   KASTORIA is a city in northern GREECE in the region of WESTERN MACEDONIA. It is the capital of KASTORIA regional unit. It is situated on a promontory on the western shore of Lake ORESTIADA, in a valley surrounded by limestone mountains. The town is known for its many Byzantine churches, Byzantine and Ottoman-era domestic architecture, fur clothing industry, and trout.
  The Ottoman Turks conquered KASTORIA around 1385, During the Ottoman period KASTORIA acquired a sizeable Muslim population and several mosques and tekkes could be found in the city.
   The city would remain under Ottoman rule (as part of Manastir Vilayet in the late 19th and early 20th century) until the First Balkan War (1912), when Greece took it. The 1913 treaties of LONDON and BUCHAREST incorporated KASTORIA into the Greek state.    Following the end of the First World War the bulk of the Muslim element of KASTORIA's population was transferred to Mustafapaşa, TURKEY during the Greek-Turkish population exchange (i.s.).
