From Konitsa's southern entrance begins a 4.5km river hike along the Aoös River Gorge to strikingly situated monastery Panagia Stomiou. Begin at the elegant 20m-high, 40m-long single-arched stone Konitsa Bridge, dating from 1870, which straddles the river. After it, a signposted trail becomes a narrow path between the water and a steep bank, and turns upwards through thick forests.
