'' a vrese with no water ''

the water vrese at the back of trifyllianika which is located at the end of the road when the village of trifyllianika comes to a end , follow the track down to the vrese, when in glorious days gone by was the focal point of that village where women washed clothes , people gathered water for their homes , and the land owners around the vrerse attended the fields and crops , some people in trifyllianika still maintain fruit tress in that area but not like of years gone by and the great shame for some reason no water flows out of this great fountain , locals say they have diverted the water flow down to potamo , in my retirement days im going to try to get the water fountain of the village to follow again ...

the old cellar.

in the many old and deserted homes of times gone by, this could be a regular scene in some of these old homes in every village on the island, here in the dark cellars we have old pots and barrells that contained wine and olive oil.

Trifillianika spring.

Βρύσις Tριφυλλιανιυων

From a postcard; photograph by Emmanuel Sophios.

The women have arrived by donkey, and are using spring water to wash their clothes.

The spring obviously ran much more freely a half century ago.

See other entries of the same spring by Jim Gavrilis (with large gathering) and Steve Tryphilis.

Steve Tryphillis:

Located in the village of Trifyllanika near Potamo. The place is called "vrisi" the local spring where in old times people would wash clothes collect water etc. also the locals would hold picnic partys there. At the back of the vrisi the locals would have their small properties and the vrisi would water their gardens. The water is natural spring water. The water is still running slowly. For some years no water was running then some locals cleared the pipe of vines to allow water flow. To find the vrisi you go to the end of Trifyllanika concrete road and wind down a small track about 5 min. There you find the the vrisi in a beautiful & peaceful garden area and you can enjoy a lovely cold drink of water..
