East of Livadi and heading towards Fyri Ammos is located the fortified church of Agios Theologos. Note the parapet which allowed observers to keep a look out for raiders. The church of Agios Theologos commands views of the island all the way across to Avlemonas.

Below the village of Kato Hora is the beach at Limionas. The seaside huts are reputed to have been built by Saracen raiders who used the island as a staging base for raids on passing ships.
In 1985 I walked into the gully below the bridge at Katouni to capture the immense arches. The central arch is 15 metres high.

The contrast of blue and whitewash is highlighted by this staircase at Potamos just up from the town square.
On the way to the famous monastery you come across the hollowed rock which allows cars to pass through.
Mylopotamos, as the name connotes, has an abundance of fresh water. The highlight is the waterfall below the town square.
One of the summer's great luxuries is to enjoy a cappuccino on the beach at Kapsali.
Just before the decent to Kapsali I came across this striking pot on the roadside. The Kastro looms in the background.
