I visit Kythira


If you are asking yourself why you should visit Kythira, the answer is that many consider it a select destination. It is for you to discover the reasons why.


incredibly rich history and rare beauty are exemplified by the following: its historical traditions, local culture and educated, sociable inhabitants, its proximity to the most ancient computer mechanism (Antikythira mechanism), the coast on which the ship Elgin used to transport the Acropolis marbles foundered, its magnificent historical monasteries, unique virgin and unpolluted coasts, the remarkable Mylopotamos waterfalls and its green sea-water lake.
Visitors return to Kythira again and again for reasons you have to see with your own eyes, just as we did.


The Antikythera MECHANISM

is an ancient Greek analogue computer and orrery used to predict astronomical positions and eclipses for calendrical and astrological purposes. It could also track the four-year cycle of athletic games which was similar, but not identical, to an Olympiad, the cycle of the ancient Olympic Games.
