Kythira Greece is a beautiful island located in the southern part of Peloponnese.
Kythira stands out for its Medieval architecture, secluded beaches, and wonderful natural setting. The most touristy places in Kythira are Avlemonas, Agia Pelagia, Chora Kythira, and Kapsali. Nevertheless, if you fancy some more secluded places to explore, a drive around the island will bring you to cliff-top villages, abandoned places, hidden beaches, and monasteries. You’re going to discover many surprises!
One of the most iconic sites in Kythira is the Venetian Castle above Chora Kythira, the island’s capital. This castle boasts a panoramic view of the Aegean Sea and the southern coasts of Peloponnese, so it makes a great spot to watch the sun going down.
Apart from the Medieval Castle, don’t miss to visit the monasteries of Agia Moni, Agia Elesa, and Myrtidiotissa, as well as the church inside the cave of Agia Sofia. They will steal your breath with their beauty! Another experience you need to have during your stay in Kythera is a stroll around the ghost village of Paleochora, followed by a plunge at the beach of Lagada.
