Dymokastro

Dymokastro or Elinokastro or Erimokastro are the most modern names of the ancient coastline position located near Perdika, on a hill that rises over Karavostasi bay. This is the position associated with ancient Elina, a city of Elinoi, a Thesprotian tribe.

The city was organized in the 4th century BC, when it was fortified with imposing walls and towers at intervals, much of which is preserved today.

Elina experienced significant development during the Hellenistic period.

 It was destroyed in 167 BC by the Romans following the fate of other big cities of Thesprotia. However, it was not abandoned, but continued to be inhabited during the Roman period.

The ancient settlement spreads gradationally in three levels, following the shape of the hill, and are defined by fortified enclosures.

The excavations brought to light important findings, many of which are exhibited in the Archaeological Museum of Igoumenitsa.

Dymokastro is an organized archaeological site with large parts of the ancient settlement open to visitors.
