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.

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.

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.
