Evia - the undiscovered Island

Evia is the second largest island in Greece, after Crete. It is over 180 km in length and covers and area of 4.167 sq.km and has a population of 208.400 inhabitants. On the map, Evia is so close to the mainland that it barely resembles an island. Tradition has it that a blow from Poseidon's trident separated Evia from mainland Greece.

Our region is also rich in historical events, ancient and contemporary ones. In 480 B.C. we had the famous naval battle of Artemisio, and in 1928 fishermen found one of the biggest masterpieces of antiquity : the bronzen statue of Poseidon.
