I believe it is one of the few places left in Greece where people are dressed in traditional costumes. The older women of course wear theirs, mostly during the weekends.
Locals speak a Vlach dialect which sounds like Latin.
Through the whole central square there are benches where locals gather for their daily gossip, and exchanging the latest news
Metsovo is a Vlach village. The Vlachs were nomadic shepherds thus the village is popular for its dairy products. Here one can find excellent quality of butter and cheese of exceptional aroma and taste. Metsovo is famous for Metsovone and Metsovela its remarkable cheese and wine making industries.
