The former capital of Kythera, Agios Dimitrios, was sacked by the Ottoman pirate Barbarossa in 1537. It is now known as Paliohora. Several churches, including Agios Antonios which is pictured, remain somewhat intact whilst the surrounding walls and structures have deteriorated with time. This photo was inspired by a photograph taken by the famous Greek photographer, Nikos Desyllas, in his book "The Ionian Islands".
