Although Kythira island is considered part of the Ionian Sea, it is located far from the other Ionian islands. After a long time of Venetian occupation in the Medieval ages, this island has a vivid Venetian architecture, especially in Chora, the capital town. On a hill above Chora, there is a strong castle with breathtaking view to the Aegean Sea. Kapsali, Agia Pelagia, Avlemonas and Diakofti are the most tourist places on Kythira Greece, while a drive around the island will bring visitors to wonderful beaches, lovely monasteries and even ghost villages, like the abandoned town of Paleochora.
The Kytherian sea is the birthplace of goddess Aphrodite according to Hesiodus fable. Due to its strategic location it has a long history and has been influenced by many civilizations and cultures. This fact is reflected in its architect.
Kythira is an island of unique majesty and beauty which keeps its authentic characteristics and offers a sense of calmness and revitalization to the visitor.
