Photographer's Note

This fine and... green place is the Athanatwn Square (in english=Immortal Heroes Square), a square at Chalkis very near to the old bridge of Evripos, Paralia of Chalkis and customhouse of the city at the harbor.

This square named like that because is hosting several bustes of local war heroes, very important persons from Chalkis and entire Evia island (musicians, politicals, actors etc) and religious leaders.

It's a very pleasant place with several restaurants serving local traditional sea food and very near to the sea.

In this photo it's the bust of Lieutenant Colonel Dimitrios Misiris, who was assistant commissioner of a detachment of greek soldiers at the Pindos's epopoeia of 1940 during the Greek-Italian war and fall in duty!
