SALAMINA

Salamis lies in the small bay opposite Piraeus, Elefsina and Megara.

Its name still evokes its illustrious past. Salamis, birthplace of the tragic poet Euripides, made its mark on history with the famous battle in 480 B.C., when the Greeks routed the fleet of Xerxes, consolidating the Greek miracle.

Today the ferries linking Perama and Paloukia plough the strait where the battle was fought.

Pausanias in his guide speaks about Salamis, mentioning the Agora and the ruins of the temple of Aiakos and the related mysteries. He also refers to the Sanctuaries of Asclepius, Dionysus and Artemis. Echoes of the Byzantine era are also present, in the convent of the Virgin Faneromeni and the remarkable frescoes in its church.

Today's tourists will also enjoy the sandy beaches of Iliakti, Moulki, Kanakia and Peristeria.
