Il #tunnel (o acquedotto) di Eupalino è una delle maggiori conquiste tecniche del VI secolo a.C. ed è considerato da molti come l’ottava #meraviglia dell’#antichità. L’accuratezza della sua costruzione indica l’alta conoscenza architettonica che avevano gli ingegneri greci dell’epoca. Il “amfistomon orygma” (il tunnel dalle due aperture), come lo chiama lo storico #Erodoto, fu costruito durante la tirannia di Policrate allo scopo di alimentare d’acqua l’antica capitale di #Samos. Il progetto fu realizzato dall’architetto Eupalino, nel 550 a.C. circa e fu utilizzato fino al periodo tardo-romano. Oggi è uno dei monumenti più importanti di tutta l’isola.Δείτε τη μετάφραση http://buff.ly/2r2CFzy’acquedotto-di-eupalino,-una-vera-meraviglia-del-mondo-antico

Narrow #alleys, shops of unique #aesthetics, #dining and #entertainment venues, offering relaxing and #dreamy #vacations. #Kokkari combines green with sea blue, as the thick vegetation reaches the seashores. Its verdant mountains with springs that flow all year round, are accessible from the village, through well-kept trails that are ideal for #hiking. It is the departure point of hiking trails leading to Vourliotes, Mitilinii and the top of Mount Karvounis. Orchids grown in the region are among the most impressive and they are exported worldwide. You can enjoy a swim at the amazing beaches of #Tsamadou, #Lemonakia and #Tsampou, as well as at the beach in the village. For lovers of #windsurfing there is a learning school. Among the village’s attractions is the church of St. Nicholas, one of the largest churches of #Samos.

The #Tunnel of #Efpalinos or Efpalinian Aqueduct is one of the greatest technical #achievements of the 6th century BC and is considered by many to be the #8th #wonder of the ancient #world. Its extremely accurate construction reveals the #great architectural knowledge that Greek #engineers had at that time. The “amfistomon (double-ended) orygma”, as the ancient historian #Herodotus calls it, was built during the tyranny of #Polycrates to supply the ancient capital of Samos with water. The tunnel was built by the architect Efpalinos, around 550 BC and was used until the Late Roman period. Today is one of the most important #monuments of the island and from #2017 the #visitors can cross it (1036m). #ancientgreece #getaway #history #visitsamos #discoversamos
