Visitors are charmed by the green landscape, with hills and canyons. The villages are almost indistinguishable because of the dense vegetation. Each of the Pogonisian villages has something different for visitors. The tourist development of the area is absent, which is why one has the feeling that goes back in time. The villages combine nature with history, old churches, stone bridges, traditional settlements with exquisite architecture. Unlike other areas of Epirus Pogoni shows no uniformity in its settlements. Each exploration is a new surprise. The architectural village style combines the elements of stone (mostly gray) and wood deriving from the  agricultural and livestock development of the area. The mansions are mainly two floored with patios surrounded by high stone fences with large wooden, double gates and witness the economic boom experienced once in Pogoni.
