Close to Aloisianika.
Just down the road.
Wow. You have a good eye to recognize this local area of Kythira.
We travelled extensively in Kythera – and have studied it. One summer we spent time identifying all the known Venetian period parish churches that show up in the 18th century census records (which are held in the archives in the fortress in Chora). Plus, I was working on a paper on the British built school buildings. So, in a nutshell, we know the island well!
What a great place to spend time identifying Venetian period parish churches and British built schools. I didn’t realize the British had built schools in Kythira. The island has such an interesting history. I never grow tired of spending time on Kythira.
Do a google search on ‘British Lancastrian Schools of Nineteenth Century Kythera’ the article appeared on the Annual of the British School at Athens. All will be explained!
Thanks. I will.
splendid composition between the deep blue of the door and the thinner blue of the sky; an added bonus of that contrasting to the darkness of the entryway, and a subtle staircase leading where?
Thank you, Elusive Trope. The blues of the doors and sky lift the mood of the aged town.
