Kythera is one of the seven Ionian islands. It's south of the Pelloponese. It's the place where three seas meet. According to legend it is the birthplace of Celestial Aphrodite; the goddess of pure love who later appeared in Cyprus. The island has been inhabited since the early stoneage. The Venetians left their mark on the island, which is evident in almost every architectural ruin. The British, who occupied the island for more than one hundred years, are responsible for the island's infrastructure such as roads and bridges. The island is full of picturesque spots and many surprises await the visitor.
