The village is an old, traditional settlement (since 1361) with many remarkable buildings of the 18th and 19th century. It is situated on a relatively short distance (35 Km) from Ioannina, almost on the new country road which connects West with Central Zagori, and ensures easy access to western places (Papigo 22 km, Aristi 12 km), as well as in the most remote villages in the east (Tsepelovo 25 km, Negades 15 km).

It is one of the beautiful traditional villages of Zagori, with important sights in the village, (Labriadios School, Monastery of Evagelistria (1793), Monastery of Ag. Paraskevi (1750), Temple of Ag. Dimitrios (1793) etc), as well as in the wider area (Monodendri - Vikogs gorge 6 km, Kipoi Bridges 9 km).

In Ano Pedina it's worth to visit:
The monastery of fortress architecture of Evagelistria, in the entrance of the village, which was built at 1786, with wonderful wall painting and important heirloom (pictures, holly books etc). Watch the service in the catholic of the monastery which is open to the public even until today. The monastery celebrates at the 25th of March, with celebrations taking place in the square of the village.

Walk for about 30 minutes, until the monastery of Saint Paraskevi, 1 km away from the village, which offers great view to the mount Mitsikeli. The monastery, which is on the path to Monodendri, was built at 1750 and has its wall paintings, fencing and old basin preserved. In the 26th of July, a celebration takes place.

Moreover, you are encouraged to visit, in the village, Saint Dimitrios (1793), with a nice carven iconostasis of the 19 century, in the square of the village, Saint Georgios and the assumption of the Virgin.

You can also visit the wonderful stone-built old grade school with the rare writings of the library of Neofitos Doukas.

In a distance of about 500m from the one edge of the village, Southeast, in the gorge, lies "Kaliotripa" a bottomless well, where the legend has it that kids used to throw stones waiting vainly to listen to their sound while reaching the bottom. It is a chasm, but not the only one, in the area which was created due to the erosion of limestone from the water. The path to "Kaliotripa" is not evident but you can ask Mr. Kostas Xanthos that runs a restaurant at the entrance of the village. He may find a way to guide you until there.
