Samarina met its flourishing days at the end of the 18th sentury and during the 19th. Its prosperity was based on several activities, but mostly on cattle-breeding,small industry, trading and arts. The main financial source was cattle-breeding (the Samarinians counted 80.000 goats and sheeps) as also the wood industry(Valia Kirna (the valley of the Demons)in the past consisted a source of aqueous energy as there were five watersaws working necessary for the carpenters of the time).
The Samarinians hagiograpers of mobile paintings , were giving remarkable works of art not only to the surrounding area but to entire Greece too.
