Eupalinos Tunnel Attraction

This is an engineering marvel of Ancient Greece, one of the most impressive constructions of the archaic era in the territory of Greece, that was realized by the architect Eupalinos, after who it was named. It is a one kilometer long tunnel that passes through the Spiliani hill connecting the north with the south side, which was operational for over one thousand years. The most impressive thing about it is that its construction began simultaneously at both sides and the two tunnels met half through the way thanks to calculations of great precision. It is the second tunnel of its kind on the whole world, but it is the first one to depend on mathematical calculations.
