So...from the springs of Ancient Lerna (now Myloi) to the river delta. Where ''Lerna Hydra'' was living...a huge snake with nine heads. This snake was causing huge damage to the area. Only Hercules (the second legendary Labour of the 12) was able to kill it. What was going on, in the position of each head cutting by Hercules, two more were falling out. So he thought that when he was cutting each head to burn immediatly it with fire and came out no more. That's how the legend stayed! Then from this mythological river of Ancient Lerna we will walk...to visti the older harbor with the lighthouse ...a huge trading hub from the 1889, to Argolikos, the Aegean and the Mediterranean! Then moving towards it the most famous Greek railway Station in the Peloponnese and in Greece... the old Mill Station since 1882...with trains and engines machines, charcoal pumping stations...as ever!
