The historic Agios Ioannis (Agiannis) of Kynouria.

Agios Ioannis (Agiannis) of Kynouria, was the capital of the Greek state in 1822 and offered many and important things in the revolution of 1821.

The historic Astros and Agios Ioannis (Agiannis) are a community.

It is a mountain village built at an altitude of 750 m., 17 km west of Astros. It is administratively subordinated to the community of Astros and the Municipality of North Kynouria. In 1845, the village became the seat of Kynouria Province. From 1834 to 1912, it was the summer capital of the Municipality of Thyrea. The first mention of the village is made in the Chronicle of the Fall of Constantinople by Georgios Sfratzis, in 1453.

Astros and Paralio Astros came from the village of Agios Ioannis, as well as other settlements. Agiannis is advertised for its beautiful mountain climate that renews and invigorates its inhabitants and visitors, has many natural beauties and is only half an hour away from Astros. The mountainous climate, as they typically said “not to be eaten by the plain”, was one of the reasons that the inhabitants were forced despite all the difficulties to have the upper and lower village, they needed both.

From the end of the 80’s, an intense construction activity began in Agiannis, which continues to this day, and mainly concerns the restoration of the old traditional houses. At the same time many new houses were built. Many visitors from all over Greece and Germany buy houses in Agianni. It has developed into the holiday village of Astros and especially in the summer it is a gathering place of the people of Agianni everywhere, but also of vacationers from all over Greece, in the sixties the friends of the village called Agianni “the little Paris”.

Dimitris Karytsiotis built the famous Karytsiotis school, the “university” in pre-revolutionary Greece in 1798 in Agiannis and the branch of the school in 1805 in Astros. His contribution to the Thyreatis Earth and the homeland is incalculable. Pre-revolutionary Greece had many small “hidden” and few open schools. One of the few obvious schools was the famous Karytsiotis School that was built in 1798, 23 years before the Greek revolution and this is of great importance. It was built on the hill Koutri of Agiannis Kynourias and was one of the few “universities” of our pre-revolutionary homeland and its students were from all over mainland Greece and our islands.

Our great benefactor Dimitrios Karytsiotis, a powerful Agiannitis patriot of the Diaspora, found a way to allow the 400-year-old Turkish conquerors to allow the acquisition and operation of the school in Agiannis and in the branch of the Karytsiotis school in Astros Kynourias, which opened in 1805.

The branch of the Karytsiotis school in Astros, has housed the Archaeological Museum of Astros since 1985.

The Karytsioti school played a catalytic role for the local community for many years and even today, since all the people of Agianni with great effort and with every sacrifice wanted their children to learn letters and as graduates “squids” to change their lives, according to the “smart” expectations of their great benefactor Dimitrios Karytsiotis.

General Panos Zafeiropoulos (Akouros).

The people of Agiannites offered many and important things to the Greek revolution of 1821 and the most important of all the people of Agiannites was General Panos Zafeiropoulos (Akouros). responsible for military security in time of war of the National Assembly in Astros., At the beginning of the revolution, under the leadership of Panos Zafeiropoulos, more than 100 inhabitants of Agiannis, participated in battles in Tripolitsa and throughout the Peloponnese. Also under the leadership of Georgakis Digenis, they participated in the battles of Doliana and Vervena.

 The “government” of Agiannis

From the beginning in 1821, discussions began between the revolutionaries to make Agiannis the capital of the free Greek state. The Karytsioti school played a primary and decisive role in making Agiannis the capital of revolutionary Greece from August 20 to October 1, 1822. The “government” located very close to the Karytsiotis school of Agiannis was the seat of government. . This period is also confirmed by the Archives of Lazaros and Georgios Kountouriotis (vol. AD, p. 92 ff.).

In 1826 the village was completely destroyed by Ibrahim’s hordes with the same fate as other villages in the area. Ibrahim Pasha also destroyed many churches, such as Agios Vassilios, Agios Efstratios, Agios Petros, as well as the famous School of Karytsiotis. The founding inscription of the famous Karytsiotis School

From Arkades Esmen, Smaragdi Arvaniti

“At the entrance of the village there is the modern church of Agia Paraskevi. Continuing you meet a thicket, the “Koutri”. There the visitor sees a marble slab built into the wall. This is the founding inscription of the famous Karytsiotis School, which alone survived after the burning of the School by the hordes of Ibrahim on July 30, 1826.

After “Koutri”, about 250 m., You can find the central square of the village, with the big plane tree. There is also the church of Ai-Giorgis, post-Byzantine, with a holographic interior. The murals are probably works of the Agiannitis priest and painter Georgios Koulidas. In many of them there are traces of the passage of Ibrahim: swords in the faces of the Saints and the taking out of their eyes.

Descending from Ai-Giorgis square to the lower part of the village we reach the vaulted spring Pigadaki, with the embossed, Arabic script Turkish inscription on a wall slab and date 1100 (1742 AD): “The reizis (officer) Hatzi-Isma , philanthropist and peacemaker, leaves a source of clean and fresh water thanks to the world. For his lively work to say the Fetiha (prayer) “.

A little further down is the church of Agios Ioannis Prodromos, also post-Byzantine. The visitor admires the centuries-old plane tree and the abundant icy water that springs just below the church and flows through four canals. Until about 1960 the water moved four watermills and irrigated the lucrative orchards. Unfortunately, now the place is almost abandoned and the cotton trees have taken the place of the orchards.

We continue east, in the lower village, we pass the old school, the shrine in the place of the church of St. Basil, which was also set on fire by Ibrahim, and we reach the much-sung spring, Soulinari, with the imposing plane tree, decoration for the area.

 From Ai-Giorgis square, a road leads to the upper part of the village, and to Lakka, the second square, where the church of Panagia is located, built by the brothers M. Papoulias (or Touri) on the foundations of an older one that was destroyed by Ibrahim From this point one can admire almost the whole village, the wild beauty of the surrounding mountains and the lively green. The road continues and leads to the exit from the village to the Monastery of Malevi and Agios Petros. Leaving Agiannis, a stop is required in Perdikoneri, a spring with excellent and digestive water. The landscaping Association of the village designed the space with seats and shelter, thus creating an ideal place for relaxation and for a walk, especially on hot summer nights. At about 2 km, in the place “Xirokambi”, there are ruins of the Castle of Oria, from the period of Frankish rule, about which many legends, traditions and songs have been told.

Very close to the village, there are the famous waterfalls of Lepida.

The village has excellent taverns, where meat and cheese produced by the breeders of the area are served, as well as the famous Agiannitiko wine, Kokkineli. There is also a traditional guest house with all modern comforts. Relaxing moments you enjoy with a coffee and dessert in the cafes in the square of Ai-Giorgis, under the plane tree, overlooking the mountains. During the summer and mainly in the context of the religious festivals of Agios Georgios, Agios Panteleimon, Agia Paraskevi, Profitis Ilias, Panagia, Prodromos, Agios Dimitrios, traditional festivals are organized – feasts, but also a number of cultural events “. The village has many traditional springs, such as Soulinari, Perdikoneri, Pigadaki, Mousga, Prodromo and many traditional buildings. In winter the inhabitants go down to Astros.

Paralio Astros From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

«Paralio Astros is a seaside village in Arcadia. It belongs to the Municipality of North Kynouria and according to the national census of 2011 has a population of 1,043 inhabitants [2]. Formerly, the current existing Local Community of Paralio Astros (te as a Municipal District), was an independent Community, within the boundaries of the former Province of Kynouria

Paralio Astros Castle

The castle played an important role during the Turkish occupation. During the period of 1821, rich foreign merchants, brothers Zafeiropoulos (Konstantinos, Ioannis and Panagiotis), originally from Agios Ioannis, fortified the castle, building their houses there. On August 4, 1826, 1,200 soldiers locked inside the castle defeated the numerous army of Ibrahim who was besieging it. In 1833, Panos Zafeiropoulos (Akouros), dedicated the castle to the Kingdom of Greece and to King Otto. At the beginning of the 20th century, the castle was abandoned and deserted».

