This attraction has to be accessed via a rough path and one has to exercise considerable imagination to see Aristotle teaching the young Alexander. The caves are atmospheric and dry. The cultural centre across the road was closing as we arrived but the curator was...More

It's a quaint spot, down by the river with abundant vegetation and just the outlines of foundations of buildings on several terraces. It is close to ancient Mieza and fits the description of the "school" attended by Alexander and his peers, where Aristotle taught. However,...More

Yet another historic site that requires some imagination to appreciate. Quiet and cool around the spring of the nymphs.

Most influential according to several lists of the great. This place is out of the way, overgrown with exuberant volunteer vegetation, dripping with sweet water, has fences which only indicate the suggested path and do not bear leaning upon or sitting upon. Once a small...More
