The Garden of Heroes

Reviewed By ELear - Ancona, Italy

The Garden of Heroes commemorates a moment during the Greek War of Independence, when the town was besieged for the third time by Ottoman forces. After a heroic, year-long defence the heavily outnumbered Greeks, with philhellene supporters from other countries, tried to break out and were killed. They had been betrayed. To Greek people, this is the Sacred City of Missolonghi.
Around a wide, low burial mound, where many of the fighters were buried, white marble statues stand, some modern, some older, in memory of particular fighters. The one most non-Greek visitors will be particularly interested in is the one of Lord Byron. To my mind, it is best to visit the garden in the gloaming, ideally with a light drizzle falling. Then, you feel the tall white statues looming up against the dark trees almost as ghostly presences, each with his own ideals and thoughts. An extraordinary and deeply moving experience.
The garden is easy to find. Come off the motorway and follow the signs for Messolonghi. Drive on towards the town until you come to a point where there's a wall in front of you, with trees behind it, and you have to turn left or right. That - the trees - is the Garden of Heroes. The main entrance is on the far side, so turn right and just follow the wall round. Park anywhere.
