Kastrovouni Mountain, Samos Island, Greece

Kastrovouni means "Castle Mountain" in greek. This unknown destination hides a very interesting history with settlements going back to 11 century, in a period when the Aegean population was terrified by pirates and as a result was seeking refuge on the top of the mountains. Feel free to read my travelogue to this place with more photos and descriptions in Greek here http://www.isamos.gr/afierwma_kastrovouni/
