Few countries in the world has such an interesting history as
Greece has. There are thousands of ancient sites and Byzantine
monasteries and churches, as well as buildings constructed by
invaders through the times, such as the Venetians, the
Crusaders, the British and the Turks.
Most people are interested in the ancient remains, and there are
constantly new discoveries of ancient remains. The ancient
Greeks built important constructions outside of today's borders
as well, for example in Turkey, Italy and Egypt.
This site will deal with historical sites you can visit in
modern Greece, and in time, we hope to be able to present a very
wide range of places to visit.
As you probably know, there is something historical to be found
all over the country, on the mainland as well as on the islands.
This page will give you information about larger archaeological
sites like Knossos, Olympia and Delphi, as well as whole areas
of other interest like Meteora. Therefore, you will not find
separate temples or monasteries here like Heraion or Odysseus
tomb. In stead, they are mentioned on their respective place, in
this case Samos and Cephalonia.
