Argolida - Its rich History

Argolida - Its rich History

Argolida was inhabited in the Mesolithic Era (8000 BC) and it was one of the most crucial centers in Peloponnese. During the Neolithic Era, many significant settlements (Lerna, Tirintha, Mikines) were founded whereas in the period of the Brass the whole area flourished and many centers were developed (Midea, Asini, Tirintha, Prosimna). Among them, Mikines was the most glorious one and it gave its name to one of the most splendid cultural periods of the ancient times, the Mikinean period. The whole area was disordered in the 12th century BC by various movements of immigration. As a result, Argos was subjected to Dories it became a Doric center and gradually it subjected other Argolic towns.In the Archaic and in the classical period, there was a common sanctuary in Argolida Ireo whereas in the Hellenistic years the temple of Asklipios in Epidavros became very significant. In 146 BC, the city was conquered by the Romans and it declined. The invasions by Erouloi (267 AD) and by Goth (395 AD) disordered the area for one more time. During the Byzantine rule, Argolida belonged to the authorities of Peloponnese and it was greatly developed. At the beginning of the 13th century it subdued to the Francs and it belonged to Otto de la Ros master of Athens. For certain short periods of time it belonged to the Venetians and finally it subjected to the Turkish (1540). In the Revolution of 1821, its residents participated in some of the greatest military enterprises that took place here. Nafplio had become the temporary basis of the revolutionary government and the capital of the newborn Greek state (1828) until 1834 when Athens became the new capital. Today Argolida is one of the most fertile areas in Greece and a major tourist center.

Santorini, a famous island

Santorini, a famous island

Santorini is an island located in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast of mainland Greece. It is also known as Thira and is the southernmost member of the group of Cyclades islands with a population of 13,670 residents. Santorini is essentially what remains of a massive volcanic eruption that destroyed the ancient settlement existed on the island and led to the current geological caldera. The breathtaking natural beauty, with a dynamic nightlife, have made the island one of the famous tourist destinations. A giant central lagoon is surrounded by high cliffs on three sides. On the fourth side, the lagoon is separated from the sea by another much smaller island called Thirassia. The lagoon merges with the sea in two places in the northwest and southwest. The water in the middle of the lagoon is about 400 meters depth, thus it is a safe haven for all kinds of shipping. All the ports of the island are on the side of the lagoon and there are ports on the outer perimeter of the island. The capital, Fira, is at the top of the cliff and is looking the lagoon.In the island was one of the largest volcanic eruptions has ever seen the planet: the Minoan eruption (sometimes is called the Thera eruption), which occurred about 3600 years ago. The explosion left a large caldera, which is surrounded by volcanic ash and can be linked indirectly to the collapse of the Minoan civilization on Crete, 110 km to the south, from the creation of a giant tsunami. Another popular theory holds that the explosion of Thera is the source of the myth of Atlantis. Santorini was united with Greece in 1912. The major settlements therein are: Fira, Oia, Emporio, Kamari, Perissa, Imerovigli, Pyrgos and Thirassia. Akrotiri is an important archaeological site with ruins from the Minoan era. The island relies on tourism, especially during the summer months. In order  Caldera to continue its being, the island's pumice quarries closed in 1986.

Corfu, the island that fascinated poets and kings

Corfu, the island that fascinated poets and kings

The exceptional geographical position of Corfu determined, from the beginning, the role that the island was destined to play. Crossing point and meeting place of ideas and of human coexistence, melting pot of civilizations, managed to fuse together harmoniously the often-contradictory trends and to exhibit a cultural identity quite unique and different from the rest parts of Greece. The coexistance of Romans and Byzantines with locals, enriched with immigrants from southern Italy and Sicily, Venice and later France, England, Malta and other Mediterranean countries, fused together with Jews and waves of refugees from the Turk-occupied Greece and Crete (especially after the fall of Candia), makes the city a place of exemplary complexness, the multicultural character of which, is reflected on the arts and the lettered, on the social life of the city and suburbs.The inclination of corfiots to the spectacles, the music and the opera is the result of the living history and coexists with the deepest respect for the national and religious symbols. The western style of the buildings and of the artistic expression, of the customs and the musical tradition constitutes the expression of the cultural osmosis of Corfu with the West. A procedure that, despite the predictions to the opposite, left the Eastern Greek Orthodox Dogma untouched, in times that the Eastern Christianity, in her historical borders, was either savagely oppressed or ceased to exit.

