The Great Walls of Kythera Book Project:
Kythera has some extraordinary walls, and good pictures of them would make a fascinating book. If you have some wonderful Kytherian wall pictures then submit them to this category. In 2011 we'll select the best of them to go into a book. Anyone whose picture appears in the book will get 3 free copies and of course be named as the author.

The Hidden Walls of Agios Yiannis

The walls of Agios Yiannis can be found secretly tucked away in the Viaradika Caves. This church was possibly built in the caves during the period where Kythera was regularly raided by pirates and may therefore be approximately 500 years old.
