Cultural heritage

The Folklore Museum of Metsovo is housed in the mansion of Baron Michael Tositsa. The famous building is one of the most beautiful of Epirus. The exhibits are representative of creative craftsmanship and the art of weaving and wood carving. The museum briefly tells the local history of Metsovo. Wooden carved furniture, embroidery, traditional costumes, textiles, and utilitarian objects are just some of the exhibits, while in one of the floors the office of Evangelos Averoff Tositsa is still preserved.

In the center of Metsovo lies the Averoff Gallery which operates since 1988. It is housed in a distinct building of traditional architecture that preserves and exhibits the works of important Greek painters, printmakers and sculptors. A remarkable sample of its rich collection is “The burning of the Turkish flagship by Kanaris” of Nikiforos Litra.

On July 26, in honor of St. Paraskevi, after the procession, women dress in traditional costumes of Metsovo, and perform traditional dances and songs in the courtyard of the church. A little bit later, on August the 15th, in the central square of Metsovo, people organize festivities with folk songs and dances. Participation is always free.
