The Bridge of Plaka

g_gefyr

The Bridge of Plaka is a symbolic location deeply rooted in the area’s collective memory due to a sequence of historical events. Here, on July 27-28 1821 Markos Botsaris, Mitros and Giannakis Koutelidas, Andreas Karaiskos and other fighters defeated the Ottoman forces of Ali Topal Pasha. On the 3rd of February 1878, K. Kottikas attacked the Ottoman troops that had invaded Plaka forcing its defense to flee. Among the area’s recent historical events the bridge is also associated with the civil war and specifically with the signing of the peace treaty on the cessation of battle between the opposing forces of The Greek People’s Liberation Army and The National Republican Greek League.

The Bridge of Plaka has an intriguing story to tell. The residents had attempted to build a bridge over the Arachthos river specifically where the Bridge of Plaka is located today and had begun the construction process during the Ottoman occupation. The first attempt was erected in the area where the iron bridge, known as Paliodiofyria, exists today. In 1860 the strong rapids of Arachthos had dragged with the bridge with them and so the residents decided to rebuild it. They requested workmen from the neighboring villages of Pramanta, Raftanaion and Skloupo as well as a specific craftsman known as Giorgi from Konitsa who eventually took over the project after the intervention of Ioannis Loulis from Kotortsi who funded the project with 90,000 piasters. The construction of the new bridge was completed in the summer of 1863. Unfortunately the builders were quick to remove the wooden molds and due to this oversight prior to mounting the mortar the bridge collapsed. Nonetheless, the people of Tzoumerka didn’t give up. They assigned the bridge’s re- construction to another technician called Costas Bekas from the Pramanta settlement. Construction of the new bridge began in early July 1866 and lasted until the end of September of the same year. The project was funded by the communities of Pramanta and Melissourgoi while the required timber was donated by the Agnanta community.

But with the bridge’s establishment Greece’s borders were consequently defined by the Arachtos River’s and transits to bordering areas and the use of the bridge became problematic and almost impossible. The Turks sealed the borders and the mobility of people, animals as well as the transport of food and materials essentially stopped. This eloquently captured the frustration and bitterness of the region’s people.

Their complaints went something like this:

Damn you committee, damn you Koumoundouros
The evil you did in Arta and the evil you did in Tzoumerka
You set a border by the river of Arta
Arta is shut, Tzoumerka is shut
Where will I find work
The plains and good pastures are now in Turkey
Life will be lost in these wild pasture lands

The bridge of Plaka features in the collective memory of local residents as well as on the feast day of the Virgin Mary of Plaka also known as the Virgin Mary of Mouchoustiotisa. The festival was an important event in the lives of local residents and particularly for tailors. The celebration took place on the 8th of September and had always been known as Χτωήμερο (Chtoimero) because it lasted for eight days. Pilgrims attended this festival who’d come from neighboring settlements (e.g. Ktistades, Agnanta , Sgara , Graikiko, Koukoulia, Monolithi and Platanousa). As Papadimitriou puts it “Up until 1912, Plaka, the bridge and the Monastery were the region’s focal points. So the celebrations and festival lasted for eight days. Big and small merchants sold bronze items, traditional footwear known as τσαρούχια (tsarouchia), traditional garments for men known as φουστανέλες (foustaneles), wool, bonnets, fabrics and other goods. In the same area, there was a spot called Poliana. Once the region of Epirus gained independence the bazaar gradually faded and the celebration in Mouchousti was limited to two days and eventually, in 1950, to a one day festival.”
