GUIDE TURISTIKE I HIMARÅS ÔÏÕÑÉÓÔÉÊÏÓ ÏÄÇÃÏÓ ×ÉÌÁÑÁÓ TOURIST GUIDE OF HIMARA

Dear Readers We welcome you to the municipality of Himara, where the green of the endless olive groves intertwines with the diaphanous blue of the Ionian sea and the azure of the sky in a perfect harmony. The hospitality and the pride of it's inhabitants have been well known since early antiquity as the ancient historians Plinius, Stravon, Thoucidides, Homer and others have pointed out in their works. Our region has always been a favourite place of visit for many famous foreigners, among them scholars such as Lord Byron, W. Leake and Evliya Celebi. The municipality of Himara numbers 11037 inhabitants, a solid people with more than 85% Greek speaking as their mother tongue. Our municipality is mainly rural; as the area lack's urban planning, selecting the most suitable locations with regard to house building in older times, was solely based on folk tradition. A visitor arriving in Himara never feels like a stranger, as the locals greet him/her as they would an old acquaintance. At the local restaurants and taverns one can savour the traditional local dishes-absolutely scrumptious mind you- as well as international cuisine. The spotless beaches and the radiant sun from dawn to dusk, are just a couple of inviting features in Himara's natural settings, which our township has to offer in a truly bountiful manner. Pay the picturesque villages a visit, where the popular style of house building one comes across in the coastal area yet lives on and also experience the many traditional holiday fests that take place throughout the entire year. The Byzantine churches and the monasteries, timeless marvels of ecclesiastical architecture will surely live up to your expectations. Dear Visitors I hope you will enjoy pleasant holidays from the point of view of what Himara has to offer, but also from the perspective of what can regarded as one's personal apocalypse. We welcome you and wish you the best time ever, on our beaches and elsewhere within the municipality of Himara and the broader area historically belonging to it. Vasilis Bolanos Mayor of Himara

FEW WORDS ABOUT HIMARA

BORSH

26

The region of Himara, named after the county town of Himara (Heimarra) on the shores of the Ionian Sea, historically commences at the village of Nivitsa to the south and ends at the Logaras mountain ridge to the north. On the one hand lies the deep blue of the Ionian Sea and a continuous series of peninsulas, capes and bays, some of which, like Panormos, are closed and sheltered from the wind, while others provide long and beautiful beaches; and on the other side lies the mass of the Akrokeravnia mountain range, with high peaks that include Tsika, Avgo, and Messimeri. This strip of land between the mountain peaks and the sea is the beautiful and historic land of Himara, with its villages and their old, stonebuilt houses, the Byzantine churches and monasteries, the castles and other monuments, as well as the people of Heimarra, hospitable and proud, who have remained unbowed throughout history. Let's take a look at the villages of Himara. First of all, the county town of Himara, which includes the individual settlements of Kastro (Castle); Old Himara (Palaia Himara) with its monuments and its unique architecture; Spilia (Cave) on the beach which is the modern economic and tourist hub; Potami (the river) with its wonderful beach and its hotel rooms; even Livadi (Meadow) with its wonderful sea; Zamari; Michaili; Stefaneli etc North of Himara the first village we encounter is Vouno, a wonderful place with old stone houses, and a wonderful beach at Gyali. Then there is the small village of Liates (Elias) and close by is the wonderful beach at Zypaea that leads to a magnificent and steep canyon. After Liates, the road takes us to Drymades, a large and particularly beautiful village, with old churches, lovely houses and, crowning the top of the hill, overlooking the village, the Monastery of Panagia (the Mother of Christ), further up in DHRYMADHES the mountain there is an other monastery Stavrou or

