Andros - The Story of a multifaceted island

Andros - The Story of a multifaceted island

Τhe name of the island most probably originates from General Andros from Crete, legendary colonizer of the Minoan times. Archeological excavations prove the existence of developed settlements, dating back to Mycenaean times or even earlier. The island becomes historically known during the Geometric period (9th-7th century B.C.), as it is proved by traces of a settlement found in Zagora, at the south-western part of the island, close to Zaganiari. The capital of Andros island, during the classical times, was Paleopoli. The prosperity during that period is shown by the big production of coins. Relevant findings together with Hermes of Andros statue are exhibited in the Archeological Museum in Hora. In 7th century B.C. Andros island participated with Chalkideans to the colonization of Chalkidiki and coastal areas of Thrace in northern Greece.Andros, following with the rest Aegean islands the fate of continental Greece, consecutively fell under Roman, Frank and Ottoman occupation. Dating back to 11th century, Byzantine style churches are found around the island, like Taxiarchis in Ipsilou, Melida and Messaria and Kimisi Theotokou (Assumption) in Mesathouri. In the 14th century, the "Agias Monastery" (Zoodochos Pigi) was built near Batsi, while Agios Nikolaos monastery was founded in 1560 and rebuilt in 18th century. Panachrantou monastery was founded in mid-17th century. At Agia Triada (Holy Trinity) in Korthi, a school has been established in 1813, before the Greek War of Independence against the Ottomans. It was founded by Samuel Plasimis and it incorporates a separate building, serving as the teachers house and library. On May 10th, 1821, Theofilos Kairis declared the War of Independence, thus marking the starting point of the islands recent history, during which Andros reached the peak of its economic prosperity, thanks to its ships. It is worth noting that Andriot Dimitris Moraitis initiated Greece-North America line in the beginning of the 20th century, while Andros was in 1939 second to Piraeus regarding ship registration.

Parga, a heavenly place

Parga, a heavenly place

Parga, this divine land, attracted the attention of gods and daemons. The icon of Mother Mary along with the multiple memories of fleeing the settlement of Paleoparga, situated at the facing mountain called Petzovolio, to the cave outside the castle, convinced the inhabitants to settle on the rock, where today the castle stands. Loved by the virgin Mary, and earlier by Mars, the period of her free life will end on the 15th of April 1819. Archeological finds, written scripts of the past and legend confirm that human activity was present in this region from antiquity.The Neolithic flint stone that was found in an olive plantation, the domed shaped Minoan grave found on the property of Souida, the ancient wall segment found outside the grounds of the Venetian castle along with a foundation stone which constituted part of an ancient dock on the western side of Valtos bay, which unfortunately was covered by rocks to build a marina, the rectangular shaped graves on the road close to Anthousa, all undoubtedly prove the existence of human civilization in the region throughout antiquity. Byzantine sources first refer to Parga in 1337 and most likely refer to the older settlement of the castle and not Paleoparga at Petzovolio. The settlement at its new position will have to deal this many perils during the passing of time. For six years Parga will have to endure the rule of the thief Bogoi (who considered himself as of Alban - Serbian - Boulgarian - Vlahos decent). When he leaves he will request the protection of the Venetians. Their presence will be felt between the 15th and 18th centuries. Throughout this period Parga will be autonomous. The raids and looting from land and sea will not cease during this period. Hairetin Varvarosa will be one of those who will loot her. The situation stabilizes from the late 16th century to the late 18th century. Parga develops economically, and becomes a trade center. The old customs office (Dogana) at Valtos still exists up to this day. Dogana also served as a shelter and outpost for the "kleftes" (rebels who fought against the rule of the Ottoman Empire). The water fountain and the house of Boukouvala, along with the well of Androutso bear whiteness this.

Skiathos, the green island of Sporades

Skiathos, the green island of Sporades

The city of Skiathos is the only built-up area of the island. It is built on the southeastern tip of the island in a windless bay which separates the island of Bourtzi in two. It is a relatively new settlement, built in 1829 - 1830 on the site of the ancient city, on two hills situated at the edge of the sea. The ancient settlement was built in 800 BC. The large natural port of the modern city is ideal in shape and in location. This has been a basic element in regulating the life on the island both in the old and in the modern times.In the modern city of Skiathos, the houses are small and simple, with two floors in their majority and built amphitheatrically one next to the other. The streets are narrow without any typical planning apart from few parts in the city. Bourtzi is a small peninsula which separates the port of Skiathos in two. In the past it was a fort, which was established by the Gizi brothers who occupied Skiathos in 1207. It was surrounded by walls battlements and embrasures and on the left and right of the gate there were two round towers.

Kythnos, an island ideal for relaxing holidays

Kythnos, an island ideal for relaxing holidays

Kythnos probably took its name from the leader of Dryops and first inhabitant of the island, Kythnos, although his existence is doubtful. Another possibility is that its name comes from the stem "kyth", which derives from the verb keptho (hide) and refers to the place where one can hide, probably a place with woods, valleys, caves or mines. Recent excavations at Maroulas area have brought to light findings which prove that the island was inhabited during the Mesolithic Period, that is it may have been the oldest settlement of man on Cyclades. In the 13th century B.C., according to Herodotus, the Dryops emigrated to the island, traces of whom are the Cyclopean walls and the temples they have left behind. The Ions were the next to inhabit the island. In the Kinthean Republic, Aristotle refers to the ideal state those peoples had created.During the Persian Wars, Kythnos participates with one trireme and soon after it becomes member of the Athenian Alliance. Later it becomes part of the Roman state and afterwards it is included in the Aegean Theme by the Byzantines. During the Venetian domination it is conquered by the noble Marko Sanoudo and it is called Thermia, because of its hot (therma) spring waters. Then it comes under the rule of the Castelli family and later on the family of Gozadini. It remains under the rule of the family even after the looting of the pirate Barbarossa (1537), because of the peace treaty that was signed between the Turks and the Venetians, while during the Russian-Turkish war it is conquered by the Russians. In 1827, the island is called Kythnos again and takes part in the fight against the Turks. During the reign of Othona, rebels and political prisoners were exiled to Kythnos. In 1862 rebels from Syros came to the island to free the prisoners and clashed with the government’s army at the bay of St. Irini. The outcome of the clash was the repression of the rebels and the death of the rebels Leotsakos, Moraetinis, Scravelis and other exiles. Today, the people of Kythnos are in tourism business, without having abandoned other occupations such as agriculture and fishing. They offer to the visitor the perfect combination of the Cycladic scenery, the crystal clear waters, the local products (meat, dairy products, fruit, vegetables) and the fresh fish out of their own fishing boats.
