Aetoloakarnania, Messolongi - "Exodus" of the sun !

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The "Exodus of the Guards" (The Sortie) on the night of April 10, 1826, was the last act of the third siege of Messolongi (15 April 1825 - 10 April 1826) by Ibrahim Pasha. It is reproduced by Delacroix in his famous painting "Greece on the Ruins of Messolongi" (La Grèce sur les ruines de Missolonghi - Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux). The siege of the city inspired the National Poet Dionyssios Solomos to write his famous poem "The Free Besieged".

I JUST READ ON THE FORUM :


Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Since 2005, Panoramio has been a community of talented photographers dedicated to helping us build the world's largest geolocated photo collection and allow people to virtually explore the world on Google Maps and Earth. Here’s a glimpse of what’s ahead for the community. Over the past year, we’ve developed a similar community in Views, which lets you publish geo-relevant content (photo spheres and traditional photography) on Google Maps. In the future, we plan to migrate Panoramio into Views, creating one destination where you can publish and peruse imagery from around the globe. Before migrating any imagery, we’ll make sure that Views reaches a level of feature maturity that supports the needs of the community. We're not there yet, but we’re actively working to address the problems we’ve heard from the community. In the meantime, please continue to use Panoramio as you always have, knowing that once Views is ready we will help you migrate your content there. Our hope is to provide a platform that gives photographers and photography-lovers a forum to share their work. Simultaneously, we also want to help our global Google Maps users explore the world and make decisions about where to go, whether it’s majestic landscapes they dream of visiting or a restaurant in their neighborhood. We sincerely thank our loyal Panoramio contributors for sharing the beauty of our world through your lens. We can’t wait to see all the photos you’ll share next!

Thank you, Evan Rapoport Product Manager, Views
