Narration workshop for fifth-grade and sixth-grade primary school pupils, with the archaeologist-tour guide Ari Sichlimiris and the art historian Katerina Konstantinou. [in Greek]
The Ekatontapyliani church is over 18 centuries old. The building has survived through the ages alongside the legends people narrate about it. Where is the hundredth gate? What’s the story of the bell tower? Where is the print left by Saint Theoktisti? Who was the pirate Nisyris? What happened to the master builder and his disciple? How did all those stories reach us? Which of all these are true? And which are fairy-tales? What stories do we have to tell about Ekatontapyliani?
Come and let’s make our own fantastic story about the monument!
