Impressive mountain and seaside paths in the shadow of Gerania !!!
For those who prefer the sea breeze - hiking, we recommend the northern coasts of Korinthiakos, From the settlements of Panorama, Sterna and Scausia we will reach the rocky shore of Sterna (Saponthi), the double beach of Lakka Zeza and the beautiful beach of Mylopotis, in pines and rocks.
The path to the beautiful Lake Vouliagmenis is wonderful - on this side the Gerania Mountains are verdant and the landscape becomes more and more picturesque. The lake has also been declared an area of special natural beauty. From here we will visit the stunning Heraion in Cape Melangavi, where one of the oldest stone beacons of the Corinthian is located. In Heraion you will be enchanted by the cove with the archaeological site where the ruins of the sanctuary of Hera Akraia-Limenas (6th century BC) are preserved. we descend the path to Heraion and we have a plate in front of us the Corinthian Gulf. East of the lake begins a lace of beautiful sandy beaches, all remote and green. We will swim in Sterna, Mylopoi and Stravas.

In 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and, again, in 2016, history was made . . . and lived! The Nemean Games were reborn.
On June 26-28, 2020, they will happen again. Come and become a part of History.
The ancient Greeks celebrated festivals at Nemea that were part of the cycle of games at Delphi, Isthmia, and (best known today) Olympia. At each one of these four sites in rotation, for a brief period each year, wars and hostilities were suspended by a sacred truce, and all Greeks — Spartans and Athenians, Corinthians and Argives, Macedonians, and Cretans — gathered in recognition of their common humanity. This impulse toward peace — albeit limited to a few days each year — was the first in the history of mankind on an organized, regular, and international scale. Thus, the ancient festivals at Nemea, Olympia, Delphi, and Isthmia are the direct ancestors of today's Olympic games as well as of the United Nations.
The Society for the Revival of the Nemean Games (which now has more than 1000 members from around the world) was founded in the belief that there is today scope and perhaps even the need for the average person — regardless of ethnicity, language, religion, gender, age, or athletic ability — to participate in an international athletic festival. And so it happened in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. More than 4800 people from 120 different countries, ranging in age from 6 to 96, have added their footprints to those of ages long gone.
No records were kept and no medals were awarded. Families with picnics on the slopes of the stadium were as much a part of the festival as the runners. Races were organized by gender and age, and were interspersed with music and dances. All the participants ran barefoot and in ancient tunics which they put on in the ancient locker room. And they entered the stadium through the same tunnel where athletes passed in the 4th century B.C. They started from the same stone line and with the same starting mechanism, and the winners received the same initial tokens of victory — a ribbon tied around the head and a palm branch. At the end of the day the victors received the same crown of wild celery that was the ephemeral symbol of the victory at the ancient Nemean Games. But all the participants were rewarded with feet sore from contact with the same earth where ancient feet ran more than 2,300 years ago — and by the knowledge that they had been in direct physical contact with an ancient idea, an ancient spirit, that still lives at the earth of Nemea.
The Seventh Nemead will take place on June 27, 2020, and all who would share in that idea and that spirit are invited to participate.
If you would like to help that idea live by becoming a member of the Society for the Revival of the Nemean Games, please send the attached application form with membership dues in the form of a cheque or money order for €15. (or the equivalent).
