History of Ormos Grammata

The Grammata bay is full of history. Its history as a place for stone excavations is evident in chisel features. Due to its strategic location, it served and still serves as a place for ships to take refuge in harsh weather. The shelter from the rocks was a safe place on a dangerous coast filled with mountains and islets. In difficult weather conditions, the welcome arms of this bay provided shelter for weary sailors. Their inscriptions on the rocks are a testament to this fact.

Over 2000 years ago, prayers were inscribed on the rocks of the Grammata beach. The inscriptions are all in the Greek language. They speak of Dioskurve, Beaver, and Poluksit, who are protectors of seafarers and their ships. The inscriptions also refer to Jesus Christ.
