The harbor of Igoumenitsa is the largest source of income for the area, which counts for approximately 45.ooo citizens.Thesprotia is a place filled with remainders of its rich history. The first Greek tribes to settle in Thesprotia were the Thesprotians, from which the area took its name, in 2000 b.C. One thousand years later, the Molossoi settled in the area, and from the 8th to the 6th century b.C. the Corinthians, the Ileians and the Kerkyraioi founded colonies in the area. At this time, the area knows its blossoming. The first copper coins were cut, a written language was used and the Common of the Thesprotians was founded, with its capital first at Elea and then at Gitani. Unfortunately, during the last two prechristian centuries, Thesprotia became familiar with destruction by a number of different exogenous factors, especially by a variety of Roman armies. Through Pax Romana new wealthy settlements were founded, Foiniki and Ladochori, only to be raided by German and Slavic tribes at the end of the 4th century A.C. Residents of the area were driven to naturally fortified positions, meaning the hard mountains of the area. Thesprotia, due to its strategic position, was the victim of wargames for years to come. It lost its shores from the Venetians, which were the rulers of the whole area at that time, at the end of the 4th century A.C. Parga, Fanari and Sagiada were created during that time. Igoumenitsa, Paramithia and Osdina were created in the After Byzantine times, in the 13th and 14th century. These cities, after their subjection to the Turks, flourished in trade and continuously struggled against the Turks, most known examples, Dionysos the Skylosophos and the villagers of Souli.

Corfu, the island that fascinated poets and kings

Corfu, the island that fascinated poets and kings

The exceptional geographical position of Corfu determined, from the beginning, the role that the island was destined to play. Crossing point and meeting place of ideas and of human coexistence, melting pot of civilizations, managed to fuse together harmoniously the often-contradictory trends and to exhibit a cultural identity quite unique and different from the rest parts of Greece. The coexistance of Romans and Byzantines with locals, enriched with immigrants from southern Italy and Sicily, Venice and later France, England, Malta and other Mediterranean countries, fused together with Jews and waves of refugees from the Turk-occupied Greece and Crete (especially after the fall of Candia), makes the city a place of exemplary complexness, the multicultural character of which, is reflected on the arts and the lettered, on the social life of the city and suburbs.The inclination of corfiots to the spectacles, the music and the opera is the result of the living history and coexists with the deepest respect for the national and religious symbols. The western style of the buildings and of the artistic expression, of the customs and the musical tradition constitutes the expression of the cultural osmosis of Corfu with the West. A procedure that, despite the predictions to the opposite, left the Eastern Greek Orthodox Dogma untouched, in times that the Eastern Christianity, in her historical borders, was either savagely oppressed or ceased to exit.

These cups, bearing depictions of wild bull hunting, can be seen at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, and even though the location of the palace of Mycenaean Sparta has not been identified, they constitute evidence of the prosperity and development of the region much earlier than 1000 B.C. The regions significance has been attested also by the discovery of the Mycenaean tombs in the location "Spilakia".One of the most important archaeological discoveries in Greece, located in Vafio close to Amycles.

The exhibits include findings from the temple of Artemis Orthia (clay labeled columns commemorating the winners of contests dedicated to goddess Artemis) and the temple of Athena Chalkioikos (bronze idols, pottery, etc), findings from the excavations in Amycles, as well as a small part of the mosaic floors that have been revealed during the excavations around the town of Sparta and used to decorate the wealthy family houses of the Hellenistic and Roman period. There are also two rooms with sculptures, including the statue which is known as Leonidas, and a room with findings from the prehistoric excavations in Pellana and Amycles. The Ancient Theater of Sparta is located on the southwestern slope of the Spartan Acropolis just below the temple of Athena. It has a southern orientation, which is a quite common characteristic of the ancient theaters, but because of the natural relief, it leans slightly towards the south. It is one of the biggest ancient theaters, with an external diameter of 140 m. and natural ground, but through the works for the walls, the size of the available space was almost tripled. The current form of the theater dates back to the Roman period and more specifically to its latest reconstruction during the era of emperor Theodosios.