Panos Zafeiropoulos, was the most important Agiannitis before the revolution of 1821 and his contribution to Thyreatida Earth and his homeland is incalculable and went through the fine print of history.

“At the beginning of July 1826, the military corps of Panos Zafeiropoulos slaughtered 400 Arabs in an ambush set up by Mehmet aga of Tripoli. This was a very heavy blow to the Ottomans. That is why Ibrahim Pasha completely destroyed Agios Ioannis and the whole province of Agios Petros “

Ibrahim slaughtered and burned the whole Peloponnese, but he could never defeat Akuros, although he had been temporarily captured, not even in the castle of Paralio Astros, someone had to resist… and it is our great honor, this was Agiannitis Panagiotis Zafe Ακουρος).

 500 books were saved from the burning of the School, which were kept in 1827 in the house of Zafeiropoulaia (Castle of Paralio Astros). These books were, according to tradition, placed in an old wooden library located in the offices of the School. Many of these books have been saved and recorded today. These books were mostly texts of ancient philosophers and writers, ecclesiastical texts, textbooks of physics, mathematics, etc. “

The settlement of Paralio Astros has a long history with the first important settlement by the Aeginians who were fortified in Paralio Astros in 424 BC. The construction of this fortification project was stopped by the Athenians, who at the same time, led by Nikias, came to Thyrea, captured it and destroyed it. But the Aeginians also settled in Agiannis, as historians report that the Aeginites came from Aeginites. Before the revolution of 1821 the Agiannites brothers Zafeiropoulos and many Agiannites made the second large settlement in Paralio Astros, and today many names from Paralio Astros are Agiannitika names.

“In November 1824, the Zafeiropoulos brothers began the restoration work of the ruined Frankish Castle of Paralio Astros and were completed in August 1825. More than 200,000 groschen were spent on the construction (according to a report by the widow Euphrosyne). The Zafeiropoulos brothers now settled permanently in the Castle and were the first settlers of Paralio Astros. Many Agiannites followed them and settled permanently in Paralio Astros, between 1825 – 1828 and later. These were mainly fighters who belonged to his military corps. The first Agianni families that followed the Zafeiropouloi were indicative: the family of Paschos, Logothetis, Nikolaidis, Maroudis (some of its members), Zafeiris (some of its members), Koralli, Bortzou, Diamantis, Karabatsou, Konstantinos, Vasilitheou, Vasileinos, etc., as well as the Avrantini and Nestora families from Spetses. We receive information about the first inhabitants of Paralio Astros from the memoir of Agiannitis Michael Logothetis, who was also the first president of Paralio Astros and from electoral lists of 1871 & 1881. “

By extension we can say that the inhabitants of Agiannites, Astrinoi and Paraliotes are almost the same inhabitants.

 In the current area of ​​Paralio Astros before 1800 there were very few houses and in fact Paralio Astros was built from 1825 and later by the Agiannitis general Panos Zafeiropoulos, as our friends from Paralio  Astros, “BUILDER  OF PARALIO ASTROS ” honor with their statue in the central square.

Korakovouni of Arcadia

Korakovouni is 8 km away from Astros.

From the “Mount Parnon and Moustos Wetland Management Agency, 2015. Guide for the protected area of ​​Mount Parnon and Moustos Wetland. Nature, Culture, Ecotourism. Astros of Arcadia “.

Korakouvouni, a lowland settlement built on a small hill next to the river Vrasiatis and the main provincial road Astros – Leonidi, is located 8 km south of Astros. It is a Kefalochori of the area with several stone-built mansions. In the center and the square of the village dominates the three-aisled Church of Agios Vassilios, Agios Georgios and Agia Varvara. Here are the busts of Georgios Leventis, who was a prominent Friend and head of the Tax Office of the Friends of Bucharest and the benefactor Georgios Kazakis. With a panoramic view of the settlement, the visitor can admire the lush olive grove that stretches in the plain of Vrasiatis and the blue-green beaches of the area. Mountainous Korakovouni at an altitude of 579 m., Is built on the slopes of Mount Parnon and at a distance of about 20 km southwest of Astros. At the entrance of the village the visitor meets the church of the Assumption of the Virgin built in the 17th century, the impressive three-fountain fountain with crystal clear waters built in 1886, in a beautiful paved and stone-built square surrounded by impressive centuries-old plane trees. The stone houses of the village combine harmonious elements of mountain and island architecture.

Museum of Traditional Olive Mill in Korakovouni:

The olive mill was built in 1884 by Petros P. Petropoulos and operated until 1920. It was biomobile, ie all processes were done by biological beings (a horse and workers) and not by machines. The olive mill was renovated in 2006 by Evangelos Anast. Petropoulos, grandson of the owner. In the museum the visitor can observe and get acquainted with the method of processing the olive for the production of olive oil, before the industrial modernization, presented by human models. The exhibits include the baskets in which the workers brought the olives, the sacks in which the olive pulp (commonly hummus) was placed to squeeze the oil, the millstone that melted the olives, the press where the pressing took place and finally the “libi” (container) that ended the olive oil and the other juices (liozoumia) of the olive. Among the museum’s exhibits are the cauldron that boiled the water they used to process the extraction of olive oil, the damizans that transported the oil, the liokoki and the stone wood that remained after the extraction of the oil. The museum also houses the “dynamari”, a mechanism for increasing the pressure of the presses, the plate that was bought in 1913 for weighing olives and oil and the office where the transactions were recorded. Of course, there are also additional tools of the mill, such as those of lighting (lamps) and tools such as the vise, scales, hand drills and wrenches. We will see the first screw of the press which was wooden, before it was replaced by the iron one. The area of ​​the olive mill also served as a processing area for edible olives with salt that was made in the “lanza”, a large barrel with a capacity of 2.5 tons that survives to this day. Inside the museum there are agricultural tools of pre-industrial era, such as plows, zebras and goats.

The castle of Artikaina

Within walking distance from the village, the visitor deserves to know the medieval castle of Artikaina (See p. 208), in an imposing area with unrestricted views to the peaks of Parnon and the turquoise of the Argolic Gulf. At the initiative of local associations, a variety of cultural activities, events and festivals are organized every year. Of particular interest is the traditional carnival carnival, with unique hospitality and rich treats to the public, such as the famous traditional plate pie

Old capital of Tsakonia. Rich Medieval City.

The lost greatness of the mountain village of Tsakonia is reflected in the song “Tell me where your towers are, where your nobility is”. It is located at an altitude of 750 meters, is 20 kilometers from the village of Agios Andreas, with a difficult route that compensates the visitor with its beauty and its special local architecture. The tower houses are typical in the village and are preserved of Sarantari, Kalimeris, Merikas, Karamanos, Gounelos, while there are remains of Byzantine temples such as Taxiarches, Agios Dimitrios and Panagia which was the Diocese. On the road to the village from Agios Andreas the visitor meets the monastery of Artokosta while one can also see the old monastery of Englestouri (building of 1733). The village is adjacent to the mountainous Korakovouni, while nearby is the gorge of Mazia, where one can see watermills and water mills. There is no tourist infrastructure in the village and so the visitor must find accommodation in other villages of Parnonas. Manolis Dounias came from Prastos and led the Fall of Tripoli in 1821. There is a bust of him in the village.

From the “Mount Parnon and Moustos Wetland Management Agency, 2015. Guide for the protected area of ​​Mount Parnon and Moustos Wetland. Nature, Culture, Ecotourism. Astros of Arcadia “.

Built amphitheatrically on the slope of Mount Parnon, at an altitude of 750 m and at a distance of 30 km from Astros and 20 km southwest of Agios Andreas, is the traditional and preserved settlement of Prastos, the historic capital of Tsakonia from the Middle Ages to 1826. It is a beautiful and picturesque village that charms with its traditional houses, tower houses and churches. Its houses retain the main elements of the local architecture, which is simple and characteristic: arched doors, narrow windows, decorative window, built staircase with high arch, slate slabs and often with strong defensive and fortified elements. From medieval times it was a crowded and prosperous city, full of towers, rich mansions and churches. The choice of the steep location, where the village was built, was mainly due to defensive reasons due to the pirates. Most of the Tsakonian population had settled here, where they maintained their main residence. It is estimated that the population of Prastos in medieval times amounted to 9,000 inhabitants. Prastos then had 9 parishes, 30 churches and intense economic activity.

