La visuale che si gode dalla vetta è eccezionale; è, infatti, possibile mantenere sotto costante controllo il mare e la costa per una distanza di miglia e miglia. La fortezza si distribuisce sul colle attraverso una pianta poligonale irregolare. Al suo interno si possono distinguere, presso il lato meridionale, creste murarie inerenti a pareti divisorie di ambienti interni. La porzione settentrionale è la meglio conservata: in essa si possono distinguere, nell’angolo nord-orientale, gli imponenti resti del mastio insieme con alcuni ambienti sottomessi, e, a nord occidente, l’ingresso principale del castello. Il lato occidentale risulta per buona parte interrato, mentre quello orientale presenta una grossa porzione della cinta muraria sganciata dalla muratura ed adagiata, letteralmente, sul bastione, con conseguente rischio di crollo. Presso il lato meridionale è presente una cisterna di grandi dimensioni e dalla profondità approssimativa di circa m. 5. In ultimo la cinta muraria presenta ancora tracce superstiti dei camminamenti di ronda. La sommità della rocca offre una conformazione geomorfologica irregolare: in essa, infatti, si aprono caverne di medie e piccole dimensioni solo in parte esplorate. Il massiccio roccioso compie una brusca discesa in direzione est, dove, tramite un dislivello di circa 100 metri, si stende una ulteriore piattaforma. Essa sorge isolata dal territorio circostante grazie alla presenza di grandi pareti a strapiombo che isolano il luogo lungo i lati orientale e meridionale. Un piccolo sentiero permette di accedervi da nord, evitando così di passare per il Belvedere, posto ad ovest. La piattaforma rocciosa ai piedi del castello, in tempi di gran lunga più antichi, ospitò l’antico abitato greco indigeno di Fiumedinisi.

This year's race is dedicated to Ancient Greek Rhodian Athletes, so we selected the figure of Leonidas of Rhodes, one of the most famous ancient Olympic runners. For four consecutive Olympiads (164-152 BCE), he was champion of three foot races. He was hailed with the title "Triastes" (tripler). Leonidas is acclaimed by some to be the greatest sprinter of all time. Leonidas's lifetime record of twelve individual Olympic victory wreaths was unmatched in the ancient world. ℹ️ Interesting color facts about the poster: 𝗥𝗘𝗗 is a very powerful, dynamic and also a very energizing color.

We're in Book 9 of Stop! Homer Time. Odysseus finally explains how he pissed off Poseiden so much. 📖 TLDR, he lands on an island full of Cyclopses, breaks into one's home, narrowly avoids being eaten, gauges the giant's eye out, and steals his sheep. Did O learn a valuable lesson from this situation? Nope. He basically yells across the ocean to gloat and gives his entire IP address to the blind Cyclops, who happens to be Polyphemus, son of (you guessed it) the God of the Sea 🧜‍♂️ . . . #doodle #illustration #sketch #drawing #artist #instaartist #artistsoninstagram #booklover #homer #theodyssey #ancientgreece #overduepodcast

Is there anything more iconic than this view?! Some people think this is called the Acropolis but, in fact, Acropolis simply describes the elevated ground this ancient structure sits on; the building itself is called the Parthenon. Completed in Ancient Greece in 438BC, this stunning monument was built out of the finest pentelic marble in honour of the city’s protector and namesake, the daughter of Zeus and the Goddess of War, Athena. Greek legend tells us that Athena gifted her city with the olive tree, providing it with everlasting supplies of wood, shade, olives and oil. The sacred olive tree that can be seen today at the Parthenon is believed to be a direct descendant of Athena’s original gift, repeatedly cultivated and replanted from salvaged sprigs after historical damage (most recently after the German bombings of World War II). #thisisathens #kings_greece #athens_city #thinkathens #parthenon #acropolis #beautifulgreece #visitgreece #great_greece #athensbyday #athens #travelgreece #greecestagram #discovergreece #ancientgreece #athensgreece #acropolisofathens #ancientcivilization #cradleofcivilization #happytraveller #ohmygreece #myhappycapture #cameramamas #livelovetravel #mumswhotravel #outdoorclassroom #exploretogether #exploretheworld #traveldreams #timelessathenstours

