Information about the Architecture in Sterea, in Greece but also information about architecture in many locations of the region: The whole region of Sterea is blessed with natural beauty and remains strongly connected to mythical figures since it is inhabited from antiquity. The impressive canyons, the rivers, the exotic beaches and the green forests create the ideal scenery for the nature lovers.
A typical sample of Sterea architecture in Sterea can be seen in Arachova, a beautiful town that clings to Mountain Parnassus, east of Delphi. Its peaceful atmosphere and idyllic landscape make it an ideal getaway for the Athenians. Most importantly, it is a town with a strong local tradition with the hand-loomed wool flokates that can be found in numerous shops and the unique architecture that is revealed in the upper town, in the picturesque neighbourhoods where you can enjoy long walks though the narrow streets.

The area of Sterea is closely associated to archaeological sites of major interest like Delphi, one of the most historical places to visit in Greece. Delphi displays the epitome of ancient Greek architecture with a plethora of architectural marvels that survive to this day.

Some wonderful buildings are found at the centre rising over the marble squares. One of the most famous mansions belonged to the renowned poet Lord Byron.

Mykonos august 2017, Elia beach from Agrari
Mykonos august 2017, Agrari and Elia are located near each other, forming a huge sandy beach, 10 kilometres from the island's capital. Agrari Beach is less popular than its neighbor Elia and much calmer. They both can be reached by local bus and by taxi-boat. As with many of the beaches you approach from on high and then down a long, thin, steep road. There is a smallish cafeteria and two sets of beach loungers with shades. There are many nudists on this beach. From this beach you can walk over the rocks to the left to visit Elia beach.
