Photographer's Note

Kastri is the name of the islet just across and in a short distance from the shore line,with its small church of Agios Nicolaos, to protects all sailors.

Kefalos

Kefalos is 40 kilometers south-west of Kos town and it’s a beautiful village built on a hill at the west side of the island. By antiquity it was the first capital city of the island and today it counts some 2.500 permanent residents. The houses here are built so close one to another that the narrow streets created emphasise the traditional architectural features of most Greek islands, which invite you to make a tour in the history and life of the place. One of the most interesting buildings is the traditional house, a folk museum which includes a representation of the villages’ agricultural life back then and next to it completing the scenery is a traditional windmill. The picture of the old town is completed by the ruins of the old castle, just next to the main village. In Kamari, at a distance of only 1 kilometer on the eastside of Kefalos you can find a marina which provides its services for many yachts and small boats during the summer. In Kamari you can see the Early Christian basilicas of Agios Stefanos, dating back to the 5th century and admire the still preserved parts of the mosaic decoration along with other remnants.