Stavridi (the holy cross). The ravine of the river lies between the two slopes on which Drymades are built, and at certain points the river bed forms waterfalls. The beach at Drymades is called Gialiskari and is perhaps the most beautiful stretch of sand in the region. After Drymades, to the north we come to the final village, Palassa, the ancient town of Palaeste; then the road winds up the Akrokeravnia Mountains along a breathtaking cliff edge, overlooked by Tsika, the highest peak. Along the mountain ridge, where the road starts to wind down towards Avlona lies Logaras, and here there are a number of taverns in this woody region. North of Himara there are two mountain villages that cannot be reached on the sea route. In order to get acquainted with these villages, we have to take other roads that scrabble up the Akrokeravnia Mountains. Pyliouri is at the highest altitude, built like an eagle's nest, with magnificent views over the Ionian Sea. It lies above the clouds and above the circling eagles that are common to the area. Its name comes from being the Pyli or Gateway to the mountains; and its inhabitants have a long history of being mountain warriors who guarded the mountain pass into Himara. The second village is Koudessi, located at a lower altitude on the slopes of the Akrokeravnia on an inland valley that heads southward. We return to Himara and head south: after the beach at Lamana we come across the closed bay of Panormos. In the centre of the bay is a peninsula on which is Panormos Castle, which is still in excellent condition, along with the little chapel of Agios Nikolaos. We continue on and soon come across the village of Kiparo. High on the hill Old Kiparo perches precariously, a veritable museum of local architecture with wonderful old houses and churches. New Kiparo next to the sea offers a wonderful beach. This is the end of the Municipality of Himara: the remaining villages we will come across historically

belonged to the county of Himara but now belong to the Prefecture of Agioi Saranta, but we will include them on our tour, wanting to show you all the historical region of Himara. We continue, therefore, for another four kilometres, before we come to Borsi, which in antiquity was known as Maeandreia, and during Byzantine years was Sopoto. The castle at Sopoto is located a little to the north of the present-day village, on top of a hill. This village has wonderful running waters, a lovely beach and a number of taverns. It is also the only village in the area with Muslim inhabitants. The inhabitants of all the other villages are

over-whel-mingly Greek Orthodox. Borsi is the starting point of a barely passable road that leads to the so-called Liapouria, behind the Akrokeravnia Mountains: up to the seventeenth century the villages of this region also belonged to Himara. We continue to the north, and after Borsi we come to two villages built in a green region with lovely beaches, Pikerni (its beach called Bouneci) and Loukovo; then the road proceeds inland and we come to Agios Vassilis, a village rich with traditional architecture. Near this village lie a set of ancient walls, which certain archaeologists believe belong to the ancient city of Chaonia Pheonike. Finally, we reach Nivitsa, the final village on our trek, and its beach Kakomaea.

History
Chimaera, the ancient city from which Himara evolved, was one of the most important cities of Chaonia, one of the states of Ancient Epirus that commenced south of Avlona and continued to the south up to the river Kalamas. Other cities that were part of Ancient Chaonia were Orikon, Paleaste, Maeandreia, Phoenike, Vouthroto and others. The origin of the name Chimaera lies in the mythical beast Chimera, slain by Bellerophon; later the name evolved to Chimara; in the latter Byzantine years the spelling was wrongly changed to Heimarra, as the etymology of the name was wrongly imputed to derive from Heimarros (small torrential river): thus both spellings HIMARA and HEIMARRA should be considered correct. The castle at Palaia (Old) Himara is the site of continual human habitation for over three thousand years, and this means that monuments and architectural elements coexist side by side from all the periods covered by that span. Points of the lower and oldest level of the walls contain exceptional and carefully squared off megaliths that date back to the second millennium B.C. The now deserted bishop's mansion was built on the ruins of BUTRINT - VUTHROTO a temple dedicated to the god Apollo. An inscription found here in Ancient Greek proclaims that ÖÏÉÂÏÓ ÁÐÏËËÙÍ ×ÉÌÁÉÑÁÍ ÅÐÏËÉÓÅÍ, in other words Apollo Phoebus founded the city of Chimaera. According to Thucydides, the Chaones were a people without kings, ruled by two lords who were elected every year and who were descended from the ancient royal bloodlines, whose privileges had been circumscribed. In the seventh century BC during the Messenian War, the Spartans came to Himara, an event that marked the beginning of a relationship and a closeness between these two regions: a relationship that can be observe many times through the course of history, creating a tradition of joint ancestry and many other common characteristics. Moreover the people of both regions have a common distant Doric ancestry and many elements of the Ancient Doric forms are preserved in the local dialect of Himara SPILIA - HIMARA to this day.