At that time the maritime trade was flourishing while the trade relations of Prastos had reached as far as Constantinople, Russia, Turkey, Egypt and France. The saying “the city produces white and Prastos makes them castles” is typical. The goods were usually transported by ships from Spetses and Hydra, the main shareholders of which were the merchants from Prastia. In 1826 it was set on fire by Ibrahim and since then it was deserted, when the inhabitants of the village in their attempt to escape fled to Leonidio, “the safe place”, according to Th. Kolokotronis. The prosperity and glamor of the village in the past have left their mark strongly on today. Several old tower houses are preserved with the most characteristic features of Sarantari (one of the best preserved, with a built-in inscription of 1722), Kalimeris, Merika, Karamanos (1788) and Gounelos, built in the second period of Ottoman rule. All are fortified houses with rifles. From the numerous and majestic churches of the heyday, are preserved today and stand out: Taxiarches (18th century), Agios Dimitrios (17th century) and Panagia, old metropolis. Below the old metropolis is the small square of the village, which has recently been renovated. Here is the bust of Prastiotis Manolis Dounias, fighter of 1821 and conqueror of Tripolitsa on September 23, 1821. In the nearby gorge of Mazia there are today the remains of dozens of watermills and water mill, which mark the great prosperity of the village in the past. The memories and nostalgia for this rich and historical past of the village Mr. are also recorded in the Tsakonian folk song: “Prastos me, your towers say and your nobility says!”.

Prastos, who during the period of Ottoman rule was a vilayet (administrative district), actively participated in the Orloff Revolution (1769-1770), as well as in the Klefturia movement. Dozens of Friends from Prastos will contribute decisively to the uprising of the Genos but also to the beginning of the Revolution in the area of ​​Kynouria. Led by Theodoros Goulelos and Giorgakis Manolakis or Michalakis, 250 Prastian warriors set out to occupy the fortress of Monemvasia, of great military importance and invincible, as it was considered. At the same time, the Proestos and Demogerdos of Prastos, in consultation with Kolokotronis and the people of Verveni, Karabela and Kritiko, established in Vervena the famous “Cellar”, ie the chamber of the Army, to supply Prastos with food to the army. , in which many Prastian fighters also participated. Agiopetritis, the protagonist and memoirist of the Struggle, Anagnostis Kontakis, writes that: “if it were not for Prastos, who fed the army for 4 months, the struggle for freedom would have been lost”.

The Prastiotes fighters took part in many battles of the Revolution of 1821. Their contribution to the fall of Tripolitsa was decisive, where Manolis Dounias is considered as its conqueror.

Prastos holds many golden pages in the Revolution of 1821 with invaluable contribution and heroic struggles.Dozens of dignitaries and leaders, chiefs, teachers, clergy, sponsors and hundreds of activists, offered the maximum and contributed decisively to the successful outcome of the Struggle for Freedom. From Prastos start paths and picturesque routes that lead to rich and important cultural and natural monuments.

The Prastiotes successfully participated in other battles (eg Battle of Bervena, Battle of Doliana, etc.). In 1826, Ibrahim Pasha completely destroyed the village. areas. In the following years, Prastos became the capital of the Province of Kynouria and the seat of the municipality of Vrasia.

The Offer of Prastos in the Revolution of 1821 “

This shortage forced the besieged Turks to trade with the Greek besiegers, in order to save food. This fact was taken advantage of by Prastiotis Manolis Dounias and he gained acquaintances, “friendly” relations with the guards of the wall so that, at the critical moment, he could enter the city and open, together with others, the so-called Nafplio Gate, “to be invaded by the Greek warriors, with the first Tsakones-Prastiotes, who had been properly prepared by their leaders, and to occupy Tripoli together in a few hours.”

Η πρωτεύουσα του δήμου μας , το  ιστορικό Άστρος, ο «Ιερός Χώρος» της Β’ Εθνοσυνέλευσης των Ελλήνων και η Σχολή Καρυτσιώτη απουσιάζουν διαχρονικά  και αναιτιολόγητα από την ιστοσελίδα του δήμου μας

.

DCIM101MEDIADJI_0187.JPG

Στην ψηφιακή εποχή μας  η ιστοσελίδα του δήμου είναι πρωταρχικής σημασίας για την σωστή προβολή του τόπου μας , κάτι αυτονόητο, που  όλοι παντού κάτι κάνουν, όσο μπορούνε καλύτερα.

Σχεδόν πριν τρία χρόνια ( Ιανουάριος 2020) κάναμε το κόπο με αναφορές και δημόσιες παρεμβάσεις να καταγράψουμε λεπτομερέστερα τα μικρά και μεγάλα λάθη της ιστοσελίδας του δήμου μας, για να βοηθήσουμε τους αρμόδιους της ιστοσελίδας να κάνουν τα αυτονόητα και  τις απαραίτητες διορθώσεις για μια καλύτερη προβολή του τόπου μας. Η περιβόητη ανάπτυξη δεν θα έρθει μόνη της, αν δεν κουνάμε και εμείς τα χέρια μας.

Δεν είμαστε ειδικοί, αλλά θεωρούμε αναγκαίο να προσθέσουμε ότι η υπάρχουσα ιστοσελίδα είναι τεχνικά καλή και είναι δυνατό να  βελτιωθεί , αλλά το πρόβλημα  είναι τα θέματα που απουσιάζουν και τα κείμενα  «θέλουν λίγη δουλειά». ΜΠΟΡΟΥΜΕ ΚΑΛΥΤΕΡΑ .Άμα θέλουμε, με λίγη φαντασία και λίγη δουλειά  μπορούμε να φτιάξουμε την ιστοσελίδα καλύτερα ,  για να προβάλλουμε τον τόπο μας έξυπνα,χωρίς έξοδα και αποτελεσματικά.

Ο δήμος «ξέχασε» διαχρονικά  την πρωτεύουσα , το ιστορικό Άστρος.

Παραθέτουμε  παρακάτω  ,μόνο για δύο θέματα, τι λέγαμε πριν τρία χρόνια, που είναι πολύ επίκαιρα σήμερα.

«Eίναι αδιανόητο στη ιστοσελίδα ενός δήμου να μην υπάρχει σελίδα για την πρωτεύουσα του δήμου με ένα μικρό κείμενο, συγκεκριμένα για  το Άστρος, και να υπάρχουν σελίδες που γίνονται σύνδεσμοι  για 11 άλλα  χωριά του δήμου, αυτό είναι παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ ερασιτεχισμού, στενοκεφαλιάς και στραβομάρας.»

Αυτή η στενοκεφαλιά είναι παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ Γκίνες . Δεν υπάρχει άλλη ιστοσελιδα δήμου στον πλανήτη γη που  δεν έχει  μια σελίδα για την πρωτεύουσα του δήμου.Αυτό γίνεται διαχρονικά χωρίς ντροπη μόνο στο δήμο μας.

Έχει μαλλιάσει η γλώσσα μας … και δεν ντρεπόμαστε….να το θυμίζουμε.Δείτε τον σύνδεσμο.

