Epirus, a rugged and mountainous region, lay on the periphery of the ancient Greek world. It was inhabited by Greek tribes and home to the sanctuary of Dodona, the oldest ancient Greek oracle, and the most prestigious one after Delphi in Central Greece.

Epirus covers areas of both Greece and Albania. It lies between the Pindus Mountains and the Ionian Sea, stretching from the Ambracian Gulf in the South to the Bay of Vlorë in the North. The largest city in Epirus is Ioannina, seat of the region of Epirus in Greece, with Gjirokastër the largest city in the Albanian part of Epirus.

In the forthcoming posts I will write about the most interesting places in the Greek part of Epirus.
