Mavrochori (Greek: Μαυροχώρι(οv) meaning "black town"; formerly Mavrobon, Μαύροβον; Macedonian: Маврово) is a village in Greece near Kastoria on the shores of Kastoria lake which was in existence at least from 1380 and is denoted, under the name Mavrobo, in the British Baldwin & Craddock Map of Greece which was published on 1 January 1830 (printed by a printer at 47 Paternoster Row, London).
In the end of the 18th century the patriarch of the Mavrovitis family moved his people from the nearby Krepeni village to Mavrovo in order to avoid a plague pandemic, and it is believed that people were frequently moving between Krepeni and Mavrovo.
