Salamina

Salamina

Salamina is the homeland of Aiantas and the tragic playwright Euripides, place of residence and establishment of the poet Angelos Sikelianos and host for George Karaiskakis. It is widely known in world history for the largest battle of the ages, made in 480 BC by the outcome of which, won by the Greeks, survived and developed the Greek culture and spread to the West and all over the world.In ancient times, Salamis was known by the names Pitiousa (Pitis the tree pine), Skiras (from hero Skiron) and Kychreia (from Kychrea). The island is also known since ancient times with the name Koulouris, from the Cape "Kolouris akra" (now Punta), in which was built the ancient city and the port of the 4th century BC. Today, the island offers culture, together with the municipality, various cultural associations.

Alonissos - The Story of a Βeautiful island

Alonissos - The Story of a Βeautiful island

Today Alonissos took this name in the early years of the liberation of Greece and is not the same as the ancient Alonissos. The island in ancient times was called Ikos, while the neiborhood island  to the north, Kyra Panagia, was probably called Alonissos by the ancient Greeks. The island's history is lost in the Paleolithic era, when it is probable that it was connected to the other islands and Thessaly. Tradition says that Cretans led by the mythical hero Stafilos made colonies in Peparithos (current Skopelos) and Iko. This colonisation became in the 16th century BC during the Minoan naval in the Aegean Sea. In that time, begins the cultivation of olives and vines. The Minoan colony takes later a Mycenaean character. The Mycenaean city is located in today Kokkinokastro, on the east coast of the island. At the end of the Mycenaean era, on the island come the father of Achilles, Peleus, and stays until the end of his life. According to tradition, in the island was found the tomb of Peleus. Historically, however, it is clear that in the geometric times is found Iko under the authority of Dolopes. The Dolopes appeared to be a part of the great race of the Pelasgians. After a period of time, they became dangerous and evil pirates of the Aegean. To deal with them, later, the Athenian fleet under the command of Cimon moved to the island, who routed them and annexed the islands to Athens. Thus, in 476 BC, the island joins the first Athenian Alliance. In the classical era, Ikos must have two cities (the geographer Skylax, 5th century BC, called it dipolin). At that time the island is famous for the cultivation of vines and fine wine. The wine was exported in jars, which are one of the two handles bearing the inscription IKION. At this time it appears that the location of the island is very important. This is confirmed by the number of ancient shipwrecks, which have been identified in the region. This important position has made the island base of the Athenian fleet struggles against Philip. In 190 BC the island was conquered by the Roman fleet. We have almost no information for the history of Iko until the capture of Constantinople by the Franks in 1204 AD, when the island and the adjacent islands came into possession of the Franks. Along with Skopelos, Alonissos is an alternating conquerors. After the conquest of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453, the islands were obtained by the Venetians. They remained Venetian until 1538, when the Turkish fleet under Barbarossa Chairedin imposed on the Turkish authorities. During the revolution of 1821 and the first years of liberalization of the Greek nation, the Greeks resorted to Alonissos from various parts of Greece. They, along with the natives of the island, compose the present population of Alonissos.

Kefalonia, an island with a long history

Kefalonia, an island with a long history

Kefalonia has been inhabited in an organized manner since the 10th century B.C. According to the historian Thoukidides, as early as the 5th century B.C. it was divided into four distinct and autonomous states that comprised the "Kefalonian Tetrapolis" (Sami, Krani, Palli, and Pronnoi). The names of the four city-states, according to myth, were derived from the names of mythical Kefalos four sons. Significant findings from archeological excavations in the area prove that it has been inhabited since prehistoric times and that it was an important Mycenaean Center. Excavations to date point to Kefalonia as the undisputable center of the Mycenaean Era in the western island region of Greece. This reasonably associates the island with the ongoing archeological research for the geographical location of Homeric Ithaca. Findings at the Drakena Cave in Poros prove human existence at least 6000 years B.C. and use of the cave as a place of worship.The most significant archeological find however is located at Bortzi near Tzanata village. It is a vaulted tomb of the Mycenaean Era that was excavated by archeologist L. Kolonas in 1992. The tomb has a diameter of 6,80 m. and is the largest and best preserved such tomb in western Greece. The excavation finds include seals, pottery, golden jewelry and copper tools. The discovery of the tomb proves the existence of a significant Mycenaean Center and strengthens the argument that this was the location of Homeric Ithaca. Other significant sites of archeological interest include the Temple of Apollo or Poseidon on the location of St. Georges chapel in Skala dated to the 6th century B.C., and the Roman Villa in Skala with its fabulous mosaic floors. Like the rest of the island, southeastern Kefalonia came to know many conquerors in the course of its history: Romans, Francs, Venetians, Russians, Turks, French, and the British - until 1864 when Kefalonia along with the other Ionian Islands was reunited with Greece.

The Panagia Gremiotissa. The view is panoramic. The whole village is poured on her feet forward.

The church Gremiotissa is of Byzantine architecture and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The tradition explains why people of Ios built the church in the cliffs on top of the hill: The image of the Virgin Mary with the Christ, which is now in the church, was once on the Bay Mylopotas in rocks and lit by a candle.
