Our first visit to Kithira to visit a friend proved well worthwhile and rewarding.
Kithira is an island to the south of the mainland and is about 250 square kilometres with only 4,000 inhabitants.
It has a long history with inhabitation traced back to 4000 years BC. Here is a view of Kapsali from the castle in Chora
Inside a beautiful Greek Church in the island’s capital Chora.

Overlooking one of the many small fishing ports on the island
The town of Chora. April was not tourist season so we had the many small towns to ourselves.
