Donousa, the island of the Small Eastern Cyclades is a separate proposal for a quiet holiday especially this season. I met Donoussa with an incredible calm, rare Sea, and the serene landscape to win from the start.
The name “Donousa” or Denoussa or Stenoza, or Spinoza. The island’s name remains the same since the ancient times. Virgilius calls it “viridem” because of its abundant vegetation and the green marble. According to the myth it was on Donoussa that Dionysos brought Ariadne from Naxos, so that Theseus would not find her.
Important archaeological sites, museums, monasteries, churches, as preserved settlements, all tiles are an incredible image that unites the past with the present, proving once again how special island is Donousa.
On the island of Donoussa will taste many local delicacies. Some of these are the “patatato” (meat sauce with potatoes), the “kavourmas” (small pieces of pork fried in fat), the “giaprakia” (cabbage). Weddings and christenings offered nougat on lemon leaf, xerotigana and “rakomelo” (raki with honey). Easter try kid in the oven, stuffed with rice.
There are also taverns with fresh fish, several café-bar where all his friends every night become one, and enjoy a drink at the same time with the beautiful landscape. There native rustic oven daily breaks the nose of passersby with its variety of pastries. Donoussa is an island edge style – life but something more interesting, calm enjoyment and absolute relaxation.
