Tropea

This is another mountainous town amphitheatrically built on the slopes of the mountain. According to the archeologists, the wider area of Tropea was inhabited in 2200 BC by the Pelasgians. One century later, the people of Viotia moved here. Tropea means trophy and the name came from the trophy that was setted in the city after the battle between Thelpusians ane Elefsinians. Thelpusa was also an ancient city near Vanena, from which there are remainings of the temple of Dimitra, walls, water tank, inscriptions and objects and parts of a Roman mansion. The city was very important during the ancient ages, had many temples dedicated to godess Dimitra and the tem-ple of the son of Asklipios. The city stands today on the remainings of the Medieval city Veritsa (1300 AC) which was builted by Slavian immigrants. Between the villages Galatas and Viziki, there are remainings of the Akova castle, builted by the Franks during the 13th century BC.