In the fifth century BC Chaonia took part in the Peloponnesian war on the side of the Spartans, as did all of Epirus with the exception of Amvracia. The region set off on military expedition under its lords Photios and Nicanor against the Acarnanians. The expedition was a failure and this marked the beginning of the decline BUTRINT - VUTHROTO of Chaonia and the rise of the Molossias the dominant power in the region.Later the Molossian King Neoptolemos would create the confederation of Epirotes, where one of the three generals had to be a Chaon. The Romans landed their forces and invaded Epirus. They took terrible vengeance for the victories of King Pyrrus, destroying most Epirote cities and selling many Epirotes as slaves. Later Epirus would also bear the brunt of destruction from the barbarian raids of the Goths, the Huns, the Ostrogoths and Slavs. During the Byzantine era, Justinian renovated and fortified the castle of Himara, making it the seat of a bishopric; however the raids and destruction would continue as the area suffered the depredations of the Saracens, Bulgarians, Crusaders, Serbs, Albanians and Turks. In 1403 Charles, King of Naples, landed on the beach of Himara and pushed the Albanian-speaking people to the north. Some years later the Himariotes, led by the local lord Georgios Stressios, a personal friend of Georgios Kastriotis, attempted to stop the invasion of Epirus by the Ottoman Turks. After the fall of Krugia, Himara remained the only free region in all of Epirus, and was self-governed under the protection of the Venetian Republic. In 1473 the people of Himara, under Vlassis campaigned against the Turks and with Venetian assistance took the fort of Sopoto (now Borsi) and reached from Avlona (Valona) to Sagiada, but were betrayed by the Venetians, who came to terms with the Turks and signed a peace treaty. In 1481 the people of Himara rebelled against Turkish rule. Led by Korkodilos Kladas and his son Skenderbey Ioannis Kastriotis, and with assistance from the King of Naples, they liberated the city. With Ioannis Kastriotis as administrator the city managed to impose suzerainty tax on the Turkish commandant of Valona. Himaran

independence would last ten years, after which the city would fall to the army of Sultan Bayezid. The forced conversion to Islam of the inland villages commenced. One of those converted to Islam, from the village of Palassa would reach the rank of Pasha in Valona under the name Liaz Pasha. The attempt to impose Islam became more general, but the Himariotes resisted desperately, finally achieving a peace treaty that recognised Turkish sovereignty but maintained exceptional privileges. Thirty-three Greek villages of Himara created the Autonomous Keravnian Commonwealth, that was self-governed, free from taxation or conscription, with a local justice system, and the right to bear arms throughout Epirus, rights that Himara held for centuries. Despite the privileges and the essential autonomy obtained by Himara, throughout the Ottoman years the town continued to struggle against the Turks: there was not a single revolt, war or revolution in which Himara refused to take part. During the seventeen seventies, Cosmas Aetolos came to Himara, recommending that its inhabitants build schools rather than so many churches. At the time Himara had a great many churches, one for every saint. The people of Himara heeded his counsel and built a school that would become renowned as the Akrokeravnian School of Himara. Near the school they also built a large and impressive church to the Agioi Pantes (All Saints), seeking to venerate all the saints together. During that period Greek schools were established in the villages of Vouno, Drymades, Kiparo, Pikerni, Agios Vasileios and Lykouressi. Rich philanthropists from Himara provided money to benefit the region and to maintain the schools. Then came the years when Ali Pasha ruled in Ioannina. Ali Pasha tried with all the means at his disposal to conquer Himara, drawing a noose ever tighter around the region, taking and destroying the villages of Himara, exiling their inhabitants to Salaora, near Arta, building the castle at Panormos, on the ruins of an older castle and a monastery to control the Himariotes. In 1821, when the Greek War of Independence broke out, Himariotes were among the first to rally to the flag of rebellion

throughout the land. Athanassios Himariotes was with Ypsilantis in Moldavia, Spyros Spyromilios was at Valtos, at Messolonghi, at Phaleron, other famous fighters also made their names, including Gkiokas, Dimitriou, Harissis, Nestos, Zahos, Dimas, Goretsis, Doukas. On the 5 November 1912 Major Spyros Spyromilios from Himara in charge of a force of Himaran volunteers and Cretan gendarmes made a landing liberating Himara. Over the following days he would liberate the entire county. On 9 February 1914 the people of Himara reacted against the plans of the Great Powers to include the town within the boundaries of the Albanian state, up to 1921 Himara was successively autonomous, under Greek Administration, Italian military occupation and once more autonomous. During the 1940-1941 war between Greece and Italy, important battles took place in the region around Himara. On December 22, 1940 the Greek army entered Himara and the citizens welcomed them with enthusiastic celebrations. In 1945 the people of Himara refused to participate in the plebiscite that would legalise the regime of Enver Hoxha. Many locals were arrested. The man behind the movement, Andreas Dimas was buried alive. The regime went on to shut down the Greek school, the Akrokeravnia School and remove from Himariotes all minority rights.

