Kastoria. Macedonia. Greece. View of the south west side of Kastoria, a picturesque lake town in mountainous North-western Greece. Surrounded by impressive high peaks, Kastoria is set idyllically on a hilly wooded peninsula stretching into the Lake Orestiada, with an attractive tree lined waterfront lined with chic cafes. Kastoria is an old historic town with ruins of the city walls of Emperor Justinian built in 535 to keep out invading armies still existing. Its narrow streets have many 17th and 18th century mansions and more than 50 Byzantine and medieval churches, dating from as far back as the 9th century are found throughout the town.