Άστρος : Aφιερώνεται στο δήμο μας και στο τοτικό συμβούλιο της κοινότητας Άστρους για το Επιχειρησιακό Πρόγραμμα και την ιστοσελίδα τους

«Σε διαφορετική παρακάτω  σελίδα στην ιστοσελίδα του δήμου μας  μετρήσαμε  39  “Αξιοθέατα” για όλο το δήμο μας, όπως τα Φαράγγια της  Μαζιάς και της Ζαρμπάνιτσας,  αλλά δεν βρήκαμε πουθενά τίποτα για το Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Άστρους και για τα  δύο σπουδαιότερα μνημεία του δήμου μας, τη Σχολή Καρυτσιώτη του Αγιάννη με το παράρτημα της στο Άστρος (που στεγάζεται το μουσείο Άστρους)  και τoν «Ιερό Χώρο»  της Β’ Εθνοσυνέλευσης των  Ελλήνων,»

Έχει μαλλιάσει η γλώσσα μας …  και δεν ντρεπόμαστε…. να προβάλλουμε τα  σπουδαιότερα συγκριτικά πλεονεκτήματα του δήμου μας , τον «Ιερό Χώρο» της Β’ Εθνοσυνέλευσης των Ελλήνων και τη Σχολή Καρυτσιώτη. Δεν χρειάζεται να είσαι νευροχειρουργός για να το καταλάβεις. Χρειάζεται να υπάρχει κοινός νους  και θέληση . Είναι εδώ μπροστά μας , ΑΥΤΑ ΈΧΟΥΜΕ. Δεν μπορούμε να το πούμε καλύτερα , δείτε το παρακάτω σύνδεσμο.

Ο τονισμός δικός μας

Από την σελίδα του δήμου μας , δείτε τα λάθη ,τις αντιφάσεις  και τους σολοικισμούς…ΜΠΟΡΟΥΜΕ ΚΑΛΥΤΕΡΑ.

«Τα επόμενα χρόνια, έγινε σχολείο και το 1959, έγινε αρχαιολογικό μουσείο. Το 2008 έκλεισε λόγω ζημιών που προκλήθηκαν από σεισμό.

Παραχωρήθηκε στην Εφορεία Αρχαιοτήτων από τον Δήμο Άστρους και μετά από σημαντικές επισκευές και συντηρήσεις μετατράπηκε σε Μουσείο της Κυνουρίας από τον έφορο Αρχαιοτήτων κ. Θ. Σπυρόπουλο, το έτος 1985.»

Το εκθεσιακό υλικό του Μουσείου περιλαμβάνει τις εξής συλλογές: Αρχιτεκτονικά μέλη από την Επαυλη του Ηρώδη του Αττικού στην Εύα (Δολιανά Κυνουρίας), ευρήματα, κυρίως κεραμικά από νεκροταφεία ελληνιστικών χρόνων, μικροαντικείμενα και νομίσματα από διάφορες περιοχές της Κυνουρίας, επιγραφές από διάφορες θέσεις της Κυνουρίας.

Δυστυχώς ξεχάσαμε την ιστορική αλήθεια  πως έγινε το μουσείο και προβάλλουμε ένα υπάλληλο του ΥΠΠΟΑ , που σε τυχαίο χρόνο έκανε την δουλειά του .

Η ιδέα του μουσείου Άστρους ξεκίνησε και έγινε πραγματικότητα   από τον αείμνηστο σεβαστό  καθηγητή μας «αρχαίο Έλληνα»  Κυριάκο (Κούλη) Χασαπογιάννη (δεν  «μετατράπηκε» από κανέναν , «έγινε» από τον αείμνηστο σεβαστό  καθηγητή μας).

Kastanitsa of Arcadia

Kastanitsa is the first village of Tsakonia and one of the oldest villages of Parnon. We had no problem finding sources for our post, the problem was that we found many good sources. I’m sure there are other better ones than the ones we have below.

We all say our village is the best and the second village is Kastanitsa, the conclusion is easy ….. Someday we all have to visit Kastanitsa and on the chestnut festival even better ..

From our Municipality

The oldest Tsakonochori with the Tsakoniki dialect is still spoken by its inhabitants. The first written appearance of the village takes place in Chrysovoulos of Andronikos in 1293m. X. At an altitude of 840 meters and 152 kilometers from Athens and 72 from Tripoli, it is a historic preserved settlement with special architecture and white houses made of slate slabs from Malevo. The colored windows in houses, many of which are tower houses of more than 300 years and the flowers in gardens and courtyards, give an island color to the village that has been built between two green streams. Its inhabitants fought the Turkish conqueror in 1896 from the Castle of the village, from which the view is excellent. The chestnut forest of the area is of special beauty and recognized as a natural monument. In fact, the chestnut festival attracts many people, while the visitor can walk on beautiful natural routes, enjoy the unique landscape of Parnon and relax from the hustle and bustle of the city. The village has a guest house, small accommodation and a beautiful square with excellent views. While just outside the village is the church of Ag. Nikolaou and Panteleimonos Kontolinas. The church has been saved from the homonymous monastery of the 17th century. destroyed by Ibrahim’s army. Traces of fire can still be seen today, mainly in the dome. From this point begins the impressive gorge of Mazia, one of the many gorges of Parnon.

From the Ethnos

“Kour made the country of Namos” that is “Welcome to our village” “And for history, for the Tsakonians, he first speaks in the 9th century AD. the emperor of Byzantium Constantine the Purple-Born. Around 1000 AD. the Tsakonians left over from the great Slavic invasions began their peaceful work, necessary for their survival. A few years later – in 1293 AD – the first Tsakonochori, Kastanitsa, made its official written appearance. “

 Kastanitsa, perched on the slopes of Mount Parnon, at 840 m., Is the oldest Tsakonochori, with a history of more than seven centuries and one of the oldest mountain villages of Kynouria (s.s. belongs to the municipality of North Kynouria). Characterized since 1967 by the Ministry of Culture by Presidential Decree, a traditional – preserved settlement with special natural and architectural beauty, built on a narrow hill, stands out with its tower houses, painted white, with roofs of local slate Malevos and wood with bright colors on the doors and windows and flowered courtyards.

And why whites, in a mountainous settlement, in the heart of Parnona Because, once upon a time, Kastanitsa was famous for its production of lime, from where it got its color, and in which there were more than 30 traditional lime kilns for roasting lime.

The village retains unchanged elements of the Tsakonian tradition, while some elderly people from 30 – 40 permanent residents speak the Tsakonian dialect.

• How to get there: From Athens follow the route to Corinth, Tripoli, exit to Nafplio, Argos, Astros and from there either from Agios Andreas or from the villages of Platanos and Sitaina. You will travel 205 km. From Astros, Kastanitsa is 31 km, from Tripoli 71 km and from Sparta 65 km. From Thessaloniki calculate the 500 km to Athens and then the 205 km to your final destination.

• Accommodation / Food: In Kastanitsa operates the traditional guesthouse “Antoniou” which has 5 rooms. The tavern “To Stolidi” also operates in the hostel (tel. 27550 52255). For food, there are two other taverns, “O Parnon” in the square, “O Liakouris”, and a cafe. Other accommodation options are in Platanos (20 km), Polydroso in Laconia (11 km), Agios Petros (11.5 km), Astros (31 km), Parnonas shelter above the village of Vamvakou ( EOS Sparta) etc.

Kastanitsa Kastanitsa, a traditional and preserved settlement since 1967 with special natural and architectural beauty, built in the heart of Parnon at an altitude of 840 m. And at a distance of 31 km southwest of Astros. It used to be famous for its production of lime, from where it got its color, as well as for the chestnuts that gave it its name. The large chestnut forest that surrounds it has an area of ​​4,500 acres. It is one of the p older existing mountain villages of Kynouria and the oldest village of Parnonas. The first written report of the village is found in 1293 in a golden decree of the Byzantine emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos, in which Kastanitsa is listed as “Komi the so-called Constanta”. Since then and in the following centuries, according to written historical sources, its historical course has never been interrupted. Kastanitsa is built on a passage of strategic importance. During the 14th century a castle was built on the top of the hill above the settlement by Byzantines of the Despotate of Mystras, whose ruins are preserved to this day. The village actively participated in the revolution of 1821 with several chiefs and hundreds of ordinary freedom fighters. The people of Kastanitsa strongly resisted Ibrahim’s troops who invaded the area on July 27, 1826, on the day of St. Panteleimon, saving the village from destruction. In the subsequent struggles, Kastanitsa was present, culminating in the National Resistance 1941-44.

