WELCOME TO KYTHIRA!
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 a secluded island.
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 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!
