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.

Sifnos, an island that preserves its tradition

Sifnos, an island that preserves its tradition

The island of Sifnos is a municipality of the Cyclades prefecture and is located in the western Cyclades in the middle of the triangle Serifos - Antiparos - Kimolos. It extends 74t.chlm. It has a population of around 2000 inhabitants and is located 75 miles from Piraeus. According to the legend, Sifnos was the son of the Attic hero, Sounios, whose name was given to the island. In another version, the name of Sifnos derived from the adjective Sifnos, which means empty, which refers to the number of underground galleries of the underground of the island. For Sifnos, history has to give very interesting information. It was first inhabited by Pelasgians and then by the Phoenicians, Kares and Leleges and was named Merope. During the years 3200-3000 BC, in the island developed the arts and commerce. It had a rapid economic boom due to gold and silver mining. Later, it was inhabited by the Minoans, so it was named Minoa. Pottery, found in the areas of Kastro and St Andrew, witness the effect of the Mycenaean civilization. Around 1100 BC, Iones arrive on the island and starts the season named Golden Age of the island with great agricultural development of pottery and trade.At that time, according to Herodotus, the ancient capital of Sifnos, the city, is established in the center of the east side of the island at the current Castle. The new city begins to expand, and from the 6th century begins to be surrounded by a wall. The excavations by the British Archaelogogists School in 1934 - 1938 yielded remains of settlements and graves from the 8th century BC indicating the continued life in the castle. The 6th century BC was the era of great prosperity. Indicative that Sifnos was very rich is that in Sifnos were cut coins around 600 BC, after Aegina but before Athens and Corinth. The most important and best known architectural creation of Sifnian undisputed glory and witness thriving economy is the TREASURE OF SIFNOS, which rebuilt and dedicated the residents of the island to the sanctuary Apollo at Delphi. Later, the island joined the Athenian Alliance. Then came the Romans and then Sifnos followed the  fate of the other islands. Byzantine, Venetian rule in the Duchy of Naxos, and Barbarossa and his Pirates of the looting, and then the Turks until the final release in 1836.Keeping all the scars left by years of history, Sifnos is now a beautiful place with traditional villages with whitewashed houses, beautiful beaches and hills on which perched the spread villages. Today, in Sifnos, powerful economic factor is tourism ever-increasing. Sifnos, especially in the summer, is full of people that longs to taste its beauty.

Kavala, a city that can satisfy the most demanding visitor

Kavala, a city that can satisfy the most demanding visitor

This historical, amazing city located like an amphitheater by the sea, combines all the things that could satisfy the most demanding visitor: mountains and sea, picturesque scenery and modern life, archaeological sightseeing, exciting excursions, cultural activities and tranquillity within nature... That is Kavala! It takes about 2 hours (165kms) to reach it by car from Thessaloniki. It also takes the same time from here to the last European City to the east, Alexandroupolis (174kms).Easily accessible, by all means, air, sea and land, Kavala becomes the perfect destination with its frequent, comfortable communications with the islands of the Aegean Sea, the rest of Greece and Europe. There are international charter flights too, departing from the modern airport, situated 20km outside the city and considered as one of the safest in the Balkans. In Kavala there are available all kinds of public services (governmental services, banks, hospitals, etc.) as well as the characteristic hospitable spirit of its 60.000 inhabitants! Kavala’s journey through history starts approximately in the Homeric era. Thanks to its position, it has always been the focus of attention. Neapolis (new city) was the original name of the city (7th century BC) which was an alien of Athens at the time of Pericles (5th century BC). It was also a very important center during the Macedonian Age. Neapolis was the very first place St. Paul stepped on European land when he came here to preach the Holy Bible and spread the Christian religion. For this reason, during the Byzantine time it was renamed Christoupolis. Its port was an important commercial location, which attracted the interest of the Romans and became the cause of destructive attacks by Goths, Huns, Normans and Bulgarians. During the 15th century it falls into the hands of Turks and remains occupied up to the beginning of the 20th century. After its liberation it becomes a modern city.