 The village preserves the traditional Tsakonian architecture with its characteristics, painted white, tower houses with local slate roofs, wooden balconies, bright colors in the windows and the flowered courtyards. The view from the hill – the Kapsampelis Tower (See p. 216) – at the top of the settlement, as well as from the renovated square, is excellent. It is surrounded by a dense and unspoiled forest of firs and chestnuts and is an ideal place for tranquility and walking tourism. In the center of the village dominates the patron church of the Transfiguration of the Savior, built around 1780. In 1810 and with the money of the late Kastanitsiotis Elias Manesi, an official of Catherine the Great but also by the founding members of the Friendly Society from 1818, it was built in Odessa and transferred to Kastanitsa the ornate wooden iconostasis of Russian style. dominates the center of the village. Along with the iconostasis at the same time were donated both large gilded manuals, which are still preserved in very good condition. Around the village there are 15 chapels excellently preserved, with the oldest being that of Agios Panteleimon. The folk festivals, which for centuries stood as points of reference and social and cultural creation of the ancestors, are preserved today with the most important one being the Transfiguration of the Savior on the 5th and 6th of August. An important annual cultural event is the “Forest Festival” during the first fortnight of August, and the “Chestnut Festival” which is organized every year on the last weekend of October (See page 274). The village has a very active Educational & Nature Association with many important activities and young children at the forefront. Important and with special characteristics are also the paths that connect Kastanitsa with the nearby settlements of Prastos, Sitaina and Platanos, but also the unique routes in the gorges of Mazia and Koutoupou-Zarbanitsa as well as the path that leads to Megali Tourla. A few kilometers outside of Kastanitsa is the Monastery of Kontolina (See p. 189).

The Tsakonian dialect is spoken by Leonidio, Pragmatefti, Melana, Tyros, Sapounakeika, Agios Andreas, Prasto, Sitaina, Kastanitsa. Settlements: Sampatiki, Livadi, Vaskina, Paliochora, Agios Panteleimonas (Fouska), Dernikeika

The Tsakonian dialect

The Tsakonian dialect, the Tsakonian dance, the costume, the customs and traditions of the Tsakonians, are another dynamic of the Parnon area. According to the “Chronicle of Monemvasia”: “And the prefectures and peasants of Thremte were settled in the rugged places adjacent to it, and finally the jaconia were named”. The Tsakones, as true descendants of the Dorians, kept their roots intact and the Tsakonian language is still the living expression of the Doric dialect. In the cradle of Tsakonia, today insists on walking and creating in the footsteps of yesterday in a perpetual and uninterrupted breath of Greece.

The special linguistic treasure of our place The Tsakonian dialect has been included in the list of endangered languages ​​of UNESCO and is recognized as a cultural achievement and a unique treasure of culture. The language was preserved genuine and unadulterated in the mouths of ordinary people, peasants, shepherds and farmers. In the wishes, in the greetings, in the curses, in the everyday expressions, in the teasing and the jokes, there is for centuries now the linguistic treasure of the Tsakonians. In this special part of the Greek land called Tsakonia (the cradle of Tsakonia was Prastos, Kastanitsa and Sitaina), in these rugged places, the inhabitants of the area, with few means, not only survived, but left behind a valuable heritage, the Tsakonian tradition, the beautiful language, the unique evocative Tsakonian dance, the Tsakonian trago yds, the weaving art, their habits, what we now call manners and customs. All this composes the identity of the place with a living language that is in the hands of the Tsakonians, but also of all Hellenism, to embrace it and protect it from oblivion

 Lime, chestnuts and celebration ·

For centuries, Kastanitsa was famous for its production of lime, which was baked in traditional kilns (once there were over 30 lime kilns in the village), while today, the houses, courtyards, churches and walls of Kastanitsa, continue to be whitewashed and white, like on an Aegean island. · The village is also famous for the chestnuts, which probably gave it its name. The large chestnut forest that surrounds it has an area of ​​4,500 acres and in the past, the chestnut harvest exceeded 400 tons. ·.

Η πρωτεύουσα του δήμου μας , το  ιστορικό Άστρος, απουσιάζει διαχρονικά χωρίς ντροπή από την ιστοσελίδα του δήμου μας .

DCIM101MEDIADJI_0187.JPG

Σχεδόν πριν τρία χρόνια ( Ιανουάριος 2020) κάναμε το κόπο να καταγράψουμε λεπτομερέστερα τα μικρά και μεγάλα λάθη της ιστοσελίδας του δήμου μας, για να βοηθήσουμε τους αρμόδιους της ιστοσελίδας να κάνουν τα αυτονόητα και  τις απαραίτητες διορθώσεις για μια καλύτερη προβολή του τόπου μας. Η περιβόητη ανάπτυξη δεν θα έρθει μόνη της, αν δεν κουνάμε και εμείς τα χέρια μας.

Δεν είμαστε ειδικοί, αλλά θεωρούμε αναγκαίο να προσθέσουμε ότι η υπάρχουσα ιστοσελίδα είναι τεχνικά καλή και είναι δυνατό να  βελτιωθεί , αλλά το πρόβλημα  είναι τα θέματα που απουσιάζουν και τα κείμενα  «θέλουν λίγη δουλειά». ΜΠΟΡΟΥΜΕ ΚΑΛΥΤΕΡΑ .Άμα θέλουμε, με λίγη φαντασία και λίγη δουλειά  μπορούμε να φτιάξουμε την ιστοσελίδα καλύτερα ,  για να προβάλλουμε τον τόπο μας έξυπνα,χωρίς έξοδα και αποτελεσματικά.

Ο δήμος «ξέχασε» διαχρονικά  την πρωτεύουσα , το ιστορικό Άστρος.

Παραθέτουμε  παρακάτω  ,μόνο για δύο θέματα, τι λέγαμε πριν τρία χρόνια, που είναι πολύ επίκαιρα σήμερα.

«Eίναι αδιανόητο στη ιστοσελίδα ενός δήμου να μην υπάρχει σελίδα για την πρωτεύουσα του δήμου με ένα μικρό κείμενο, συγκεκριμένα για  το Άστρος, και να υπάρχουν σελίδες που γίνονται σύνδεσμοι  για 11 άλλα  χωριά του δήμου, αυτό είναι παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ ερασιτεχισμού, στενοκεφαλιάς και στραβομάρας.»

Αυτή η στενοκεφαλιά είναι παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ Γκίνες . Δεν υπάρχει άλλη ιστοσελιδα δήμου στον πλανήτη γη που  δεν έχει  μια σελίδα για την πρωτεύουσα του δήμου.Αυτό γίνεται διαχρονικά χωρίς ντροπη μόνο στο δήμο μας.

Έχει μαλλιάσει η γλώσσα μας … και δεν ντρεπόμαστε….να το θυμίζουμε.Δείτε τον σύνδεσμο.

 Άστρος : Aφιερώνεται στο δήμο μας και στο τοτικό συμβούλιο της κοινότητας Άστρους για το Επιχειρησιακό Πρόγραμμα και την ιστοσελίδα τους

«Σε διαφορετική παρακάτω  σελίδα στην ιστοσελίδα του δήμου μας  μετρήσαμε  39  “Αξιοθέατα” για όλο το δήμο μας, όπως τα Φαράγγια της  Μαζιάς και της Ζαρμπάνιτσας,  αλλά δεν βρήκαμε πουθενά τίποτα για το Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Άστρους και για τα  δύο σπουδαιότερα μνημεία του δήμου μας, τη Σχολή Καρυτσιώτη του Αγιάννη με το παράρτημα της στο Άστρος (που στεγάζεται το μουσείο Άστρους)  και τoν «Ιερό Χώρο»  της Β’ Εθνοσυνέλευσης των  Ελλήνων,»

 Το “AΙΣΧΟΣ ΤΗΣ ΘΥΡΕΑΣ”

Έχει μαλλιάσει η γλώσσα μας …  και δεν ντρεπόμαστε…. να προβάλλουμε τα  σπουδαιότερα συγκριτικά πλεονεκτήματα του δήμου μας , τον «Ιερό Χώρο» της Β’ Εθνοσυνέλευσης των Ελλήνων και τη Σχολή Καρυτσιώτη. Δεν χρειάζεται να είσαι νευροχειρουργός για να το καταλάβεις. Χρειάζεται να υπάρχει κοινός νους  και θέληση . Είναι εδώ μπροστά μας , ΑΥΤΑ ΈΧΟΥΜΕ. Δεν μπορούμε να το πούμε καλύτερα , δείτε το παρακάτω σύνδεσμο.

