View of Viaradika from Mitata

This image is part of a photographic documentary series entitled “One Year on Kythera”. “One Year on Kythera” was created by photographer Kristina Williamson, who spent one calender year living on Kythera, documenting the lives of Kytherians today; what aspects of traditional life remain in practice and in what ways the island is changing.

Viarathika Caves

This is a view from Mitata over to Viarathika and the cave-church next to the ravine entrance in the middle of the picture. There is a legend about the caves, which might be a myth as I have heard the story told about other caves in other parts of the world. The story goes that when the turks (or pirates) were maurading on the island looking for slaves etc. many villagers hid in these caves. One of the women had a baby and, when the mauraders were getting close and the baby wouldn't stop crying, she smothered the baby at her breast, killing it, and the group went undiscovered.
