The visitor can visit some important sites such as the fortified settlement of Polyneri (Koutsi) which is located on the eastern side of mount Vrahonas, overlooking the coastal valley of Plataria.

There is no historical evidence or written sources informing us of the fortified settlement’s course through history. Its establishment probably dates back to the 4th century BC, alongside the creation of the majority of settlements in Thesprotia; it survived during the Hellenistic period and was -in all probability- destroyed by the Romans in 167 BC, together with the other cities of Epirus. The settlement covers a surface of approximately 5.5 hectares and is surrounded by a strong polygonal wall on its eastern and part of its western sides as well as on the accessible parts of its northern side. The main gate was located on the west and it was protected by a robust rampart.
