Kaminia

It' s here

Passing from the hillside of Kouraka, you meet the village Kaminia. It is said that here there were once furnaces, where people fired earthen pots.

At the square, full of acacias, in the exceptional tavern of Andreas, you will stuff yourself with grilled chops and various snacks. A very beautiful church dominates in the middle of the village. Kaminia constitutes one of the oldest villages of the island and lies very close to the archaeological site of Poliochni.

There, excavations’ findings, made by Italian archaeologists since 1930, show seven successive beds of cities, built one over the other –something that indicates a civilization of 5,000 years old. Once you are there, it’s worth visiting it.

The famous “Stele of Kaminia” was found in the ruins of the church of Saint Alexandros, in the area of Sokastro, and constitutes a Pelasgic-Tyrrhenian inscription, which hasn’t been translated yet. The village is known for its anise of exceptional quality, which is necessary for the preparation of ouzo and red wine, from the variety of kalampaki (black grapes) of Lemnos.
