Katakolon
Aug 13, 2004

Katakolon, Greece, is a tiny sleepy port in the Peloponnese. The gateway to Olympia. Having visited Olympia in 2003, photos at http://public.fotki.com/Magwa/cruising/sanctuary_of_olympi/ , we just wandered around this delightful town. You can see it all in an hour, or less! Many souvenir shops and pavement cafes along the quay. There is a small beach on the opposite side of the pier to the town, and more beaches a short taxi ride away. - 13 Aug 2004

Santorini
Aug 11, 2004

Views of Santorini, from the sea, on the island & of the caldera from Santorini. See separate album for views of Oia.

Santorini is one of the most beautiful & impressive islands in the world, with its craggy precipices, the legend of the lost island of Atlantis, the deep blue of the sea, the white of the pumice-stone & the black intensity of the lava.

3.600 years ago, the Strongyli volcano collapsed, creating the huge cauldron of the caldera we see today. The Santorini Island complex, Thira, Thirasia, & Aspronisi, are the fragments that remained above the surface of the sea after the collapse, while the rest, the greatest portion of the island, disappeared under the water. Not long after the caldera was formed, molten rock, viscous magma with few gases, again began to flow up in the center of it, solidifying in contact with the seawater and thus slowly building up a submarine volcanic structure which would eventually become the foundation of the Kameni Islets, Palea & Nea.

Piraeus
Aug 8, 2004

A few photos of Piraeus, the Port for Athens.

Piraeus has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The settlement of Mounichia (the present Kastella) was created then. Themistocles, a political genius, later thought of utilizing this large natural harbour. He correctly noted the advantageous position of the three bays, existing in the area and convinced the Athenians to transfer their port from Phaliron to Piraeus.

After the Battle of Marathon- he built in 487 - 486 BC large fortification works and turned Piraeus into a military harbor.

The shipyards that were created then, built the mighty Athenian fleet, which distinguished itself at the Battle of Salamis.

The fortification of the harbor were completed by Kimon and Pericles with the construction of the Long Wall, by which Athens and Piraeus were joined. Its construction was completed in 456 BC. During its peak period the harbor of Piraeus contained 372 "neosoikoi" (sheds near the sea where ships were kept out of the water), "skevothikes" (the yards for the rigging of warships) and shipyards for the building of ships.
