The Village


Thronos is a small picturesque village that has 32 inhabitants.

In the past, it was full of young people as well as kids who used to play together in their houses or in the village’s roads.

“I close my eyes and remember playing with my friends until late at night in the village’s square. I can also remember my grandmother taking care of the animals and cooking delicious food every day. I remember my grandfather buying me sweet jelly from the village’s coffee shop. I remember laughters, songs in the square and the unique scent of jasmine, basil and oregano.”
