one of the many agios yannis on the island, this one is just outside potamos and on the entry to agios theodoros, the church is on the main road , how many times have you passed this little church as you drive up and down the ''kythera freeway''
one of the priests of the island leaves the famous entry of the lovely church of agia ellessa, after the service on the 1st august, if you are on the the island during august ,attend one of the other services on during that month eg, at agia ellessa or agia moni, you will be moved by the ceremony, it is a great morning with every one wishing you ''xpona pola'' you will feel a higher love for the rest of the day!!

One of the most exciting events that occurred on the island this year was the opening up of the (ancient) church of Ayios Kosmas [there are many Ayios Kosmas on the island], on Paliokastro.
I was priveleged to be part of the financing (in Australia), and the discovery, on the island.
A real boys and girls own adventure!
As team leader John Fardoulis notes: "Kythera’s ancient capital was located on the Paleokastro mountain from approximately 600BC – 100AD. Even though the mountain-side city was likely to have been populated by over 1000 people during this period, little has been done to explore what is now an overgrown, inhospitable part of the island - where the ancient capital is now buried."
