    Sidirohori for wild mushrooms

    by EviP Written Jan 2, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    About ten minutes (or 12 klm) outside Kastoria, with direction to the north, on 1080 metres of mountain Vitsi, there is the village of Sidirohori, also called Sistevo until 1928, with about a hundred residents today.

    Entering the village you will meet the sacred, after-byzantine church of Saint- Nickolas built in 1813.

    At the main cafe-tavern of the village, named Sistevo, a rich variety of local mushrooms, carefully collected by the owners are cooked in different ways and provide a extraordinary tasteful experience!

    Odd chapel

    Roadsides in Greece are dotted with small chapels with a burning lamp and a few pictures to honor some saint. Amazingly, this one was not set on the roadside but in the middle of an oat field. I wonder why??
