The balconies of Salamina

It is difficult to walk the streets of Salamina without constantly looking upward where flower-filled balconies protrude from adobe houses with large courtyards and fountains in the middle. The decorations on the walls are a legacy of the cabinetmaker and carver Tangarife Elisha, who in the mid-nineteenth century promoted a woodworking school that gave its seal to the town.