Piraeus, the largest port in Greece

Piraeus, the largest port in Greece

Piraeus is situated in the west of the district of Attica, about 5 km from the centre of Athens. Much of Athens's industry is located at Piraeus and the city is a major settlement. The port is a busy transit location for both goods and passengers. Ferries for the islands of Greece leave from the port and it is connected to Athens by the metro line.The area on which Piraeus stands has been inhabited since 2600 BC. The city was originally planned by the architect Ippodamos from Melos, and was built in the 5th century BC. Wall defences were built around the port 493–79 BC. Later, Pericles completed the fortification by building the Makra Teichi (the Long Walls) which protected both sides of the road between Athens and Piraeus. The area went into a state of decline from 395 BC onward, and was only revived in the early 19th century AD. In the intervening period the port was rarely used, except by pirates and invading enemies. The recovery of Piraeus began in 1829, and in 1834 the port was rebuilt using the original plans. During World War II, the port suffered extensive damage from both German, and subsequently Allied, bombing of the harbour and the boats moored in it. When the occupying German army left Piraeus they attempted to blow up the port on their retreat; resulting in its near-destruction. Beautiful Neoclassic buildings, hopefully some of them have been saved, are standing out with their prominence and brightness. Yet these ones among them, which have been reconditioned, are standing firm, proud like, ringed with the glamour of another past. The most distinguished among them is the Municipal Theatre of Piraeus, built in 1884, designed by John Lazarides. It is really an architectural jewel of Piraeus. The building of Ernest Chiller (German architect), built in 1876 which is found at Alexandra square, the Chatzikyriakio orphanage for girls, built in 1883, the N.A.T. office building, the Nursing House of Piraeus, the old Post Office, the building of Metro Station, the summer resort of drink maker Metaxa, the building of the French institute (home of C. Strigos) and a lot of other old buildings at Kastella.

Amorgos - The Island of

Amorgos - The Island of

Amorgos means fresh air, sun, smell from the herbs and an endless view of the bright blue Aegean Sea. You can have this view from almost every single point of your route. Things to be taken into consideration it was not until the mid 1990s that the first proper roads were constructed. These are; a) From Chora to Arkesini southwards, and b) from Chora to Egiali northwards. Before then, the car as a means of transport was of little importance. Donkeys used to be the essential means of transport by land and therefore, a well-designed "system" of cobbled paths used to cross the island and guarantee the transportation of goods to the villages. Despite the fact that nowadays the car has already "invaded" the island, Amorgos remains peaceful and quiet. The traditional paths have mostly been preserved, providing us with amazing opportunities of exploring the island. Even today, it is possible to meet donkeys carrying heavy loads of fresh goat milk from the fields to the villages. It is at this specific moment that time seems to have stopped for a while and an idea of how hard life in Amorgos used to be can be gained. With an altitude of nearly 850 meters, Amorgos offers a variety of different possibilities of exploration. Considering that all this hypsometrical scale is actually completed within a short distance starting from the shore, it is easily understood that certain requirements must be met by anyone attempting such a tour. On the ridges the sun is really merciless. On the high peaks, the whole area can be covered by dense fog within a few minutes, while strong winds usually blow. These hard conditions should not be underestimated in any case. Drinkable water, suitable shoes and a special jacket are necessary. Even in the marked routes, suitable shoes should be worn and drinkable water should be brought along.Below are presented many routes for rambling over the island. Four of these routes go through marked paths (red and white signs with numbers). The "Royal Route" is the route 1, which starts from Chora, goes past the Monastery of Hozoviotissa and continues towards Egiali. This is distance of nearly 16 Kms along the central ridge of the island. It is an unforgettable trip with a view of Naxos, the Small Eastern Cyclades and Ikaria. The route 4 is also wonderful. Starting at Egiali and finishing at Egiali as well, it goes round the whole valley behind the Bay of Egiali. This route goes past the fascinating villages Tholaria and Lagada. The walking time mentioned for each route concerns walkers with medium training and experience. Apart from the routes described below, there are also many other possibilities of exploring the island. For example, there is the route to the high peak of Profitis Helias at Chora (almost 700 meters altitude) or the route to the vertical cliff of Ancient Arkesini in the southern part of the island. There is also the route to the Mountain Korakas, which is the highest mountain of the region. A lot of interesting opportunities for exploration can be found in the Bay of Egiali in the north of the island, such as the remote small bays of Megali Vlichada and Mikri Vlichada which are also suitable for swimming. Whichever route you choose, rambling round Amorgos is a celebration for all the senses.
