Anogeia Village


Anogeia, that have been destroyed three times by conquerors, is, principally, a permanent place of resistance.

Hospitable, strict and fair the Anogeians have built a society full of surprises: You think men are in charge but the domination of women is a common secret.  Tough men, who you thing they never cry, bent sobbing on women’s lamentations. Always speak seriously, with humor. They sing, dance or write “mantinades” almost daily. On the squares you can see busts of heroes together with statues of lyra players. They walk strange at good streets, perhaps because they have learned to run on irregular stones. They participate in common situations and completely transform the joy or the grief of every villager in their personal matter.

They speak a language that has saved the particular articulation of the palatal L that involves the R.

Socrates, Epaminondas, Diogenes, Demaratus, Iphigenia, Electra, Ismene, Cleisthenes, Lamachos, Agesilaus, Minos, Ariadne, and many other ancient names can someone find even today in Anogeia.

Anogeia are Anogeians.