Ο τονισμός δικός μας

Από την σελίδα του δήμου μας , δείτε τα λάθη ,τις αντιφάσεις  και τους σολοικισμούς…ΜΠΟΡΟΥΜΕ ΚΑΛΥΤΕΡΑ.

«Τα επόμενα χρόνια, έγινε σχολείο και το 1959, έγινε αρχαιολογικό μουσείο. Το 2008 έκλεισε λόγω ζημιών που προκλήθηκαν από σεισμό.

Παραχωρήθηκε στην Εφορεία Αρχαιοτήτων από τον Δήμο Άστρους και μετά από σημαντικές επισκευές και συντηρήσεις μετατράπηκε σε Μουσείο της Κυνουρίας από τον έφορο Αρχαιοτήτων κ. Θ. Σπυρόπουλο, το έτος 1985.»

Το εκθεσιακό υλικό του Μουσείου περιλαμβάνει τις εξής συλλογές: Αρχιτεκτονικά μέλη από την Επαυλη του Ηρώδη του Αττικού στην Εύα (Δολιανά Κυνουρίας), ευρήματα, κυρίως κεραμικά από νεκροταφεία ελληνιστικών χρόνων, μικροαντικείμενα και νομίσματα από διάφορες περιοχές της Κυνουρίας, επιγραφές από διάφορες θέσεις της Κυνουρίας.

Δυστυχώς ξεχάσαμε την ιστορική αλήθεια  πως έγινε το μουσείο και προβάλλουμε ένα υπάλληλο του ΥΠΠΟΑ , που σε τυχαίο χρόνο έκανε την δουλειά του .

Η ιδέα του μουσείου Άστρους ξεκίνησε και έγινε πραγματικότητα   από τον αείμνηστο σεβαστό  καθηγητή μας «αρχαίο Έλληνα»  Κυριάκο (Κούλη) Χασαπογιάννη (δεν  «μετατράπηκε» από κανέναν , «έγινε» από τον αείμνηστο σεβαστό  καθηγητή μας).

In 1826 Ibrahim Pasha completely destroyed the village, as well as all the other villages of Kynouria. According to tradition, the villagers took refuge in the cave of Zaggoli. In the following years Sitaina became the seat of the Sitaini Community.

The village

The village is full of firs and various trees, while, like the other Tsakonochoria, it has many mansions – tower houses, samples of Tsakonian architecture. Sitaina has two churches: Taxiarches and Agios Ioannis Theologos. Near the top of Parnon, there is the church of Profitis Ilias.

Near the village there is the fortified church of Panagia Zaggoli, mentioned by the traveler William Martin Lake in 1805. The inhabitants of Sitaina took refuge in this cave, after its destruction by Ibrahim. Nearby are the gorges of Loulouga, Koutoupou, Zarbanitsa and Mazia, where hiking and mountaineering takes place. Near Sitaina are the villages of Prastos, Kastanitsa, Arcadia, Platanos, Arcadia, etc.

From the “Mount Parnon and Moustos Wetland Management Agency, 2015. Guide for the protected area of ​​Mount Parnon and Moustos Wetland. Nature, Culture, Ecotourism. Astros of Arcadia “.

 The Tsakonian dialect is spoken by Leonidio, Pragmatefti, Melana, Tyros, Sapounakeika, Agios Andreas, Prasto, Sitaina, Kastanitsa. Settlements: Sampatiki, Livadi, Vaskina, Paliochora, Agios Panteleimonas (Fouska), Dernikeika

The Tsakonian dialect

The Tsakonian dialect, the Tsakonian dance, the costume, the customs and traditions of the Tsakonians, are another dynamic of the Parnon area. According to the “Chronicle of Monemvasia”: “And the prefectures and peasants of Thremte were settled in the rugged places adjacent to it, and finally the jaconia were named”. The Tsakones, as true descendants of the Dorians, kept their roots intact and the Tsakonian language is still the living expression of the Doric dialect. In the cradle of Tsakonia, today insists on walking and creating in the footsteps of yesterday in a perpetual and uninterrupted breath of Greece.

The special linguistic treasure of our place The Tsakonian dialect has been included in the list of endangered languages ​​of UNESCO and is recognized as a cultural achievement and a unique treasure of culture. The language was preserved genuine and unadulterated in the mouths of ordinary people, peasants, shepherds and farmers. In wishes, in greetings, in curses, in everyday expressions, in teasing and jokes, there is for centuries now the linguistic treasure of the Tsakonians. In this special part of the Greek land called Tsakonia (the birthplace of Tsakonia was Prastos, Kastanitsa and Sitaina), in these rugged places, the inhabitants of the area, with few means, not only survived, but left behind a valuable heritage, the Tsakonian tradition, the beautiful language, the unique evocative Tsakonian dance, the Tsakonian songs, the weaving art, their habits, what we call today customs and traditions. All this composes the identity of the place with a living language that is in the hands of the Tsakonians, but also of all Hellenism, to embrace it and protect it from oblivion

Platanos of Arcadia

From our Municipality A picturesque village built on the southeast side of Parnonas at an altitude of 450 meters, is 180 kilometers from Athens. The settlement has been characterized as a preserved traditional and the visitor is enchanted at first sight by the rich vegetation and the many waters that he faces when he reaches the village.

The village is known for its microclimate and its water. “Like Platanos, you will not find water anywhere else. With one sip you do not want a doctor, with two you find a match “. The old watermill, the stone fountain, the imposing church, the alleys, the Fire of Fate that meets whoever arrives in the village offer images that relax and calm the mind and soul. Those looking for adventure and direct contact with nature can find it by exploring the Cave Canyon.

In the area there is the Cave of Sotiros or Sosimos, you can also go hiking in the gorge of Lepida. The fauna of the area is also rich, while the feasts of love, water and moons in August with the filling of the Moon and the feasts of cherries in May are special and well-known. Nearby the villages of Haradros and Sitaina with rich vegetation and incomparable natural beauty.

From the “Mount Parnon and Moustos Wetland Management Agency, 2015. Guide for the protected area of ​​Mount Parnon and Moustos Wetland. Nature, Culture, Ecotourism. Astros of Arcadia “.

 Platanos is known for its climate and its water. The marble inscription on the fountain in the central square “warns”: Like Platanos you will not find water in other places with one sip you do not want a doctor with two you find a match. Platanos is 20 km from Astros and is built amphitheatrically, at an altitude of 450 m. On the northeast side of Mount Parnon, at the base of a green ravine. It is surrounded by beautiful and unspoiled natural environment full of chestnuts, pines, plane trees and firs. Platanos is a picturesque village full of narrow cobbled streets, stone houses, plenty of water, but also many fruit trees, such as cherries, pears, walnuts. His houses retain the main elements of the local architecture, which is combined with island elements.

At the entrance of the village is the central cobbled square with the first waterfall of the village “Chares” and impressive rich vegetation. The central church of the village is Agia Anna, while there are two more post-Byzantine churches, Agios Georgios and Agios Theodoros with elaborate hagiographies. Also of interest is the Tower of Squadron with a defensive corner construction (18th century), which is a typical tower house. Opposite the village, an emblematic rock with the name “Kalogeros”, due to its shape, provides a wonderful view to the village, but also to Parnonas.

Southeast of the village, near the bridge begins the idyllic gorge of Spilakia (See p. 121) with dense vegetation and abundant water that ends in the river Vrasiatis. Another path, shortly after the bridge, leads to the chapel of Agiorgis. In the area of ​​the gorge there is the Cave of the Savior or Sosimos, which during the years of the Revolution became a refuge for the inhabitants of the village due to the rage of Ibrahim’s soldiers. The visitor can also enjoy the nature of the area by hiking in the gorge of Lepida (See p. 119). Another path, between the terraces where the Platanites cultivate their orchards, leads to the Monastery of the Assumption of the Virgin or Sela, as it is known, in an area of ​​exceptional beauty. The ornate frescoes of the Monastery represent martyrdoms, with direct references to the period of Ottoman rule.

