fishing village

limonias , was the fishing village for the mylopotamo area , the men of the village would spend a few days at limonias staying at those little huts fishing for food for the families and selling the fish to people at the surrounding villages , these days the old fishing village is a pleasant beach with a kiosk with food and drinks to have a great day swimming.. and of course there is a little church on the far hill ... I am sure its called agios nikolas ....

how lovely are you ?...

another little church I found near the village of viarathika, this could have been like a lot of small churches on the island that could have been privately owned by families of kythera many years ago ...this church must have celebrated recently with the dressing on the door...
