The three arched bridge of Mili

Probably the oldest arched bridge in Samos, builded on the Imvrassos ancient river. According the Greek Mythologie the goddess Hera was born near to this river under a Wicker tree.

In 2005 the Greek State and the EC spend some 85.000 Euros to renovate any damages.

So today you can see it in a good shape.

  6. It is a pretty bridge, but sad to see the defacement. I do not understand why people do the things they do. Great photos!

  7. I loved Nirvana, but that does not give anyone right to deface public property.

  8. Too bad about the graffiti. Otherwise the bridge is a national treasure, worth keeping in good condition.

  9. Great bridge which is unfortunately marred by that graffiti.
