Eressos, the birthplace of Sappho

Eressos, the birthplace of Sappho

Eressos is one of the most famous towns, known for its history and its beauty, situated to the southwest part of the island. The village Eressos is built four kilometres from the sea, among arid and volcanic mountains. It is a village that maintains its traditional character intact. The wonderful mansions that decorate the village reveal the economic and cultural development of the village.A straight road of 4 kilometres, that passes through the green plain of Eressos with the rich gardens, the abundant waters and the beautiful country houses takes us to Scala Eressou and to its famous beach (three kilometres long) which is the ornament of the area. In the past Sigri had been a port protected by the small islands to its west, from which the biggest is Nisiopi, as well as by the small fortress, which is by the sea. Today it is a very well organised summer resort frequented by many tourists, with many beautiful beaches and fresh fish. The sunset in Sigri is an enchanting and unforgettable spectacle, as we watch the sun "diving" into the waters of the Aegean Sea.

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.

Rhodes, the island of Knights

Rhodes, the island of Knights

Rhodes is the biggest island of the Dodecanese. It lies at the south-eastern corner of the Aegean, opposite the coast of Asia Minor, about 11 miles away. It has an area of 1398 square kilometres, being 79.7 km long and 38 km wide. The city of Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese Prefecture, a group of islands formerly known as the Southern Sporades. The name Dodecanese (Twelve Islands), although finally prevailing, does not correspond to the actual number of islands making up the Prefecture, there being many more than twelve. The medieval town of Rhodes, or the Old town as the locals call it, is a living monument. It is a well preserved centre where many Rhodians live and work. Various projects are currently being implemented and developed by the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Rhodes in aid of the restoration and improvement of the medieval town, which has been designated a world monument of architectural heritage by UNESCO.The fortress town was divided into two parts: The KOLLAKIO or KOLLAKO to the north, including the Street of Knights, leaders, the Palace of the Grand Master (Castello), the official churches of the Order, the Hospital (today’s museum), and other edifices. This area was separated from the rest of the town by inner fortifications, sections of which are still preserved. The BURGH or HORA to the south, with the old market (Socrates Street) and Turkish bazaar around Suleiman’s mosque, and other sites. Hora was the area for the bourgeois, and the Greeks, as well as other nationalities (Jewish, Turkish and others) each lived in their own districts. Dating from 1522 – the start of the Turkish occupation of Rhodes and their settlement within the fortress town – construction began on the newer districts beyond the walls, the so-called Marasia. These took their names from the major churches of the districts Ag. Anargyroi, Ag. Iannis, Ag. Anastasia, Metropolis, Ag. Giorgios Ano, Ag. Giorgios Kato or Kammenos (burned down), and Ag. Nikolaos. Greater Marasi, or Neohori, was developed by the Italians (1912-45) who also constructed the recent buildings of Mandraki city centre. They did not employ the island’s traditional style, but rather tried to echo the walls and fortifications, creating an architectural complex that impresses even now. These buildings included the Prefecture Administration building, the City Hall, the Port Authority, the Post Office, the Bank of Greece, the Aktaion, the New Market, the National Theatre, and the Hotel of the Roses, which now houses the Casino following its restoration (April, 1998). Adjacent to the Prefecture building is the Church of the Annunciation, modelled on the destroyed Knights’ church of Saint John. Opposite the National Theatre is the mosque of Murat-Reis. The visitor may see other buildings of the same period in the area of Neohori: the Teaching Academy of Rhodes, the Girls Orphanage, the Hospital, and others.

Edessa, the City of Falls

Edessa, the City of Falls

Edessa 3000 years of history History & Culture. In 814 B.C Heraclides KARANOS makes Edessa the capital city of the first kingdom of the Macedonians and the fate of the city was identified with the history of Macedonia. Ancient, byzantine but also industrial finds testify the towns' history. Romans, Slavs, as well as Ottomans, pass from its history. On 18th October 1912, the town was liberated and incorporated to the Hellenic state as capital city of the Prefecture of Pella. In 1923 many Asian refugees came to live in Edessa while in the 50 - 60, the "White Coal" (hydro energy), which for centuries had moved mills, workshops, industries and factories, becomes useless. This was the end of the industrial growth of the town.Capital of the prefecture with 18.832 inhabitants. Built on the foot of Vermio mountain, it has beautiful view on the plain, much green, gardens full of flowers and abundant waters. It is one of the most beautiful cities of Macedonia. In 1977, the excavations in Vergina proved that this city has no relationship with the city of Aeges, the ancient macedonian capital, as it was believed in older times. Edessa, as the excavations at Logos proved, was a significant city already since the Hellenistic Times, although its greatest bloom was noticed in the Roman and the Paleochristian Years, fact that is probably related to the existance of Egnantia Street as well as the decline of Pella. The city, which in the 7th century became bishop`s base, was significant even in the Byzantine Times. In the years of the wars of Basil the second (976-1025) against Samuel, the castle of Edessa was captured twice by the Bulgarians, yet it was taken back by the Byzantines in 1018. The sources of that age frequently mention the city by the name Vodena which results from the Slavic word "voda" which means water. In the 14th century, the castle of Vodena was under the domination of the Serbs of Dousan, till, after a siege of eight months, it was underhandedly captured by the Turks. In the years of the Turks' domination, christianity was intense in the city, while in the middle of the 18th century a hellenistic school was founded, where Parasceuas Amfilochios teached, who came from the city of Giannena. In 1782, "Hellenomuseum" and the "Common School", which was a public school, were founded, while the local people were offering money for their needs. In the end of the 18th century, when the city noticed great bloom and the Greeks were of the population, Edessa came to the authority of Ali Pasha. It was liberated with the rest Macedonia in 1912.
