Iliahtida Project

One man spent his early years in one place which then left, with his family, for livelihood purposes.

After many years slowly he began to return. But what he saw was a place almost ruined by the abandonment of the people, the rubbish carried along the sea and the plundering of people and animals in what was left of the life and labors of a bygone era. In the mind of the man who returned it seems clearly a thought. How can I help this beautiful place that is my home to be clean?

Hi! My name is Manolis and my origins are from a place called Tristomo in Karpathos island, Greece. Here at Tristomo I lived for the first three years of my life. My family then moved into the capital of Karpathos, Pigadia for financial reasons. For the last 15 years I have started slowly to come back at Tristomo, the place I was born, thus my home. Nearly 5 years ago I started implementing a plan to restore Iliahtida a traditional Green House. This project first of all represents my true presence at Tristomo and the creation of a daily life, based on activities such as, cultivation, fishing, beekeeping etc. Then I want to do everything I can to help Tristomo, a place that participates on the Natura 2000 network in the heart of the third Sea Park of Greece. This is a dream that I hope to complete with much effort, work and the help of people who will come to Tristomo and Iliahtida to live with me real experiences in the area, and also help protect this unique site. Thank you.
