Photographer's Note

Agios Efstratios (Άι-Στράτης)(Saint Efstratios),is the third and the smallest island of Lesvos Municipality but belongs to Lemnos island. The island is only 21 miles away from Lemnos.
Main occupation of local people s fishing and less cattle-breeding and farming. The island took his name from Agios Efstratios who during iconoclasm disembarked on the island, interrupting his journey to the place of expulsion. His grave is there also.
The settlement (the only village) and the port of Agios Efstratios are at the northwestern side of the island. The village is new since in 1968 an earthquake destroyed the houses and the inhabitants had to rebuilt the village.
