Archeological findings in Aliki, Greece.
It is said that during the antiquity, it was the kingdom of Aliki which had large population and a big port. During the 7th century B.C., at the eastern coast a sanctum was founded dedicated to the god Apollo. In 1896 a well preserved Kouros was discovered and since then it is exhibited in the museum of Istanbul.On the highest spot, there are the remnants of two palaeo-Christian basilicas of the 5th century that where places that welcomed the worshipers until the pre-Christian years. In the sanctum many sailors had been frequent visitors because they had been travelling to the island in order to transfer marble. The sailors used to engrave on the stepping-stones the names of their beloved ones and theirs, too.#alikibeachthassos #alikibeach #greece #summer #tbsummer #archeology #history
