Pelka a.k.a. Pelekanos, Kozani: Pelekanos is a small village in the municipality Voio, West Macedonia periphery, Greece. With a population of 527 as of 2001, it is set at the foothills of Mount Askio. The Byzantine historian Procopius mentions the location as the Justinian I's fortress of "Pelekon". Ruins of the fortress can be found in the surrounding area to this day. During the early 20th century, the region became relatively poor and economically isolated. A significant part of its population emigrated to the larger cities of Greece, and other countries such as the United States and Australia. Today, the village is known for its red wine production and also as the filming location of Glory Sky that participated in the 1963 Cannes Film Festival.