Sights Monuments
THE CASTLE OF QEPARO HIMARA The old town of Himara, the Castle is in and of itself an important monument requiring protection so that it doesn't suffer irreversible damage. It has signs of constant habitation for over 3,500 years. There are important sights at the Castle. PANAGIA KASOPITRA A Byzantine church with an icon of Panagia - the Mother of Christ - that is believed to be miraculous. In periods of drought the people of Himara would parade the icon and sing hymns and strong rain would follow shortly.

St. COSMAS

THE CHURCH OF THE EPISCOPE A Byzantine church in front of the now ruined building of the Bishop's residence. The church door bears a marble relief of the Byzantine two-headed eagle. The bishop's residence was built over the foundations of an ancient building considered to have been the temple of Apollo. SPYROMILIOS RESIDENCE The old mansion house of the Spyromilios family that played such a major role in the history of Himara. Spyros Spyromilios liberated Himara in 1912 and was its leader for a certain period. AGIOI PANTES (ALL SAINTS) Church built around 1775 at the entrance of the Castle. Cosmas Aetolos preached here and the church, now renovated, is once more the cathedral of Himara. THE AKROKERAVNIOS SCHOOL The Greek school of Himara, next to the church of Agioi Pantes: the first building was erected around 1775 and today the school has been fully renovated and DHRYMADHES is once more fully operational. MONASTERY ATHALIOTISSAS On the mountain slopes above Himara there is the old monastery to Panagia Athaliotissa. Access is only on foot. MONASTERY AGIOU THEODOROU Between the villages Liates and Drymades is this monastery dedicated to Saint Theodore. MONASTERY PANAGIAS DRYMADON This monastery is a pure white building; located on the peak over the village of Drymades has distinctive architecture. GRAMMATA North of Palassa, on the point of the same name, and along the small bay nearby, various epigraphs are carved out in Greek writing, letters and symbols. No reason is known or documented for the existence of these inscriptions. Perhaps they are messages carved out by sailors before they sailed across the Strait of GRAMMATA Otranto to Italy. Access to Grammata is only possible by sea. PANORMOS CASTLE (and PALERMO) South of Himara on a small peninsula is a closed and safe bay of the same name lies Panormos Castle, built by Ali Pasha of GRAMMATA Ioannina at the dawn of the nineteenth century and still in excellent condition. The castle was built on the site of a preexisting monastery described by the British traveller Leake during that period, and of an older castle. Along the connection to the mainland lies the church of Agios Nikolaos which is

connected with various stories and legends to the building of the castle. PALAIO KIPARO (or ANO KIPARO - OLD OR UPPER KIPARO) The entire village is picturesque, with its traditional architecture, the stone cobbled streets, the old churches composing an overall magical image. Of particular interest are the erection inscriptions on various houses. The family of George Tenet, former head of the CIA came from this village originally. MONASTERY AGIOU DIMITRIOU At Kato Kiparo (Lower Kiparo) there is a white, renovated monastery dedicated to Saint Demetrius with a church of the same name. SOPOTO CASTLE Near the village of Borsi along the mountain line lie the ruins of the Byzantine castle of Sopoto. The castle is hard to reach and the only access is on foot. SPILIA TON PIRATON (THE PIRATE'S CAVE) North of Himara on the beach there is a large cave that can only be accessed by sea. The place is amazing and the beach ideal for a quiet swim. According to legend, the cave once provided a haven for pirates.

Beaches
Himara is known for its wonderful beaches, most of which are pebble beaches, although some have sand. Spilia, the central beach of Himara attracts a lot of visitors in the summer. Further on there is Prinos, Potami, Filikouri; to the south lie Lamana, Kiparo, Borsi, the beaches at Pikerni (Bouneci) and Loukovo and Kakomaea at Nivitsa (with a very perilous road). Beneath the Castle of Himara is the Livadi and then to the north lies Giali, Foussa, Zissos, Zypaea, Karkaniki, Gialiskari at Drymades, Palassa and Dralaios. At various points on the beaches of Himarra the water is cold because of the underground springs that exist. A few dozen metres away from these points, however, the water temperature rises once more to normal levels. During the summer months many small boats offer rides to the beaches near Spilia.

Mountaineering Hiking Mountain Climbing
The Akrokeravnia Mountains of Himara offer many opportunities for mountain climbing and hiking. The peaks of Tsika, Avgo, Messimeri and many more are intimidating challenges to any mountain climber. There are also trails that are ideal for beginners while others are suitable only for very experienced climbers.
