These are the places we visited in Kythera The photos weren't necessarily taken by us. I have dedicated this board in memory of my dear Mother who left Kythera as a young child and didn't make it back to see her beloved homeland.
Mylopotamos, Kythira,Greece In the town there are three Caves, a Venetian Castle and the Monastery of Orphan Mary. The gorge where the 22 mills are found starts from a magnificent waterfall named "Fonisa",(Φόνισσα, female killer), the only one on the island. The stream above the waterfall springs from the mountain in the middle of town, by the "platea" square,during the summer coming right out from the mountain
