Dimitsana, Gortynia - A miracle on Mount Mainalon
Sunday, 14 January 2018
The place where the Gunpowder Mills of the 1821 Revolution (against the Ottoman Turks) were hidden and the birthplace of Patriarch Gregory V, who was hanged by the Turks in Constantinople. The village’s library has thousands of rare books -and it would have had many more if Theodore Kolokotronis’ men had not shredded the paper, with tears in their eyes, in order to make bandoliers for their Carlo E. Figli riffles (known in Greece simply as Kariofili riffles). Dimitsana does not only stir up emotions of national pride for Greeks but also satisfies the senses. Wherever one stands, he or she can see wild mountains and running water. In the morning, visitors are awoken by sheep bells and the sound of axes splitting wood in half. In the tavernas, one can eat omelet with salted pork and coq au vin with a side of hylopites, a type of Greek noodles. It is an amazing winter resort!

It houses exhibits through which the Greek roots of Cyprus magically unfold. Fortunately, it survived the Turkish invasion in 1974.
Instead of leaving Greece in to work abroad they founded a business in their homeland. They are successful and they don’t wallow in self pity. It’s like they’re living in a different country and not crisis struck, depressed Greece.
