ANCIENT KORONEIA

The babbling of the running water and the mirrored beauty of a glorious natural landscape tells the story of a city that participated in the Trojan War and was founded by the Thessalians, taking its name from the adopted son of Athamas, Coronus. The Pamboeotia, the famous festival in honour of Athena Itonia during which all acts of hostility ceased, brought countless visitors to Koroneia, on a pilgrimage to Hermes Epimelius, the Anemoi (Winds), Laphystian Zeus, Hera, and Heracles, and to keep alive the memory over the centuries of Phrixus and Helle, who were saved from sacrifice by flying off on a golden ram.
