Patmos, a blessed island

Patmos, a blessed island

This particularity lies that it combines the historicity and the religiosity of space with the ideal place that offers in the visitor for relaxation and quiet vacations. One of the smallest inhabited islands of the Aegean, Patmos, is incredibly beautiful. It is the island where Saint John the Theologian, while exiled there, had a vision and in 1995 the 1900 years - since the writing of his Apocalypse were commemorated. The impressive stone monastery dominates majestically over most of the island, inviting you to approach it with respect, wonder and awe. The island, which has kept its ancient name, today has become a place of pilgrimage and the throng of faithful flock to supplicate and relish the spiritual heritage of this sacred island and also to admire and enjoy its beauty and serenity.The picturesque, interchangeable landscape, with the small plains and valleys, the impressive rocks - hoisted like castles on the tops and the slopes of the hills (the most prominent being that of Prophet Elias) - with thick spreading pine and other tree-forests, along with its religious significance and mysticism, presents a sup generis image. The island lies between Ikaria and Leros. It was inhabited since very ancient times and according to legend, it was here that Orestes -who killed his mother Clytemnestra - came to elude the vengeance of the Furies. The most important attraction naturally will be the fortress-like monastery of St John, built in 1088 by the monk Christodoulos. Many priceless treasures are housed in its sacristy. Also, in Hora, there is an Ecclesiastical Museum. Halfway between Hora and Skala there is the "Grotto of the Apocalypse", where the Revelation was written by John the Evangelist. At the mouth of the cave you will see the church of Agia Anna and at a short distance from there, the famous Patmias School is located. At the Patmos shops you find reasonably priced porcelain, crystal and silver items. The Patmian embroidery is famous for its elegance.

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.

Kalymnos, the real island experience

Kalymnos, the real island experience

This island is the home of the Greek sponge divers. All, of course, the Dodecanese are world known as a place of sponge divers, the best in the world. But, Karpathos, Kassos, Nisyros, Symi, Halki, and above all Kalymnos are the main nurseries of the diving activity spread across the eastern Mediterranean. But they have carried their art, even in America, in the Gulf of Mexico. Also in Florida, in the United States, have founded the city of Tarpon Springs, who live mainly people from Kalymnos, and other Dodecanese Greek-Americans and others who continue the tradition of virtuosos divers. The Dodecanese divers are not only used for sponge fishing, but for every job. The Italian expert Domenico Mantzolani says with admiration that a diver on the island of Symi, George Kangi, in 1913 passed a loop to the anchor of an Italian warship that had been cut down to the bottom. The one diver without diving suit, had managed to stay in bed for 3 minutes and 5 seconds! Each year, approximately 40 to 50 units of fishing boats, with crews of up to 800 to 1,000 sailors, ranging from the islands and especially from Kalymnos and head to the coast of Africa, especially in Tunis and Libya. To achieve the Sponge charged farewell, in Kalymnos are taking place two-day celebrations, which begin with the blessing of the ship and ends with the "Feast of Love". In those celebrations are taking part all the inhabitants of the island. In recent decades, divers of the Dodecanese dive "naked", ie without wearing special protective diving suit and learned their craft in an empirical way. Now they use special protective suits and other modernized equipment, while training at the National Diving School of Kalymnos.

Kythnos, an island ideal for relaxing holidays

Kythnos, an island ideal for relaxing holidays

Kythnos probably took its name from the leader of Dryops and first inhabitant of the island, Kythnos, although his existence is doubtful. Another possibility is that its name comes from the stem "kyth", which derives from the verb keptho (hide) and refers to the place where one can hide, probably a place with woods, valleys, caves or mines. Recent excavations at Maroulas area have brought to light findings which prove that the island was inhabited during the Mesolithic Period, that is it may have been the oldest settlement of man on Cyclades. In the 13th century B.C., according to Herodotus, the Dryops emigrated to the island, traces of whom are the Cyclopean walls and the temples they have left behind. The Ions were the next to inhabit the island. In the Kinthean Republic, Aristotle refers to the ideal state those peoples had created.During the Persian Wars, Kythnos participates with one trireme and soon after it becomes member of the Athenian Alliance. Later it becomes part of the Roman state and afterwards it is included in the Aegean Theme by the Byzantines. During the Venetian domination it is conquered by the noble Marko Sanoudo and it is called Thermia, because of its hot (therma) spring waters. Then it comes under the rule of the Castelli family and later on the family of Gozadini. It remains under the rule of the family even after the looting of the pirate Barbarossa (1537), because of the peace treaty that was signed between the Turks and the Venetians, while during the Russian-Turkish war it is conquered by the Russians. In 1827, the island is called Kythnos again and takes part in the fight against the Turks. During the reign of Othona, rebels and political prisoners were exiled to Kythnos. In 1862 rebels from Syros came to the island to free the prisoners and clashed with the government’s army at the bay of St. Irini. The outcome of the clash was the repression of the rebels and the death of the rebels Leotsakos, Moraetinis, Scravelis and other exiles. Today, the people of Kythnos are in tourism business, without having abandoned other occupations such as agriculture and fishing. They offer to the visitor the perfect combination of the Cycladic scenery, the crystal clear waters, the local products (meat, dairy products, fruit, vegetables) and the fresh fish out of their own fishing boats.
