The travelling reader encounters many different seasonal landscapes. He sees the face of Autumn as he walks through the virgin forest of Phraktos, the lofty mountains of Olympus, snowcapped like Vasilitsa in Grevena or brilliant green like Grammos. He will also come across the Prespa lakes and the deep waters of the Aliakmonas river. Elsewhere he might find a golden beach gently caressed by the sea. He will confront history at the archaeological sites of Vergina, Pella, Philippoi and Dion.
Lovingly-built houses at Arnaia and Eleftheroupolis. The consummate skill of the artist, expressed in the design on a wall at Siatista. Elaborate Byzantine churches. Candelabra embroider the half-light enveloping the icons. Located in the middle of the sea is the "Garden of the Virgin", where the imposing domes of Mount Athos are surrounded by blessed, carefully tended trees in bloom. The travelling reader will also celebrate the grape harvest at Naoussa and during carnival time he will come face to face with Jannisseries and Boules. In the fabled, hospitable land of Macedonia, history is to be found everywhere -between the stones, in the water, on the fertile land and in the sky.
