In 1300, the total destruction of the ancient capital of the island of Lefkas forces the residents to relocate and live in and around the Fortress, an area with formidable environmental problems, in combination with the numerous and strong earthquakes.
The question raised is how these people, through infinite difficulties, managed not only to survive but also to develop a unique building construction in order to face the most crucial problem: earthquakes. How were they capable, through total destruction, equipped with willpower, stone, wood, primitive construction tradition as well as their ingenuity, to create? The subject of this book is the answer to this complicated question which has triggered the interest of the scientific community, even outside Greece.
