It was great. Everybody has to go there if they want to learn more about the latest Greek history and the bravery of the Greek army in the 2nd World War. It made me to feel proud for being a Greek.

If you love learning about history you must visit the Fort Roupel. In there you can learn a lot of new things about the history of Greece during the World War II.

Whatever your sat nav says turn off the motorway at the Roupel Sign and continue up the steep road until you reach a barrier. We were greeted by a smart soldier who in perfect English asked for one of our passports before letting us climb...More
