Photographer's Note

The joint churches of Panaghia Portiani and Aghios Haralambos in Zefyria, an inland town on the island of Milos.

Zefyria used to be a prosperous town with many churches. Following an eartquake in the 2nd half of the 18th century, the town was abandoned as poisnous gases issued from the ground, causing medical problems for the inhabitants. Today, the town is inhabited again, with these two churches glued to one another sitting in the middle of it. The feast day is 15 August - Assumption, and the festival held in this church is one of the largest on the island.

Glad to be back after a bit of a break caused by work and other matters. Missed my TE family!
