On the south side of Psiloritis, there is an abandoned village, called Nea Vorizia.

72 years ago, the rebels of Petrakogiorgis resisted against the Nazis.

As revenge, Nazis killed all citizens of Vorizia, they burnt the village and forced the last habitants to abandon the place.

After the liberation from the Germans, the government built the new village of Nea Vorizia, a few meters away from the old village.

This village was never habited and the Vorizians built their new village on the ashes of the old.

Nea Vorizia is still there… as a “ghost” village.
