Kastritsa

Traces of early Palaeolithic age communities (20,000 years ago) were discovered at the Kastritsa cave, on the northeastern bank of the Pamvotida. The region was settled until the early iron age. The surviving section of the castle at the top of the hill (giving the locality its name: Kastritsa) belongs to the strong fortification of the end of the classical age, which has been identified by some experts as Tekmona, a city of the Ipirote tribe of the Molossi. Kastritsa was abandoned in the 6th century AD.
