Gothic architecture on an Ionian island

This is a close-up of one of the Gothic style windows in the Lancastrian school built by the British at Milapidea near Fatsadika. A similar (but smaller) school stands in the main square of Mylopotamos. Both schools were completed in the 1820s and stand as testimony to Kythera's unique blend of Venetian, British and Aegean architecture.

Ruins

A sad fact of life is that many houses and mansions on the island are crumbling as a result of the past exodus of Kytherians from the island. This scene from Karavas is repeated in most areas of the island with deserted houses nestled between occupied residences.
