TRENDING IN KYTHIRA
Find out everything about your holidays in Kythira on our travel guide! Kythira is a beautiful island located on the southern side of Peloponnese. Although Kythira island belongs to the Ionian islands complex, it lies far from the rest of its Ionian neighbors, so it is rather one of the most secluded Greek islands.
The island’s architecture is strongly influenced by the Venetians, who had ruled the island during the Medieval age. On a hill above Chora, there’s a Medieval Castle, a vestige of the Venetian era, which boasts an incredible view of the Aegean Sea. It is the best spot for sunset gazing!
The most touristy places in Kythira Greece are Kapsali, Agia Pelagia, Avlemonas, and Diakofti, while a drive around the island will get you to wonderful Kythira beaches, picturesque monasteries, and even ghost (!) villages, like the abandoned town of Paleochora.
Kythira will exalt your spirit! Find out how to get there and some amazing photos!!
Kythira Greece is a beautiful island located in the southern part of Peloponnese. Kythira (or Kythera) stands out for its Medieval architecture, secluded beaches, and wonderful natural setting.
The most touristy places in Kythira are Avlemonas, Agia Pelagia, Chora Kythira, and Kapsali. Nevertheless, if you fancy some more secluded places to explore, a drive around the island will bring you to cliff-top villages, abandoned places, hidden beaches, and monasteries. You’re going to discover many surprises!
One of the most iconic sites in Kythira is the Venetian Castle above Chora Kythira, the island’s capital. This castle boasts a panoramic view of the Aegean Sea and the southern coasts of Peloponnese, so it makes a great spot to watch the sun going down.
Apart from the Medieval Castle, don’t miss to visit the monasteries of Agia Moni, Agia Elesa, and Myrtidiotissa, as well as the church inside the cave of Agia Sofia. They will steal your breath with their beauty! Another experience you need to have during your stay in Kythera is a stroll around the ghost village of Paleochora, followed by a plunge at the beach of Lagada below. You can thank us later!