The permanent residents of Platanos are few, but in summer the village comes to life. Rich cultural events are organized throughout the year, such as the famous “Feast of Cherries, Waters and Love” (See p. 282), the “Feast of Chestnuts and Figs”, the original “Backgammon Meeting” tournament, the “Full Moons” And many others.

Watermills and Water Mill :.

In the central square of Platanos is the Barkaikos watermill and next to it the two-story traditional stone fountain. It is the only mill of the four that the village used to have, with an internal mechanism that still works by grinding wheat and corn serving local needs, while at the same time it is a museum space for the visitors of the village. Next to and just below the Barakaikos watermill is the Perraean water mill or dristella (See p. 219). Before the ravine there is the Latsaikos watermill which is covered by large centuries-old plane trees.

Nymphs Waterfall & single-arched bridge: Descending to the ravine, the well-maintained path leads to the Nymphs Waterfall. The waterfall is about 10 m high and is surrounded by lush vegetation and imposing plane trees. The spot is especially popular with nature lovers especially in summer. Crossing on the path, parallel to the river, we meet the old single-arched bridge (See p. 354)

The stone bridge of Platanos:

The single-arched stone bridge of Platanos is a part of the history and tradition of the village. Nowadays its usability has been limited, however its beauty abounds. Built at the beginning of the 19th century, it served the daily needs of the inhabitants, as it connected Platanos with the coastal Kynouria. The conductors and shepherds of Platanos transported their wares and herds using this bridge, especially in winter, as the only passage to Eastern Kynouria and Argolida. In addition, residents of neighboring villages (Agios Ioannis, Orini Meligous, Haradros, etc.) easily transported their cereals to the watermills of Platanos located near the bridge. Today, the need to maintain and enhance the stone bridge – which is an integral part of Platanos’s physiognomy and is of particular cultural interest – is imperative, as the rapid water volumes collected by Lepida (Lepida waterfall) and the surrounding torrents, which in They end up in the river Vrasiatis, they may possibly threaten this beautiful monument of the village in the future.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Platanos is a village, which is located amphitheatrically built on the slopes of Mount Parnonas. Administratively it belongs to the Municipality of North Kynouria in the Prefecture of Arcadia. It has a distance of 180 km from Athens and 22 km from Paralio Astros. It is surrounded by many plane trees of hundreds of years, hence the name of the village. It has the form of an island with alleys where no cars can enter. The inhabitants claim that their origin is from an island, probably Aegina. It has been declared a traditional settlement. Next to the village flows the river Vrasiatis. Due to the river, many public fountains and ditches in the alleys have been created in the village. It borders the village of Haradros, Agios Ioannis and the Tsakonian village of Sitaina. At a distance of 2 km from the village is the gorge of Lepida

History

Platanos is mentioned for the first time in the Chronicle of the Fall of Georgios Sfrantzis in 1435, with the name Platamonas. In the following years, he refers to several documents during the Venetian period. Before and during the Second Ottoman Empire (18th and 19th century) the village flourished, along with other neighboring villages. At the same time, several mansions and tower houses were built. The contribution of the village was important during the Revolution of 1821. In 1826, Ibrahim passed through the village but the inhabitants were saved because they hid in a cave on the opposite hill which the inhabitants still call “troupa”. There is an oven and a cistern inside.

After the liberation, it became the seat of the municipality of Platanountos, while in the following years, after its merger with the Municipality of Thyreas, it became the seat of the homonymous community.

The village

In Platanos, due to its abundant waters, watermills, water saws and water mills used to operate. The inhabitants are mainly engaged in the cultivation of agricultural products, such as cherries, chestnuts, figs, but also tomatoes and various squash. The ancients remember the fields full of lanterns at night where the inhabitants went and watered them. Also, half of the population of the village was once engaged in animal husbandry. Now there are 3-4 families. The traditional musical instruments of the village are the lute and the violin. The organ players were invited to festivals and weddings in the neighboring villages.

In the village there are 5 churches: Agios Georgios, which is located on the opposite hill and is considered the first church of the village. According to tradition, the first settlement was located there, Agioi Theodoroi, located at the top of the village. Beyond Panagia, located on the second hill to the right of the village, surrounded by water and terraces of residents plowing. The area there is called Sela and used to be a monastery which was built at the end of the 15th century. and was hagiographed by Georgios Koulidas. According to tradition, the church took its name from a Turkish aga, who placed a golden saddle in order to save his child from an illness, which was eventually saved. In the church lived monks who were hanged by the Turks. A fountain and concrete benches have been created in the area of ​​the chapel. There, on Easter Tuesday, there was a celebration with organ players.

The church of the Transfiguration of the Savior is located at the top of the village and is open every year on August 6. And this church was formerly a monastery (18th century) where monks had cells. Finally, the church of Agios Petros, located next to the community office of the President of the village. The central church of the village is Agia Anna, whose sleep is celebrated on July 25, with an image procession in the alleys of the village. The church has a half-burned icon from the raid of Ibrahim. In the old days, in the neighborhood

The market of the village called Karakala was concentrated, with a barber shop, a grocery store and two wine shops.

The hostel has been operating in the village since 2010 with coffee and food. There are 2 more cafes. The visitors are mainly climbers and nature lovers, who hike in the gorge of Lepida, on the bridge that leads to the old road to Astros called Skala and served the people before the road network. They are still hiking on the old Platanos-Sitaina path.

Το “AΙΣΧΟΣ ΤΗΣ ΘΥΡΕΑΣ” και πέντε δημόσιες προτάσεις

Αφιερώνεται στο Δήμο Βόρειας Κυνουρίας και στην Θυρεάτιδα Γη.

Σωστά και δίκαια η σελίδα στην ιστοσελίδα του δήμου μας  Archaiological Sights & Museums | DiscoverKynouria.gr  θεωρείται το “AΙΣΧΟΣ ΤΗΣ ΘΥΡΕΑΣ”.

Πως να το κάνουμε εμείς και πολλοί συμπολίτες μας στην συντριπτική τους πλειοψηφία, ας μην πούμε όλοι οι συμπολίτες μας, δεν πιστεύουμε ότι τα σπουδαιότερα αξιοθέατα του δήμου μας για να αναφέρονται στη ιστοσελίδα του δήμου μας είναι το Λιμάνι Αγίου Ανδρέα , το Ελληνικό (ή Τειχιό) ,τα Φαράγγια της Μαζιάς και της Ζαρμπάνιτσας, αλλά είναι πολύ σπουδαιότερα που επίσης πρέπει να αναφέρονται τα δύο σπουδαιότερα μνημεία του δήμου μας o «Ιερός Χώρος» της Β’ Εθνοσυνέλευσης των Ελλήνων και η Σχολή Καρυτσιώτη του Αγιάννη με το παράρτημα της στο Άστρος (που στεγάζεται το μουσείο Άστρους) .

Mountainous Meligou Arcadia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia “

The mountainous Meligou of Arcadia, is a mountainous, traditional settlement [of Kynouria. It is built at an altitude of 616 m., At a distance of 12 km west of Astros and next to the village of Agios Ioannis. Administratively it belongs to the Municipality of North Kynouria

History

Orini Meligou is mentioned for the first time in the Chronicle of Moreos by Georgios Sfrantzis in the year 1435 with the name Meligou. The name “Meligou” is of Slavic origin and comes from the tribe of Milingos (or Melingos), who together with the Ezerites settled in the 9th century. in Parnonas, leaving many place names. In the 17th and 18th c. Meligou developed and became one of the richest and most powerful villages in the area along with Agios Ioannis, Agios Petros, Platanos and others. Meligou’s contribution to the Revolution of 1821 was important, as many Meligiotes took part in various battles such as the Bervens, the Dolians, the Tripolitsakas. In 1826, Orini Meligou was completely destroyed by the armies of Ibrahim Pasha, while other villages in the area had the same fate. After the liberation, Meligou became part of the Municipality of Thyreas (based in Agios Ioannis and Astros), while its inhabitants settled permanently in Meliggiotika Kalivia (today’s Winter of Meligou, Arcadia).

