1. PREVEZA – the city
The city was founded in the end of the 12th century A.D., after the desertion of Nikopolis. In 1499, the Venetian admiral Bartolomeo Pezaro set fire on the naval yard – a big part of the settlement - conquering the city, which in 1530 was given to the Turks until 29 September 1684, when Venetians conquered it again.
During the war between the Venetians and the Turks (1684-1718) in 1700, the city was destroyed and the 60 families that managed to survive took refuge in Lefkas. According to the Passarovitz treaty (21of July 1718) the city was definitely given to the Venetians and was initially inhabited by the families of eight commanders from Acarnania (Digonis, Gerogiannis, Tsoumanis, Chaidas or Triadafillis, Papadopoulos, Tsavalas and two others whose names remain unknown). Each family built a church, which later became a parish church. On the 29th of September 1538 a sea-battle took place in front of the mouth of the Amvrakikos gulf between the fleet of Hairendin Barbarossa and the United Christian fleet under the command of Andrea Doria. On 21 September 1828, some Greek ships violated the entry Amvrakikos gulf (the time of ¨Mistika¨). In 1797 the French conquered Preveza, but they remained only until the 12th of October 1798, when Ali-Pasha attacked Preveza and the town suffered great destruction. There he built a summer palace, near spas, at the mouth of Amvrakikos, which was destroyed later by the son of Ali-Pashas, Velis, so as not to be given to the Turks of Sultan. Ali-Pashas took on the fortification of the city, by repairing St. Andreas Castle in 1807. This castle was built by the Venetians in 18th century and was the “acropolis” of Preveza being surrounded by a ditch and a bastion from the seashore side (which was demolished in 1920-30). He rebuilt another castle –known as Bouka – since 1495 after having collapsed in 1701. Another important work of fortification of the city was the city up to the fortress of St. Georgios and the bastion of Vrysoula. He also built the fortress of Pantokrator (1807), which controlled along with the castle of Pounta in Aktion the entrance of Amvrakikos. All these fortifying works took place around 1807 and the architect responsible for them was a Greek named Petros, according to an inscription in the fortress of St. Andreas. Apart from the fortresses, places of great interest are also the churches of Preveza, such as: The church of Agios Charalambos, built in 1700 and rebuilt in 1793, in the place of an older church, which was ruined, having excellent icons in the iconostasis and frescoes at the roof (1793, 1804) and a very nice wood-carved and gold- plated iconostasis. Attached to this church lies the Venetian Tower of the City Clock (1752).
It is worth mentioning Nikopolis, which is strictly connected with the history of Preveza. On the 2nd of September 31 B.C. a sea-battle between the fleet of Octavius on one hand and Antonius and Cleopatra on the other took place, the winner of which was Octavius. The consequence of this sea-battle was a result the end of the Hellenic and the beginning of the Roman period, as well as the complete predomination of Octavius. In memory of his victory, Octavius founded Nikopolis (Victory City) on the southeast end of Epirus. Nikopolis grew quickly into a big city, endowing privileges and defects, as a “free” Greek city and its population consisted of Greek citizens of 20 cities of Etolia, Acarnania and Epirus, but also Corinth, even Italy, who were gathered together there by force. Therefore Nikopolis became a pole of attraction for the Mediterranean area, because of its three ports, its excellent geographical position as a junction between Epirus – Etolia – Acarnania and also between Greece – Italy and the refoundation of Aktia – which were held every five years – as a kind of Olympic Games. Strabo mentions that Nicopolis was one of the biggest cities. Majestic public buildings and works of art decorated the city. The aqueduct ended into the Nymph eon – identical, two storeys building facing the Ionian Sea – which was the main entrance to the city from the sea. Nearby lies the Odeon, to the east of which there are the Byzantine Walls. The Theatre – opposite the Odeon, situated over today’s national road, the Stadium, the Augustus Monument, the Bishop’s Palace, the Alkysson´s Basilica, the Demetrios Basilica (with excellent mosaics of the 5th century A.D.) etc. are some of the monuments, which have been discovered. In the Museum of Nikopolis, there are distinguished findings to be seen, such as statues, sarcophages, coins etc.

The Technological Educational Institutes are distinguished from Universities, concerning their role, their graduates’ role, and the content of studies offered. In contrast to the Universities (named A.E.I.), where emphasis is given to theoretical background in basic science and selected topics, the T.E.I. are concerned with the assimilation, application and development of scientific / technological issues. T.E.I.’s orientation is mainly towards applied research and technology.
The T.E.I. of Epirus is a State Institute. It is a self-governed public body subjected to public law and mainly financed from public funds. Education is offered free of charge to students.

The management of the Institute throughout its educational units (Schools, Department, Section) is undertaken by elected members of the teaching staff (Professors or Associate Professors).
According to the Law No 1404/83,each T.E.I. is divided into Schools, each School covering a set of related branches of technological knowledge,so that teaching may be coordinated better. Each School is subdivided into Departments. These are the basic academic units, each of them covers the subjects of one specific branch of knowledge and offers the corresponding degree.
The T.E.I. of Epirus is situated in the North-West part of Greece, with its central administration in the city of Arta. It consists of four Schools and sixteen departments. They are in different cities of the Epirus’ region (from which the T.E.I. gets the name) and on the islands of Kefalonia and Leukada.
