Athens - A Few Words about its History

Athens - A Few Words about its History

The chronicle will take you from the Neolithic period, where according to the archeological findings it is estimated that the first organizing attempts of the city were made, at Pelasgus, by the first habitants which on 1400B.C. began fortifying Acropolis mountain with walls, to the age of Copper and 800B.C, when the final union of Athens into an integrated country took place, and there, for the first time, we find the Panathinaia, the leading fest of Athens in honor of god Athina. The “journey” continues with reference to the last king of Athens, Kodro (1068 BC), according to the valuable information of one of the most significant philosophers of all times, Aristotle, moves on to the four tribes the Athenian population was divided into in the 8th-7th century and to 636 B.C., when Cylon, taking advantage of the farmers disappointment, unsuccessfully tried to take over the tyranny with a coop, the wellknown “Cylonian Agos”. In 624 B.C. you will precisely understand what the legislation of Draconta consists of, in 594 B.C. how the opposing parties of the inhabitants and the wealthy of the time, commonly chose Solon to govern, the tyranny of Pisistratos in the mid 6th century B.C., the assassination of Hipparxos in 514 B.C., the significant alterations made by Klisthenis in 508 B.C. which build the grounds for The Athenian Democracy. The Chronicle describes the memory of the Persian king, in 500 B.C., when Athens sent help to the rebelling cities of Ionia. The Athenian courage in the battles of Marathon in 490 B.C. and in Artemisio in 480 B.C., the appearance of the leading role of Athens in 478 B.C., the wellknown victory of Eurimedonda that contributed to the liberation of all the greek cities from the Persian domination. The “gold century” of the Athenian Democracy unfolds before you in the 5th century B.C., a while after Periklis (490-429 B.C.) took charge of the Democratic Party and the First Peloponnesian War came to an end. Then the Acropolis monuments were built.An era in which, if you lived you would get the chance to meet Socrates, the Sophists, and the three great men, for whom you crowd together at the cashier office of the Athens Festival every summer, as well as the Ancient theatre in Epidavros in order to enjoy one of their plays. The Chronicle continues with the conclusion of the unique spiritual and artistic flourish of Athens, because of the Second Peloponnesian War (431-421B.C. and 416-404B.C.), the humiliating Athenian defeat in Sicily by the Lakedemonians, the prosperous period of the Macedonian Dynasty, the Russian domination, during which upon Adriano (117-138B.C.) the temple of Olympian Zeus was completed, the currently preserved aquarium was constructed and the Library was built. An important halt is the year 53B.C., when Apostle Paul educated Christan norms to the Areio Pago, before Stoic and Epicurean philosophers, 396B.C. was a terrible period as Athens fell into the hands of Gothic intruders. The uprising of Ioustiniano (482-565) to the empire throne played an important role in the avoidance of the ancient Greek world, but also from the era of the Emperor Hrakleio (574-640) a long period of obscurity and predatory attacks began for Athens. In 1204 the Crusades entered the Acropolis fort. The Frank occupation was maintained up until 1308, while the Catalanic Company up until 1387. Following Constantinople’s fortune, Athens was occupied in 1456. The era of the Turkish occupation is described in 14 journeys. In the beginning of the 19th century the Chronicle reminds us that in 1800 when Lord Elgin situated himself as an ambassador in Constantinople, invoking on the disasters of the ancient Athenian monuments, violently took away parts of the interior decoration of the temples on the Acropolis Mountain. In 1834 we see how Athens is declared to be the capital of Greece, by an order from the Regency and a year after the first public elections took place which resulted in Anargyro Petrakis being elected as mayor. In 1843 we discover the secrete councils in the house of a significant Greek, Makrigiannis, the great civil and Athenian guard revolution, which lead to the grant of a Constitution. In 1862 we observe the abolishment of Othons kingdom. A year later, we see his succession by George the First. In 1882 and for 15 following years we observe the domination of the leading personality of Harilaos Trikoupis. In 1896 we detect the revival of the Olympic Games in Athens. In the period of 1899-1908 we see the developments made in Athens by the Athenian Mayor Spyros Merkouris. Information on the activities of the greatest political personality of the 20th century Eleutherios Venizelos, whose project, outstanding accomplishments in our national completion and internal achievements as a country, are visible, as the light that surrounds us and are included in the specifics of the modern period. We move on to the period of the internal war, where an English Company resumed the activity of producing electric energy in the entire capital area. The telephones that operated through a phone center were replaced by automatic telephones. In 1928 the first political airport was created in the Delta Falirou area and the airport in the Hellinikon area was founded in 1934. You can also see the dictatorship imposition in 1936 by Ioannis Metaxas, the Second World War, the period of occupation and the political journey that lead to the “Decembriana” and the Varkiza agreemen, the dictatorship of April 21st 1967, the student and civil riot in 1973, the meta-political era up until September 6th 1997, when the International Olympic Games Committee entrusted the Olympic Games of 2004 to Athens.

Its capital is Heraklion, the largest city on the island. The coast and the mountainous parts of the prefecture, are inhabited from prehistoric times to today. For this, the area is considered to be one of the richest sites in Crete, with the magnificent Minoan palaces at Knossos, Phaistos, Malia and Heraklion.

Parga, a heavenly place

Parga, a heavenly place

Parga, this divine land, attracted the attention of gods and daemons. The icon of Mother Mary along with the multiple memories of fleeing the settlement of Paleoparga, situated at the facing mountain called Petzovolio, to the cave outside the castle, convinced the inhabitants to settle on the rock, where today the castle stands. Loved by the virgin Mary, and earlier by Mars, the period of her free life will end on the 15th of April 1819. Archeological finds, written scripts of the past and legend confirm that human activity was present in this region from antiquity.The Neolithic flint stone that was found in an olive plantation, the domed shaped Minoan grave found on the property of Souida, the ancient wall segment found outside the grounds of the Venetian castle along with a foundation stone which constituted part of an ancient dock on the western side of Valtos bay, which unfortunately was covered by rocks to build a marina, the rectangular shaped graves on the road close to Anthousa, all undoubtedly prove the existence of human civilization in the region throughout antiquity. Byzantine sources first refer to Parga in 1337 and most likely refer to the older settlement of the castle and not Paleoparga at Petzovolio. The settlement at its new position will have to deal this many perils during the passing of time. For six years Parga will have to endure the rule of the thief Bogoi (who considered himself as of Alban - Serbian - Boulgarian - Vlahos decent). When he leaves he will request the protection of the Venetians. Their presence will be felt between the 15th and 18th centuries. Throughout this period Parga will be autonomous. The raids and looting from land and sea will not cease during this period. Hairetin Varvarosa will be one of those who will loot her. The situation stabilizes from the late 16th century to the late 18th century. Parga develops economically, and becomes a trade center. The old customs office (Dogana) at Valtos still exists up to this day. Dogana also served as a shelter and outpost for the "kleftes" (rebels who fought against the rule of the Ottoman Empire). The water fountain and the house of Boukouvala, along with the well of Androutso bear whiteness this.
