The Beauty Of Grevena's Old Stone Bridges!

They are diamonds of folk art, blending beautifully with their surrounding environment. Sometimes right in front of our eyes, next to modern roads and bridges. Others lost in mythical landscapes that make your mind travel to the eras of elves and fairies.

They are diamonds of folk art, blending beautifully with their surrounding environment. Sometimes right in front of our eyes, next to modern roads and bridges. Others lost in mythical landscapes that make your mind travel to the eras of elves and fairies.

The old stone bridges of Grevena were built by craftsmen, the old Masters of the stones (or "Mastoroi" as they are called in Greek), experienced workers and artists of stone-processing, usually with no architectural or engineering studies. But today their works have a "scent of History", the oldest stone bridge of this collection was built around 1700 A.D.

Mastoroi knew how to build magnificent and lasting structured, some bridges of this collection are still in use.

You can enjoy most of those bridges while doing activitiies with Greek Adventure in Grevena! Our Venetikos A rafting route passes right under the atches of four of those magnificent bridges and our Portitsa hiking program reaches the old bridge that is located at the entrance of the canyon! Another activity, our cayoning at the Kleftis gorge, ends its route under the astonishing Liatissa bridge. And of course, if you are passionate about those stone gems, we can design a custon itinerary for you, to tour all of them!
