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.

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.

Ano Pedina Zagori

Ano Pedina Zagori

Ano Pedina (Upper Soudena) is one of the oldest Zagorohoria villages. It is located 35 kilometers north of Ioannina City and at an altitude of 900 meters. The name probably Soudena is Slavic and means "cool place", possibly because of the cold airstreams coming from the five hills' slope to the village Ano Pedina that is allocated among the hills.The first historical reference to the village is the Chrysovolo (order) in the year of 1362 of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III Palaiologos. The upper village area called Machalas has its center in the church of Virgin Mary. Around 1670 was created Under Machalas which is centered in the area of church Metamorphosis. During the late Ottoman Empire the village has the best period as all Zagorohoria villages, because of the autonomy and the famous travel baths of Zagori.

The island's climate is cool, so even the periods of high temperature (June-August), the winds will freshen the locals and visitors. The average temperature in the hot summer months is between 27C-29C, while other times 12-18C. It is known worldwide as the young people island, it has to offer visitors, many more than the sun, the sea and the fun.

The Panagia Gremiotissa. The view is panoramic. The whole village is poured on her feet forward. On the right is the Port, on the left the windmills, and across the neighboring islands of Sikinos and Santorini. When the weather permits, off in the distance stands the island of Crete. The church Gremiotissa is of Byzantine architecture and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The tradition explains why people of Ios built the church in the cliffs on top of the hill: The image of the Virgin Mary with the Christ, which is now in the church, was once on the Bay Mylopotas in rocks and lit by a candle.

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.
