N. Anhialos (Honouring my father's land)

The ruins of  Pyrasos

New Anchialos is located in Magnesia in Central Greece. 30 years before it was a small village but now it has become an almost small city.
N. Anchialos took its name from from the greek refugees who fled from the city Anchialos in 1906 when the bulgarian troops occupied the city.They chose the spcific site for their new home because it was a coastal place . N. Anchialos is built over the ruins of the ancient city of Pyrassos.
Everyone who visits the N. Anchialos can see the remnants of the old akropolis and many columns of themples of the Roman era.
Nowadays the small city is inhabited also by people who came from the surrounding villages
as there were many financial opportunities in a new society. The great development over the last years brought many tourists in the city. The coastal road is only for walkers and along there are many bars,clubs and coffeeshops. The sandy beach is big enough and the sea is clear.

Magnesia undoubtely offers us much better touristic spots like Pelion or the islands called Sporades.However i think that it would be right to show less advertised touristic spots.N.Anchialos is one of them. It's worth visiting

Korinth is only 100kms away from Athens.
You can take a bus or rent a car in order to reach Akrokorinthos.Akrokorinthos is an archaeological sight situated near the village of ancient Corinth and the modern city Korinthos.
You can see there the notorious Apollo temple , you can climb the hill and see the fortifications and the ruins of buildings of different ages(Roman,medieval,Turkish).
Near Akrokorinth, for those who get bored with archaeological sights , there are many beautiful beaches at the nearby coastal region like Kiato, xilokastro and diminio.At summer these touristic spots have an active nightlife as also does Korinthos.
Well let me return to the main subject. Akrokorinth isn't advertised so much by the greek ministry of tourism .Nevertheless it is a worth seeing archaelogical sight.
Akrokorinthos is near my home so that's why i begin my blog with it. Historically Akrokorinthos was the place where ancient Corinth was founded and expanded. The great hill served as a protection from enemy invasions. Every greek city in the past had an acropolis(hilltop castles).Gradually these hilltops served also as spiritual areas with the construction of temples dedicated to the protector god of the city.
