. It was then when the mountainous villages were bloomed of life. The Western Macedonia’s traders, with communities across the central Europe, commuted their goods in Greece and Danube, dealing with the thieves skulking close to the bridges. Of course, times have changed, and most bridges are not used any more, however, their memory is kept living. For the majority of the visitors, these bridges are only the reason for performing enjoyable travels in the nature.
