Kremasti bridge & the Roman aqueduct

North of the salt marsh of Kalloni Salt Pans lies a village called Agia Paraskevi. In the village there is an interesting olive oil museum. It is housed in an old factory which was renovated in 2006. Open every day except Tuesdays. Just north of Agia Paraskevi there is an old stone bridge called Kremasti bridge. The bridge is 8.5 metres high and is considered to be one of the best preserved medieval stone bridges in Greece.

North of Mytilini lies a village called Moria. Outside the village is a Roman aqueduct built at the beginning of our era. The aqueduct is a masterpiece of construction and it is very impressive.

The narrow streets of Moria leading to the Roman aqueduct.

 

It provided Mytilini with water, which is located 26 kilometres away! It is almost incomprehensible that they could create such a construction for so many years ago. Wondering if it would be possible to build one today?

The Roman aqueduct. You see how big it is compared to Camilla standing to the left.

 

The aqueduct is located before Moria, but you have to enter the village to get there. The streets of Moria is narrow so it's a little tricky to drive. The aqueduct is signposted, ask for the way if you do not see them.
