ANCIENT PHIGALEIA DWELLINGS Ancient Phigaleia is home to mostly elderly people. Their children left long ago for urban areas but they carry on as generations before them - tending their animals, olive trees and vegetable gardens. Most live in traditional stone houses with a few added mod cons; others have lovingly renovated the houses they lived in as children which they, and their family and friends, use as holiday homes. A few have started from scratch creating impressive luxury homes that would not look out of place on the cover of a glossy magazine. Sadly, other buildings have fallen into disrepair.
