From Blue Guide Greece the Aegean Islands
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Samothrace, little more than the massif of Mt Sáos with a ledge of habitable land attached, has an epic solitude and grandeur. Its gorges and peaks, trees, waters, winds and shores possess a primeval simplicity. Its forests are evoked by Homer; its winds propelled and tormented Odysseus; the view from the summit of Mt Sáos is the view Poseidon had of the Battle of Troy. It is no surprise that a very ancient cult of mysterious and un-nameable ‘Great Gods’ evolved here.
This is a chapter from Blue Guide Greece the Aegean Islands: what to see, where to stay and eat, history, archaeology, art, culture, leisure. With superb, award-winning maps. Written and edited by a team of three experts: historian, art historian and archaeologist, two of whom lead cultural tours in Greece. "Blue Guides still hold the cultural high ground" Sunday Times.
