The three-arched bridge Plakida or Monks in koukouli

An other stone bridge, that have visited and have photographed most of the visitors of Zagori, is that of "wafers or Monks."
  Located just before the Gardens to the right and slightly below the road leading to the village, but belongs to the Cocoon. It is a three-arched bridge with jagged ledges, which has a length of 56 m. And joins the two banks of the river Vikos or Vikaki.
The location of the bridge, originally built a wooden bridge from Negadioti Roussi to be able to go the locals in watermill located nearby. This mill unfortunately there today.
The bridge, in its present form, was built in 1814, with a grant of 20,000 piasters by the abbot of the monastery of Prophet Elijah in Vitsa, Seraphim. For this reason named "Monks". The other name, ie "Plakida" began to be used after 1865, when repaired by Koukoulioti Plakidas Alexis and his brother Andrew and later rebuild from Eugene Plakidas 1912, Hood Community in 1927 and the Archaeological Service 1969....
It is one of the few three-arched bridges that exist and harmonious array of three arches, but also the shape that has the surface crossings, contributed to the very successful given the designation "caterpillar in motion."
Your visit to this bridge will surely impress you.
