Metsovo is a mountainous town of the prefecture of Ioannina at an altitude of 1.150m. Traditional settlement is located at the eastern edge of the prefecture, near the borders with the Prefecture of Trikala, on the northern slopes, between the mountains of the largest mountain range of Greece, Pindos. Its inhabitants are predominantly of Wallachian origin, they are less concerned with agriculture and more with livestock farming. In Metsovo are listed monuments of the Virgin Mary's Monastery, near the Metsovitiko River, the Monastery of Agios Nikolaos south of the town and the Zoodochos springs monastery at the place of Kiatra Rosia (meaning Vlach red rock / lithari). The Folk Museum of the Tositse Foundation (Tositsa) has been operating in the town since 1955, which includes traditional wood carvings, woven and embroidery, golden-colored costumes, decorative and utilitarian items, weapons, coins, agricultural utensils and pictures from 1650-1850. In winter there are organized ski resorts (Karakoli and Politsies), which in combination with the picturesque landscape attract many visitors. Since 1988 the E. Averof Gallery has been operating, where 250 paintings of 19th and 20th century painters are exhibited. According to one view, the word Metsovo comes from Slavic "meskka" (bear) and "ovo" (village).
