Beautifully Maintained Cemetery
Cemeteries may all serve the same purpose, but it's always interesting to see how they look elsewhere. This one in Pythagorion impressed me - beautifully maintained & such ornate gravestones.
It can be found in the churchyard in a quiet spot up by the old castle ruins. Well worth a visit to admire the lavish marble work.
Spend a few moments with Pythagoras!
Everyone has heard of this guy & here he is in Samos - well he was born & brought up right here around 580BC! He later died in Italy. He is known for being one of the most famous mathematicians ever! So great that they named a whole resort on Samos after him; 'Pythagorion'.
This monument depicts the mathematical theory discovered by Pythagoras & which he is ultimately famous for sharing with us all! I won't even begin to try & explain it - read all about it here!
"More then a beautiful island"
Already famous greek philosophers where living on this island, e.g. Pythagoras. Cleopatra was spending here "holidays" on this island and a lot of other historical VIPs where spending there time on this beautiful place. Therefore you can see a lot of historical sights on Samos. The ocean invites with crystal clear water for a bath and the food is just delicious...Beside of this the Greek island Samos is situated very close to Turkey. The lights of the Turkish city Kusadasi you can see by night from some of the Samos beaches.
Come and find out some about the island Samos together with me...
"Samos by night"
When I visited Samos it was really hot... already at 9 am it was warmer then 35 degree Celsius. And it was wonderful when the AC in the rental car was running or the sun fell and we could wander through the town SAMOS and a little breese of fresh air blew.
But Samos is all suffering in hot sun wearth, even I would visit it next time not in the highest summer season.
"and many, many more impressions..."
The people living on Samos are very friendly. We where getting lost on the streets of Samos with our car and a man on the street just helped us with a long explanation. While we were looking quite confused and listened to him, we realized we are more and more blocking the street for other cars. But no one was angry, they where just waiting until the man was finised with his explanation. A thing I never would have expected - not in Germany and not at all in a southern country where the horn is used even much more.
