A small guide to the sights of the island

Karthaia

Remote, on the other side of the island, the ancient state of Karthaia reminisces its old glories. Theatrical performances, poetic games, religious services and mysteries at the temples of Athena and Apollo comprised the glory of the exquisite state of Kartheans. The great poet Pindaros was right not to compare it to any other state, not even to the great Babylon! Today, erected Karthaia welcomes its visitors and offers them not only ancient beauty, but also a unique natural setting.
