Other Site Characteristics

The examined area lies north of the town of Ioannina, in the region of Zagori. It was established as a National Park in 1973. The core zone comprises the Vikos gorge which is about 10 km long and has vertical rocky cliffs many hundreds of metres high. It begins between the villages Monodendri and Koukouli and ends near the village of Vikos. At the bottom of the gorge runs a torrent that, near the exit, becomes a permanent river (Voidomatis). The peripheral zone is larger and includes the Aoos ravine, the area of the villages of Mikro Papingo and Megalo Papingo, as well as a narrow zone around the Vikos gorge. The ravine of Aoos lies between the mountains Trapezitsa and Gkamila and is formed from the River Aoos. It begins very close to Konitsa and is 10 km long, 8 km of which are included in the National Park. The northern side of Gamila consists of vertical slopes and high peaks rising above the Aoos ravine. Small mountain streams run from the peaks down to the River Aoos. In the area, there is also an interesting small valley called "Laka tou Tsoumani" and, higher up, a small permanent mountain lake called "Drakolimni". Various types of vegetation cover the examined area. There are riparian forests of Salix, Alnus, Populus and Platanus, sclerophylous schrubs and woods of either deciduous and coniferous trees or mixed woods. The variability of deciduous trees in the mixed woodland zone is surprising. Ostrya carpinifolia, Fraxinus excelsior, Carpinus betulus, Carpinus orientalis, Juglans regia, Tilia tomentosa, several Acer species (A. campestris, A. pseudoplatanus etc.) and many other trees cover considerable areas. Formations of Aesculus hippocastanum, Juglans regia and Fraxinus excelsior occur in the narrow, warm, humid shaded ravines and abrupt slopes of the beech zone.

4.2 Quality and importance

This region is one of the most important ecosystems because of its rare flora and fauna. The landscape is probably the most magnificent in Greece. The geographical isolation of the area, the relatively small human influence and the great variation of biotopes and microclimatic conditions favour the growth of different plant species. So, the area is a place where many rare plants are gathered and conserved; some of them are considered threatened taxa. The ravine of Aoos remains in nearly virgin condition and in its extensive forests we can find every kind of Greek tree, as well as more rare plants and animals than in Vikos gorge.
