Is a Greek island in the North Aegean sea, south of Chios, north of Patmos and off the coast of Asia Minor (Kusadasi, Turkey). It is separated from Turkey by approximately 1 mile (1.6 km). While largely mountainous, Samos has several relatively large and fertile plains.
A great portion of the island is covered with vineyards, from which the famous Samian wine is made. The most important plains are that of Karlovasi in the northwest, Marathokampos in the southwest and Pythagorio, in the southeast.
Is here where the great Pythagoras, the mathematician, the geometrician and philloshopher lived and teached.
