Think of a small piece of land of about 800m long and 500m wide in a lake. The Islet in the lake of Ioannina is a paradise on Earth in miniature hosting a community of 110 houses and some of the most important Byzantine monasteries (monasteries of Agios Nikolaos of Filanthropinon and Agios Panteleimon). 

This miracle of nature with its cobbled streets, beautiful houses with flowered courtyards and rich religious history is one of the busiest places of the area, as it is visited on a daily basis by many small boats which take visitors to and from the city to learn about its history and taste its fine cuisine.
