Pavlopetri Island is located off the coast of Laconia in the south of the Peloponnese. Few know about him. But it is one of the most important places in Greek history.

This island is the oldest ancient Greek city that archaeologists have ever found underwater, writes the Greek Reporter.

In translations, the name Pavlopetri means “Paul's stone”. It is connected directly with the Christian apostles and martyrs Saints Peter and Paul. They once spread Christianity through their travels around the world. These events took place in the 1st century AD.

The history of the ancient Greek city begins more than 5000 years ago. It was discovered by Nicholas Flemming in 1967. Until now, it is the oldest of its kind and is simply located in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

A year after the discovery of the city, it was put on the map. In addition, scientists from the University of Cambridge wanted to determine its scale. During the study, Pavlopetri was attributed to the Mycenaean era. But it wasn't. After a thorough study, archaeologists came to the conclusion that the first settlements appeared here in 2800 BC. This was indicated by various artifacts. They mainly belonged to the Bronze Age.

Today this monument is unique. Thanks to nature, she remained inviolable. Therefore, it is extremely valuable for archaeologists. In the future, it will be possible to explore an area of ​​more than 46 thousand square meters.

Pavlopetri is the oldest underwater city in the world. In addition, it is one of the first to have planning. Residential areas, markets, pottery production cells can be traced.

With careful construction, this place can be turned into an extremely valuable tourist attraction.
