Hello John -Where are you from? From Patras, I have a channel VES VLOG Say it again - The problem with Giannis is this... Giannis has been described as the number one "barker" of the country (attracts customers), but he confuses tourists with Greeks and he yells at everyone and I tell him one day... If you are confusing foreigners with Greeks since you have been in this profession for 35 years, you better get a lick and go to the mountains to be a shepherd You are right Good evening Very nice cafes bars here it also has a second floor this was "Demokratias" square Another good bar here The Museum of Solomos and Kalvos located in the square houses personal belongings of some of the most famous Zakynthians such as Dionysios Solomos, Alexandros Romas and others as well as objects from the Byzantine era. Demokritia Square is finished and I am in "Agiou Markos" Square Agios Markos Square takes its name from the church of the same name which was founded in 1518 and stands out for being the only Catholic church in Zakynthos.

William began to compose songs after he returned from the crusades..." Village salad, Tsipouro, Water - 20.00 euros The troubadours inaugurated and fervently supported the worship not of a goddess with a body and face but of an idea, Noble Love... The troubadour was usually aristocrat but he may have been a very gentle and sensitive poor artist, who composed songs dedicated to a Beautiful Lady. Women were also the central motif of the troubadours Noble Love... The troubadour was usually an aristocrat but he may have been a very gentle and sensitive poor artist, who composed songs dedicated to a Beautiful Lady.
His primary goal was not the conquest of the Lady but rather the moral refinement which his love for her inspired in him. To become worthy, the aspirant poet was forced to cultivate humility, temperance, patience, loyalty, and all the noble qualities she possessed . yes, love could transform even the most uncultured of men. The troubadours believed that courtly love was the source of social and moral refinement, that chivalrous deeds and noble actions flowed from love. Soon, much of Europe adopted the troubadour art. Spain and Portugal accepted the themes of their songs. Northern France had the trouvers; Germany, the Minnesigers; Italy, the trovatori.
The main theme of the troubadours, courtly love, combined with the ideal of chivalry, created a genre of literature known as romance.
