Without storeys but on a variety of distinct parallel and connecting levels. The visitor moves along mountains, houses, caves, churches, and alleys, following a non-circular but endless course, ingeniously devised and arranged. They cover twenty four centuries of Greek history (from 500 BC), with an emphasis on the modern history of Epirus.
