description

Visiting Kozani is like travelling back in time: 20-million-year-old petrified tree trunks can be seen in Kastanohoria, Skalohori and Damaskinia, fossilized vertebrates in Tsotili and Neapoli, revealing monuments from the Bronze Age, cemeteries from the Iron Age, archaic towns such as Aiani, settlements from the Hellenistic and Roman ages.  Visit the archaeological sites of Aiani and Pontokomi, the medieval castle in Serbia and take a trip to Kozani during the Carnival.

The area is also known for its typical architectural style, for example the manor houses of Siatista, Eratira, Vlasti and Tsotili.
