Marina Mikrolimano (Pasalimani)

Marina Mikrolimano (Pasalimani)

On edge of Koumoudourou Beach in Piraeus is the ancient port of Mounihias - commonly known as "Mikrolimano" (def. "small harbor"). Fishermen dock their boats here, decorating the tiny coastline while at the same time bringing their fresh hauls to the lovely fish taverns directly in front.

As the "whisper" of our mythology, in ancient times, goddess Artemis protected this port and the temple was where the Nautical Club is today. In 479 B.C., Themistocles shaped the Port of Mounihia, which used to serve the navy and merchant ships, having developed full naval activity in all areas, as in war, but also in the commercial and sea-sports.

During the Byzantine period it was called the "Lantern" (def. "Fanari") presumably from the existence of the strobe lamp at the entrance, and during the Turkish occupation was renamed "Tourkolimano". Later it was also given the name Akti Koumoundourou (after the villa of Koumoundourou located at the point where today the Yacht Club of Greece is found). It finally reverted again to Port Mounichia, until 1967, when Aristides Skylitsi, Mayor of Piraeus, when the area got its current name from the small shape of the port (therefore mikro-limano).
