Pournia of Konitsa


Located 28km away from Konitsa we meet the village Pournia. In the past, there were three smaller villages in the area, called Staritsa, Selou and Anargyron. The village had its name from the first small village due to the wheat fields all over it. In 1928 it was renamed to Pournia, because it was considered that the word Staritsiani was a foreign word, probably Slavic. The name Pournia was borrowed from the so called location, west of the village, and it means an area with a lot of sloes, which are called pournies. It is not known when it was founded for the first time Pournia. However no one doubt that it was the continuity of another village, which was called “Trapia”. This village was built in the same place of where is today Trapias. The residents of the village believes that current Pourniotes are descendants of the Aries population. Trapia was one of the biggest villages of period, with 300 families and 1.200 residents, who worked in farming and building. The plague however (14th - 16th century) forced them to abandon the area, and the village was desolated. Today the residents of Pournia are pensioners and lumberjacks working for the forestal cooperative.
