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.

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.

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.

Nafplio, one of the most historic and beautiful cities in Greece

Nafplio, one of the most historic and beautiful cities in Greece

The lovely little town of Nafplio is situated in the lush Argolida prefecture, which in ancient times was once considered the very center of Greece. Unfortunately though, from about 1600 to 1100 B.C, under the rule of the Mycenaeans, it gradually declined. After that, the Dorians came along and controlled the fate of the region until the conquest of the country by the Romans. When you are there, you may feel like immersing yourself in its history by burrowing into its past. Take time to see some of the sites, whether you are climbing up the 857 steps to the Venetian fortress of Palamidi, which crowns the city, or wandering round the battlements of Acronafpia. Then pop over to the Bourtzi, the fortified islet pictured, afloat in the middle of the bay. You will soon discover a new sight or sensation coming across your path every minute of your walk, for Nafplio is full of the joy of life. While strolling you will discover the quaint little restaurants on the waterfront, the open-air cinemas, the bars and the music that take you closer to the people, the sea and the land. In Syntagma Square, you may also want to check out the Archaeological Museum with its finds from various periods and frescoes from Mycenae and Assini, housed in an imposing Venetian building, while the Folk Art Museum, on Vassilis Alexandrou street which occupies a neoclassical house is also worth a visit as well.

Chios, the island of Greek tradition and local culture

Chios, the island of Greek tradition and local culture

The Town of Chios, which is called "Chora" by the locals, was built in the central east part of the island like all the adjoining in Asia Minor islands. Chios is situated opposite to the peninsula of Erythraia from which is separated with a narrow straight (channel), a position that proves the close connection between Chios and Ionia. Chora is built almost in the center of the east coast and is the most significant harbor in the island. According to archeological finds the island has been inhabited since 6000B.C. Chios town was built by Ions little before 1000 B.C. So, Chora has a history of more than 3000 years time. During this period, Chios enjoyed great prosperity but also a decline. The Town of Chios has a population of about 29000 people and is the largest area of the prefecture, for this reason is considered to be the administrative, spiritual, cultural, educational and business center of Chios prefecture.The harbor is connected coastal with the other two islands of the prefecture, Psara and Inousses, also with the biggest harbors in Athens and Greece generally, and with Turkey. As a result we have a great trading development and frequent journeys and trips both from tourists and residents. Today the Town has kept the basic town planning schedule without big changes during the course of time, with the castle, the harbor, the streets and the settlements. But the destruction of 1822 and the terrible earthquake of 1881, with the general reconstruction in postwar years have ruined the historic architectural physiognomy of the Town. For all its extent, the Town affords a unique opportunity for wandering by feet among the small streets of the settlements and the central arterial roads. In the center of the Town is the famous "Vounaki" square, where the biggest part of the area is taken up by the Public Park. From the center of the square, the "Kenenti" street leads to the official gate of the medieval Castle of Chios. The building of the Castle was at the end of the 10th century and the beginning of 11th in the area of the ancient town and very close to the harbor. By the time the Castle was built and until today is constantly inhabited and has kept the main characteristics of the old castle, narrow streets, many ruins and buildings of various ages.
