50 minus two stories about the Peloponnese inspired by the Greek War of  Independence

A free app for locals, travelers and history buffs available below 

​The Greek War of Independence is inextricably linked to the land of the Peloponnese.

That is not surprising if we look back at all the events that took place on its mountains, cities, and shores. How many of those numerous events are we actually familiar with? How many of their aspects have we been taught? 

Those are only two of the questions at the root of DIADROMES-1821, a new, free application, which aims to point out landmarks in the Peloponnese, bearing a considerable role during the War of Independence.
