Piracy in the Aegean

Myths & truths

In Naoussa, Paros, a re-enactment event called “Koursaroi” (pirates) is held every year on the occasion of the ninth day of the afterfeast of the Dormition of the Mother of God on the 23rd of August. Young men, dressed as pirates, as old-time seafarers, that is – or should we picture them as one-eyed and peg-legged? – step aboard boats and all kinds of vessels, then storm the port of Naoussa and abduct women. Next, the people of Naoussa counterattack and take their women back, saving them and their honour from the much-hated, barbarous pirates!

Migratory birds in Psaralyki of Antiparos

A short rest in a long journey…

Country borders do not stop birds. They fly easily over when they search for the best living conditions for themselves and their young. Some birds stop for a while on Antiparos, to eat and get enough energy for a further journey, either north or south.

Discovering Parikia

Parikia can easily deceive you. The noisy area of the port, the crowds and traffic jam, especially in the summer time, and the dazzling white marble paved square do not prepare you for the atmosphere and the picturesque character of the old town. You have to leave the port behind you and cross the square in order to discover the hidden treasures of Parikia.
