- The Cave of Perama, Ioannina, is located in the southern hills of Goritsa hill, at the highest point of the center of Perama village, ten meters higher than the middle level of Lake Pamvotis and at an altitude of 480 meters. His feet are washed by Lake Pamvotis Ioannina, which became famous with the legend of Kyra-Frosini and Ali Pasha. Geographic data The flat plain of the basin develops around Lake Pamvotis and is surrounded by successive mountains and highlands. Its highest points are to the northwest, with Mount Mitsikeli (1811 m high) dominating, while the lower ones are east and south. In the center, located between the southern slopes of Mitsikeli, the hills of the city and the hill of Kastritsa, the lake of Ioannina is formed. Around Mitsikeli is Driskos (1278 m) with its eastern ends leading to the valley of Arachthos, Aetorrachi (1078 m.), Which develops between Arachthos and the hills of Avgous, Prophet Elias (1076 m), Megali Tsouka (1173 m above sea level) above Kosmira, Marmara (879 m), Tsouka (781 m high) and Pentalonia (al. 840 meters). The lake was previously communicating through a natural grove with Lake Lapis, in the northwestern part of the basin, which was drained during the 1950s to create the Lapista plain. Many limestone hills form a special landscape, linked to historic sites, such as Castricca, Bizani, Perama Cave and Gardenia Kastri. Geologically, the area belongs to the Ionian zone with limestones dominating. Occasionally, minimum bladder zones are encountered. The main water body of the area is Lake Pamvotis, which flows through several streams of the basin. The climate of the region is that of the mild Mediterranean type, with too many rains, frequent fogs and dry summer. In the mountainous areas of the region the climate becomes more rough with a lot of snowfall in the winter.
