Hundreds of visitors each year come across the entire world to pay homage to relatives, friends, compatriots, lying in Lemnian earth.
Australians mostly, but also travelers from other countries and nationalities, reach for an emotional pilgrimage, at the Allied cemetery of Moudros, on a path of historical memory, one hundred years now, connecting people from both ends of the earth.
Moudros allied cemetery is now a world monument on the road to Roussopouli village where hundreds of dead soldiers of the Gallipoli campaign rest. There are mainly 148 Australians and 76 New Zealanders, but also from other countries, buried in clusters according to their nationality.
The travel trend of grief tourism seems to have arrived at this corner of Lemnos. Descendants of the fallen and history buffs, elated by the events of Gallipoli visit the allied cemetery of Moudros.
It is well worth a visit here to learn and better understand the history of the place and the dramatic events that unfolded in the Dardanelles.
