About Dhimitsana

Dhimitsana village has protected status and enjoys a stunning location at the head of a gorge with the Menalo mountains to the east. Cobbled streets, stone built mansions and lovely views attract the visitor for a night or two to relax and unwind.

The Byzantine monastery of Philosophos is west of the town and housed the famous School of Dhimitsana, a secret school where monks taught children Greek during Ottoman rule. Only part of the building is standing now.

Monks also founded the library in 1764 - during Ottoman times it was one of four libraries in Greece, which helped to preserve Greek culture. Today the library has 15,000 rare editions.

Nowadays many of the village's stone buildings have been restored and local specialities can be enjoyed at the village's tavernas.
