EcoMuseum Zagori was founded to manage the protection and exploitation of the natural and cultural heritage of the area to the benefit of local development. The central principle it is based on is that an area’s monuments should remain in situ as a living testament to a specific era. Here visitors learn about various aspects of social life, production processes and the socio-economic and natural history of the region. At the same time, they are given the opportunity to interpret the spiritual, social and economic evolution of the local population which is directly connected to the natural environment and its effect on the definition of its identity.