The village

Orini Meligou, is built on the slope of a lush and green mountain. The village is full of traditional mansions, fountains, taverns and churches. In the village, there is the church of Agios Georgios with the cemetery and Panagia, which celebrates on September 8. Nearby from the village, there are the chapels of Agios Savvas, Profitis Ilias and Agia Triada, a former monastery built in the 17th century. To the north of the village are the remains of an ancient outpost, at Spathokommeno. In the village take place every year events and festivals, with the most important of the Virgin Mary (September 7-8) and the Holy Trinity. In winter the village is left with few inhabitants, since most of the inhabitants go down to Meligou “

 Wall – Greek

Nearby opposite Ano Meligou is the Wall – El At a distance of about 5 km from Astros at the top of the hill above the bends “kodeles” at a short distance from the uphill road to Agiannis is the Greek Wall, from there the view of Thyratida Gis and the Argolic gulf is excellent . At the point there is an inscription of the archeological service that leads to a rural road and after 2 kilometers the visitor reaches a plateau, which is the beginning of a 15 minute walk that leads to the top of a hill, the Wall or Elliniko. Here one can see the ruins of the ancient sanctuary of the god Apollo, ruins of walls, buildings and underground tanks and relics of the Upper Thyrea or for some others of the Nereid.

Holy Triada

From FBMeligios Symposium

About Meligou

MELIGIOTIS SYMPOSIUM · MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2019 ·

Meligou as we should know is a Village of Kynouria, a Community of the former Municipality of Thyrea and now an Apartment of the Municipality of North Kynouria. The most similar of Meligos are its two parts “in one body and one heart”, the Upper Meligou (Spring house, or Mountainous Meligou, or the “Village”) and the Lower Meligou (Winter house, or Pedini Meligou, or the ” Gialos “, or” Kalivia Meligous “). It is inhabited by the Meligiotes or Meligites, and in addition to Gialos have settled many xenohorites from the mountains of Kynouria (Platanites and Verveniotes mainly, but not only) assimilated. The closest, to a misunderstanding, village in Meligou is Agiannis or Astros, which is the seat of the Municipality of North Kynouria. Some additional information about our village:

1.HISTORY

Our village “Meligou”, as it is officially called today, owes its name – experts say – to the Meligos or Miligos Slavs, who during the middle ages (6th-7th etc. centuries), settled at the foot of the mountains “Parnos” or “Malevos” (as we call it) and “Taygetos” and especially for us in today’s “Orini Meligou” and in fact in the places “Koutri” and “Meliggaria” where there are obvious traces of old settlements and locations with Slavic names.

The descent of the Slavs in the Peloponnese during the Middle Ages, their attitude towards the empire and the Franks and the eventual assimilation with the Greekness of the area and the majority of the population is a great chapter of continuous study for historians and archaeologists.

The “Chronicle of Moreos”, an unknown text of the 14th century, gives information about the Slavs of the Peloponnese, including the Milingos or Meligos (drougos or drogos of Miligos or Meligoi which consisted of Slavic and Greek or ambiguous villages).

Furthermore, Meligou (ie the primitive settlement in the mountainous part) is also known in the year 1435 AD, where it is mentioned by George Frantzis as “Meligon” along with other neighboring villages that still exist today.

During the period (1683-1699), when the Venetian-Turkish dispute over the sovereignty in the Peloponnese was raging, and specifically in 1687, our village is mentioned again in code number 61 of the Monastery of Iveron on Mount Athos by Theophylaktos Agorastos who notes that ” Meimet Pasha came and not wanting the villages to worship him, they enslaved and burned Agios Ioannis, in Melingou, Kastanitsa, etc.

” In the year 1700, during the Venetian occupation, Meligou is mentioned in the census of Grimani as a village in the region of Agios Petros with 43 families (about 160 inhabitants).

During the 18th and 19th centuries our village is mentioned by European visitors, travelers or even spies of that time.

2. ADMINISTRATION

During the second Turkish occupation and the Revolution until 1833, Meligou was administratively part of the Province of Agios Petros. In 1833-1834 Meligou was included in the Province of Kynouria as a Community of the Municipality of Thyrea. With the abolition of the old Municipalities in 1914, Meligou was named as Community of Meligou with a single geographical area, the Mountainous and Winter Meligou. With the introduction of the “Kapodistrias” and “Kallikratis” systems, Meligou is today a Community Department of the Municipality of North Kynouria.

The administrative affiliation of Meligos is in the Province of Kynouria in the Prefecture of Arcadia in the Peloponnese Region

Judicially, Meligou belongs to the Court of First Instance and the Court of Appeal of Nafplio. Meligou as a whole occupies about 25,000 acres of open space and its population is about 900 inhabitants.

3. IDENTITY

 During the second Turkish occupation, the Meligiotes, who owned land in the so-called field of Astros, built makeshift houses on the edge of the plain, where they remained for a while, as long as it was necessary for the cultivation of the estates. Over time these buildings became ground floor houses and were named “Kalivia Meligous” or “Meleggitika or Melig iotika Kalivia ”and were the winter residence of the inhabitants. The huts became normal houses, two-storey, the people got rid of the fear of various dangers from the sea and the plague of malaria of the swamp of lake “Moustos” and we arrived today where the main residence of the people of Meligioti is in Pedini or Winter or Kato Meligou or in “Gialos”, while Orini or Apano Meligou or “Chorio”, is a place of recreation and festivals at every opportunity.

“Chorio” is located at an altitude of about 600 meters and “Gialos” about 50 meters above sea level.

“SOUGELOS – WATER MILL – MOTHER OF WATER

These monuments in Kato Meligou were once monumental works for the survival of the inhabitants of the Village. They were built before the liberation by the Turks and the water followed the course from the spring (Mana) with an open aqueduct (Sougelos from the Turkish homonymous su yollari), passed through the imposing Mill Mill of the Watermill to the chapel of Agiorgis, by two stone bridges of the two torrents of Meligos (one survives), from intermediate reservoirs and ended in three public fountains in the village for water supply and in earthen ditches for irrigation. The oldest written reference that has been found so far for these monuments is the notarial contractor of the year 1837 with which the Special Assistant Meligous commissioned the repair of the Mother of Water and Sougelos to a carpenter (“mason”) from Kastri. The course from Meligou along Sougelos to Mylovagenos and from there to Mana tou Nero is for every visitor a true course of history in the natural environment, which is worth experiencing. “

“Mana tou Nerou” is also the name of the spring above the monastery of Loukous, from which Astros and Kato Doliana were supplied with water by Karytsiotis. Two hundred years ago, Karytsiotis donated the school to us and brought us water in the village to pay for the school’s teachers from the farm.”

We bravely borrowed photos and texts from our friends Meligiotes

Charadros of Arcadia

From the “Mount Parnon and Moustos Wetland Management Agency, 2015. Guide for the protected area of ​​Mount Parnon and Moustos Wetland. Nature, Culture, Ecotourism. Astros of Arcadia “.

Haradros is a beautiful semi-mountainous village, 17 km southwest of Astros, on the northeastern slopes of Mount Parnon, built at an altitude of 568 m. Large and small hills, varied ridges, slopes with olive trees, streams and gorges compose the landscape.

The Haradros land becomes more beautiful with the color compositions and contrasts it acquires in the seasons. Remarkable archeological sites are observed on the borders of the village, such as the Cave of Asoulas (Ai Giorgis) (See p. 126), with timeless habitation from the Neolithic period to the Byzantine times, and the ancient prison at Elliniko, just before entrance to the village, which is preserved in very good condition. The few inhabitants of the village today are engaged in the cultivation of olives and livestock. The oldest church of Haradros is the Prophet Elias, which according to tradition has been built on the ruins of an older church. He is the patron saint of the village and celebrates on the 20th of July. In the village stand out the renovated school (1927) and the fountain Variko (1937) with its two very tall plane trees. At a distance of 2 km southeast of Haradros are Agioi Asomatoi, a small settlement that was once the winter home for the inhabitants of Vourvourou.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
