Photographer's Note

Olymbos is described as a living museum, and in many ways, Olymbos is still an open living museum, of architecture, ethnology, linguistics, musicology. It is also the most famous place for tourists and the village is one of the few places in the world that is ruled by women.

Women over forty, still wear their colorful traditional robe, and seem to be doing all the work, unlike men, who only seem to be eternally involved in singing dancing and playing the lyra (local music instrument resembling a violin).
