Description

Details

Thessaly, in Northern Greece, is a land rich in mythological significance. Achilles and Jason were born in Thessaly, Centaurs called it home, and its people are said to be descended from the great warrior Heracles. Nestled in the northlands of Thessaly, Phalanna was home to the Perrhaebi, fearsome warriors who fought in two of the most storied battles of antiquity: the Battle of Thermopylae and the Trojan War. Some consider this forgotten capital the Lost City of Ancient Greece.
