  • [01] Ancient Roman roads in building basements

    ANA-MPA/One usually finds parking and storage spaces in the basements of apartment buildings, but beneath three buildings in the northwestern Greek city of Veria, the basements contain the remains of ancient Roman roads that were uncovered during digging for the foundations, and have been expropriated by the culture ministry.

    The first of the three sites, the "basement" of the Veltsidis building on Mitropoleos street, were open to the public for a week, in the framework of events commemorating the city's liberation from Ottoman rule. Here lies one of the best preserved sections of the Roman road running to ancient Elimeia.

    The other two basements also contain sections of Veria's ancient road network, which more or less coincides with the present-day road system, and the municipal authorities have submitted a study to the culture and tourism ministry seeking funding to keep all three basement sites open to the public year-round.ANA-MPa
