Tsepelovo situated in altitude 1200 feet seems like a proud rigging the granite massif of Tymfi. Tsepelovo is dominant and an integral member of Zagoria and is the largest of the44 villages. Located in the center of the national park of Northern Pindos, 45 km away from the airport of Ioannina, 120 km from the port of Igoumenitsa. Nature generously gave to this place, excess beauty beauty and the people who lived here were competing in the nature of artistry. Tsepelovo has a remarkable tourist infrastructure with many options and choices in accommodation, food and fun.
Wandering around the village by clicking on the footsteps of generations who lived and worked in this place we will find houses that survived the time (Radou mansion now Bourbon, the Volos now Ferentinos, Liapis, Papazoglou, Kontofoti Tsoumani currently etc.) Stone built roads (streets) lined radically converge in the central square where in the past but also in the present is the benchmark events and social occasions like the feast of the fifteenth of August weekend. Right of central church is Tsoufleio pharmacy and the grave of poet John Vilaras. Tsepelovo is the birthplace of Constantine Radou which has inspired the idea of founding the Philiki Etaireia, is the birthplace of national benefactors Tsoufli Anastasiou, John Dumas and George Bika in, and the family Demetrious and Marika Kotopouli.

Our towns and villages are brimming with architectural delights waiting to be photographed outside and sometimes (if you're lucky) inside. All you need is a little local knowledge.
Many historic buildings were not built with the light aspects found with modern buildings. Windows were often small and poky so the light coming through could be in narrow shafts causing chaos for your camera's exposure system. In such cases either point at an area without the light and take a reading knowing the highlights will be overexposed, or shoot a few frames and merge them using a HDR program so you have a balance of highlights and shadows.

Very nice detail from this old town street. I liked the old bricked architecture and the composition created by low POV.
