Syros, an ideal place

Syros, an ideal place

The seafaring town! A significant presence in the Aegean. Ermoupoli was born and forged in the flames of the National Revolution of 1821 from refugees who fled Chios, Psara, Kydonia, Kassos, etc., when extensive massacres were perpetrated by the Turks. The Aegean was shocked with the cries of uprooted people looking for a new home. And then, the best shelter was found. Syros! It was the ideal place.The island had nοt been touched by war. It was free and protected by a great European power, France. The first refugees were dirt poor and dressed in rags, but they were rich in experience and knowledge. Very soon, alreadγ ίn the years of Capodistria, the first Governor of Greece, the new town begins a peaceful and productive revolution that will lead it to prosperity. The town was dedicated to Hermes, the god of gainful commerce. Ιη the 19th century the town became the most important commercial and shipping centre of liberated Greece. "Ιn Ermoupolis, Greece was reborn..." Eleftherios Venizelos once said. The economic prosperity of Ermoupoli was accompanied by social evolution and cultural flowering. In the city of Kerdood and Scholarly Hermes as well, a genuine Greek urban class was created for the first time. It generated a lively social and literary activity. Cultural centres, theatres, concert halls, clubs, charitable institutions, printing shops, libraries and a particularly diverse press pushed Ermoupolis forward. The town's name went beyond the boundaries of the Aegean and was heard in the salons of Europe. The radiance of the city's wealth and spirit created the first tourist flow towards Greece.

metsovo, a touristic destination with traditional character

metsovo, a touristic destination with traditional character

Metsovo is one of the most picturesque and traditional towns in Greece. It is built like an amphitheatre at an altitude of 1.156m., on one of the highest peaks of the Pindos range at the junction of Epirus, Thessaly and Western Macedonia. It is the capital of the homonym province and it has a population of 6.000 inhabitants. The first reference to Metsovo was made in 1380 A.D. in the chronicle of the Philanthropinos brothers Proklos and Komnenos. At first, Metsovo used to be a small settlement of shepherds. Later, due to its important geographical location, Metsovo acquired a number of privileges that contributed to its survival and accelerated the development course in difficult times. Such privileges were granted in 1430 A.D. by the Sultan Murat II as a reward for the good behavior of the Metsovite guards of Zygos to the Ottoman trοops of Sinan Pasha, who were heading for Ioannina.Τhe Sultan Mehmet IV renewed the privileges in 1659. Based on these privileges, Metsovo and the surrounding villages of Malakasi, Milia, Anilio, Votonosi, Palia Koutsoufliani (Platanistos) and Derventista (Anthochori) formed a federation, an autonomous, democratic state within the limits of the Ottoman Empire. The privileges granted to Metsovo, with the exception of the Patriarchal Hexarchy that was preserved until 1924, were abolished in 1795 by Ali Pasha. In 1700 A.D., a self-catering Greek school was founded in Metsovo to become one of the most important education centers, staffed with the eminent teachers of that time. Metsovo suffered considerable destruction on March 27, 1854 by the Ottoman troops of Abdi Pasha. This became known as the Grivas disaster. Following the Grivas disaster, Metsovo experienced a unique progress that was attributed to the large number of benefactors, who hailed from the town and offered substantial sums of money in order to contribute to its re-establishment. Metsovo was liberated from the Turkish yoke on October 31, 1912 by forces of the Greek Army and Cretan and Epirot volunteers. Decisive role in the economic and cultural development of Metsovo played the Baron Mihail Tossizza Foundation, established in 1948 by the Baron himself at the instigation and the encouragement of Evangelos Averoff Tossizza. Among the great men of Metsovo are the Metsovian neomartyr Nicholaos (May 17, 1617), the teachers of the nation during the Turkish occupation Nicholaos Tzartzoulis, Parthenios Katzioulis, Dimitrios Vardakas, Tryfon the priest-monk, Adam Tsapekos, the national benefactors George Averoff, Nicholaos Stournaras, Mihail Tossizza, Triantafyllos Tsoumagas, Kyriakos Flokas, Baron Mihail Tossizza, the freedom fighters Dimitrios Ipatros, Anastasios Manakis, Ioannis Gadelos, Apostolos Hatzis, Dimitrios Zamanis and the politician and benefactor Evangelos Averoff Tossizza.

Paxos, the love nest of Neptune

Paxos, the love nest of Neptune

The more northerly part of the harbour, Maneskos, is deeper. Larger vessels are able to dock here. The name Gaios comes from Agios Gaios, who brought Christianity to the island. His tomb is in the sanctuary of the church of the Holy Apostles, where there are some noteworthy frescoes. According to tradition, soil from the tomb has medicinal properties and can be used in the treatment of snakebite. The islands most brilliant festival is on 29th June, when there is a celebration for both the Holy Apostles and Agios Gaios. The Byzantine as well as the Venetian periods promoted development of the islands both economically and culturally. Significant monuments, exemplifying these two periods are found among some island churches, dating back to the palaeo-Christian period, and the Venetian fortress respectively. White and imposing, the hermits cliff takes its name from a monk who lived here in old days, subsisting off the roots which he collected on the mountain. The only harbour on Antipaxi with level land on the shore in Agrapidia. Larger vessels do not moor there, the water being too shallow. The only village, Agrapidia, is set amid vineyards. The beautiful beaches of the island can be reached with speedboats, which every day shuttle to and fro with tourists from Paxi. There are some small tavernas where one can find food and relaxation after a day at the beach. There is a stream of fresh water coming into the sea at Kaloroi Beach. Antipaxi is a place for a quiet, peaceful holiday.Agios Nikolaos: This picturesque small island with its chapel, its old windmill and the ruins of a Venetian fortress built in 1423, occupies a prominent position at the entrance to the harbour of Gaios. The view from here is magnificent. The Monastery of the Panagia is situated on the small island of Panagia which can be seen by the visitor on entering the harbour of Gaios. Each year on 15th August, her feast day, boiled meat is served to the faithful. The rocky seashores and the clear waters are ideal for swimming. The village of Lakka took its name from its position. Its houses are built at a low elevation and close to the sea. The view from the lighthouse is superb. It is worth visiting the Ellinospito, a kind of fort, where the locals sought refuge when pirates came to the island. Similarly of interest is the Ipapandis Church, built in 1774. Renaissance elements can be seen in its ornamentation. One could also visit the Sea Cave of Ipapandis, which is said to communicate with the church and with the Grammatikos Mansion. Longos nestles amidst dense vegetation, which reaches as far as the harbour. The shallowness of the water makes it impossible for larger vessels to dock. The beaches of Levrechio, Marmari, Kipo and Kipiadi are suitable for swimming, windsurfing, and also camping. If the visitor is looking for unspoilt beaches, Fikia and Glyfada are worth visiting. Also of interest is the oil-press of the Anemogiannis family, one of the oldest families of Paxi. The churches of Agios Nikolaos, patron of sailors, and Zoodochou Pigi, have some frescoes of interest to a visitor. Ozias is the islands second largest village after Gaios. Of interest to the visitor are the ruins of the early Christian church of Agia Marina and the rocks with holes in them from the wind, a remarkable natural phenomenon.

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.
