Creation of a Website for the Cultural – Environmental Route of Central Greece
YEAR
2018

As a member of the Diazoma Association and continuing supporter of its work for the promotion and protection of monuments, the Foundation contributed to the implementation of the Programme of the Cultural – Environmental Route in Central Greece: “The Paths of History – Routes of Nature and Culture”. The Programme is carried out by the Region of Central Greece in collaboration with the Diazoma Association and its primary goal is the formation of a singular and comprehensive product of cultural tourism through which the sights of the Region will be promoted.

The monuments and sights of the Region of Central Greece, with the exception of the archaeological site of Delphi, remain unknown to the majority of the people visiting our country. Another key purpose of the Route is to attract potential tourists and visitors and especially tourists of special interest to benefit the accommodation, food and leisure businesses established in the area as well as the producers of agri-food products, crafts and other industries and the producers of modern cultural products.

The following main nodes identifying the Cultural and Environmental Route of Central Greece were selected:

 

  1. Chalkida – Eretria (Evia),
  2. Delphi (Parnassos),
  3. Karpenissi (Evrytania),
  4. Thermopylae (Kamena Vourla – Lamia – Lamia Castle),
  5. Thebes,
  6. Orchomenos,
  7. Skyros.

 

  • In the Region of Central Greece, 1,051 declared archaeological sites and monuments have been recorded, of which 2, the archaeological site of Delphi and the Monastery of Hosios Loukas, are listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
  • Altogether in Central Greece, 19 museums and collections of the Ministry of Culture and more than 21 museums of other institutions are in operation.
