Travel Tips for Ioannina

Municipal museum

by matza

If you continue on around the inside perimeter of the walls, you will come to a large clearing. From here, ascend a cobblestone slope to the Aslan Pasha Cami, a 17th-century school with cells for Islamic scholars. Its mosque now houses the Municipal Popular Art Museum. In summer, it's open daily from 8am to 8pm; in winter, Monday through Friday from 8am to 3pm, Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 3pm. Admission is Dr600 ($1.75).
The mosque was erected in 1618 on the site of an Orthodox church, razed by Aslan Pasha to punish the Christian Greeks for a failed revolt. Entering the mosque, observe in the vestibule the recesses for shoes. The exhibits, which include traditional costumes, jewelry, weapons, documents, and household wares, are grouped around the three major religious-ethnic communities of Ioannina: the Orthodox Greeks, the Muslims, and the Jews.
There's an adjacent minaret, and when it and the mosque are illuminated each night, the scene from the lake is captivating.

You can also get there from the gate of the lake, across from the lake front.

Packing List

by g-shock

Resort The toilets in Greece don't handle paper very well so you have to deposit used paper in a small bin supplied in your appartment. Top tip is to take scented nappy bags to place used paper in, this keeps the room smelling fresh even if the maid misses a day.

Ali-pasha Museum on the island

by StefanosS

Kyra-Vassiliki (=Lady Vassiliki) was caught by Ali-pasha and brought to his harem in 1805, when she was 12 and he was 61. She was Christian, daughter of a rich man of Filiates and one of her brothers became an important fighter of freedom. Old Ali fell in love with her, respected her religion, made a Christian chapel for her in the harem and was bringing to her priests and teachers for her education. She was in touch with some important and well educated Greeks. She was very beautiful and very clever and soon she became a member of the secret Greek revolutionary society Filiki Eteria, but stayed devoted to her master. She had a great influence on Ali and was the only person that could calm up this violent and cruel oldman. She saved many people of death and many times served the revolutionary Greek struggle by changing the mind of her master.

The cathedral of Saint Athanassios

by StefanosS

We know that it existed before the rebellion of Dionyssios the Philosopher (1611) and was saved, but it was burned down in August 25, 1820. The existing church was rebuilt and finished in 1833 by technicians from Vourbiani village near Konitsa. White and black stone dominate to the building.

The style of the church is three-aisle basilica with domes and vaults. The floor is lower than the outside ground. The icon-stand is made of walnut. The dome and the pulpit are decorated with embossed representations of plants and animals as well as others of the New Testament.

Traveller Lady Strangford describes it as the most important monument of Ioannina. Wall paintings were made in 1835 by hagiographers from Kapessovo. They were covered by later paintings of 1901 or even newer ones, but today the original paintings are recovered and restored with archaeological works.

Metochi Ayias Aikaterinis

by mindcrime

The city of Ioannina is full of churches. This one is the metochi(glebe) of the monastery of Ayia Aikaterini on Mount Sinai and has a small church inside.

I spent some time in the inner yard (pics 2-3) until a priest opened the door of the church(pic4) for me and took some pics inside (pic 5).

At this metochi during greek-turkish wars of 1897 and 1912-13 many Greeks found refuge due to the privilege that the monastery had. There was also a hidden storehouse with guns for the greek rebels.
According to a sign on the wall during the WWII, when the Nazis were in town 2 greeks raised the greek flag on the bell tower. It was febraury 21, 1943, 30 years after the town’s deliverance from the turks so they just wanted to make fun of the Nazis. Brave ones for sure but I don’t know what happened then.