Amidst the bronze age ruins of Knossos, built by the Minoans on the island of Crete, Greece are the early 20th century reconstructions of the palace. Recreated in modern materials, some view the structures such as the North Entrance (pictured here) as accurate restorations, skeptics see them as fantasy, having little to do with the original Palace of Knossos. What do you think, are restorations/reconstructions like this of added value? Or are ruins like this best left as found to preserve authenticity? #backpackingeu is a #travel website dedicated to providing #traveltips to #backpackers #backpacking throughout #europe and beyond.

Το Παναθηναϊκό Στάδιο, γνωστό και ως Καλλιμάρμαρο, είναι στάδιο στην Αθήνα που βρίσκεται στην περιοχή του Παγκρατίου ανατολικά του Ζαππείου και βόρεια του λόφου του Αρδηττού, δια των οποίων διέρχεται ο Ιλισός ποταμός. Στο Παναθηναϊκό Στάδιο, έγιναν αγωνίσματα των Α΄ σύγχρονων Ολυμπιακών Αγώνων, το 1896. Με την ανακατασκευή του Σταδίου για τη διεξαγωγή των πρώτων Σύγχρονων Ολυμπιακών Αγώνων ξεκίνησε και η ανάπτυξη της ευρύτερης συνοικίας του Παγκρατίου. . . . . . . . . . . . . _____________________________________________________________#stadium #stadiums #ancientgreece #ancient #street_avengers #streetmagazines #dreaminstreets #realismag #street_is_life #urbanphotographershub #streetsgrammer #insidephotos #streets_unseen #nonstopstreetk #life_is_street #thegreekshub #strangertonez #nopain_nograin #urbanmagazine #fujifilm #fuji #fujixt20 #skg #blind_pilots #athens #bnw #bnwphotography #bnwmood #bnw_captures #bnw_greatshots ___________________________________________________________

Marriage in Ancient Greece was usually arranged by the parents and on occasion matchmakers. 👰⁣ ⁣ At the time it was more of a social responsibility than a personal relationship with the focus on reproduction and making the society stronger. 👫⁣ ⁣ Women were generally married very young (under 18) to older men. 💍⁣ ⁣ ------⁣ #DoronsAcademy #History #AncientGreece #AncientGreekHistory #AncientAthens #Marriage #HistoryFacts #HistoryFact #Greece #GreekHistory

Aimed at a general audience, the book discusses the legacy of Anaximander (c. 610 – c. 546 BCE) and how his method and theories are relevant to the development of science and scientific inquiry. Carlo Rovelli is first and foremost a scientist, an Italian theoretical physicist, who came to worldwide attention with his book, Seven Brief Lessons on Physics (2015 CE). Anaximander (first published in English in 2011 CE) is an earlier book that examines the legacy of Anaximander (c. 610 – c. 546 BCE). Carlo Rovelli's books are written originally in his native Italian, but the elegance of his ideas and writing are not lost in translation or diminished. Our knowledge of Anaximander is not vast, indeed we have a single fragment of his work and various later references to Anaximander that enables an understanding of his ideas and thoughts. The written fragment is from Theophrastos' Physic Opinion and is believed to have quoted Anaximander's own words. The book begins with a description of Greece in the 6th century BCE, contextualising the 6th century BCE with the past, and then discusses Anaximander's theories and discoveries. 6th-century BCE Miletus was a place of pioneering thinking, Thales, Anaximander, Anaximenes, Hecataeus were all part of the Ionian school of Greek philosophy centred there. Anaximander examined the ideas of his tutor Thales of Miletus and then put forward his own ideas, crucially in written form and suggesting at the same time that the ideas of Thales were not altogether correct. Thus the process of scientific inquiry had begun, indeed “a conceptual revolution” was underway. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • (Book Review by Michael Condry)
