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.

Lemnos, the island of Hephaestus

Lemnos, the island of Hephaestus

According to the mythology, the Jupiter in his conflict with the Ira, flew his son Ifaistos from Olympus mountain in the ground of Limnos. Ifaistos installed there his laboratory and taught the art of metallurgy in the residents of the island. Another important fable of the island refers to the first king of Lemnos, Thoas. Thoas, son of god Dionyssos and Ariadnis, married to Mirina from Iolkos and had a daughter named Ipsipili. In his years, the women of island neglected the adoration of Venus so she punished them with an intolerable bodily stench. Their spouses brought concubines from the Thrace and their women for revenge killed all men by throwing them from the cape Petasos. When the anger of Venus calmed down, Jason with his Argonauts came to the woman-handled island.Here in Anemoessa Limnos, the Queen Ipsipili entertained the Argonauts, and in order to honor them she set up prizes and organized games. The first Demigods Pentathletes were Telamonas, Lygkeas, Zitis, Kalahis and Pileas. Pentathlon became an Olympic Sport since 708 BC in the 18th Olympic Games. The unique place of the island in the North-East Aegean opposite Ellispontos determined his historical course. Limnos was colonized occasionally by Sinties, Kares, Cretes, Minies and Pelasgous. The archaeological hoe determines the way that the island had been populated since middle Neolithic Age. The most important prehistoric settlement is Poliochni. It was founded at 4th millennium BC and developed into a fortified state – the oldest perhaps in Europe – with urban structure and important culture, with the first democratic chamber of deputies. In Poliochni, on September 17 1994, the agents of Aegean, invited by the Ministry of Culture, 70 personalities from a lot of countries of the world, persons of science, Politics, Actors, Philosophers, men of Art and Intellect, decided and signed the Statement of Poliochni, gazing the immense light blue sea and they nominated the Archipelago of Aegean as Cultural Park of Europe. Limnos, as well as the neighbouring Samothrace, is connected with the mystic adoration of Kaveires, sons of Hephaestus. Remains of Kaveires’s holy have been found in Northeast Island. Few kilometres southern has been discovered Hephaestia, a city dedicated to Hephaestus that flourished in 5th century BC.

Ithaca, an island tradition and history

Vathi, which is protected from the winds in the homonymous bay is the islands capital. At the southern part of the island, 5 klm. away from Vathi, the visitor arrives at Perahori, a mainland community. To the northern part of the island there are two roads. The first one goes through Anogi, a mountainous village on Mount Nirito whereas the second, parallel to the coast, goes through Lefki, picturesque village 13 klm. from Vathi.Ithaki has been inhabited since the Neolithic period (4000-3000 BC) and since the following millennium (3000-2000 BC) there are organized settlements on the island as witnessed by the ruins of settlements, streets and walls found in Pilikata area and the finds in Loizos Cave. The origins of the islands first inhabitants are unknown. In the beginning, the population was gathered at the northern part of the island and, around 1500 BC, people move towards Vathi. This transfer is the beginning of a prosperous period in the islands life. The state of Cephalines is founded, having Ithaki as capital and including the surrounding islands and part of the neighbouring mainland coast.

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. Most residents deal with tourism businesses to invest more and more to improve the service to Guests services. There are many hotels and many apartments. With the effort of the State, Municipality and the residents, Sifnos is trying to improve the infrastructure and the living level.
