Day Nineteen, Pella, Greece

December 02, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Today...all day it was rainy, and therefore, my driver and I traveled 5 or 6 hours to get to our furtherest northern destination.  On our way we visited Pella.

Pella is an ancient Greek city located in the current Pella regional unit of Central Macedonia in Greece. It was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Macedonia.  It seems that they are not even half way through a decent excavation undertaking.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Pella Site Museum was very nicely laid out and had many pieces of antiquity to display.

As I entered the museum I was greeted with the head of Alexander the Great. He lived from 325 - 300 BC. The head is made of Marble head and was found in Pella Greece.
