Angelokastro, maybe the most impressive castle I have ever seen.
The orchards are beautiful and romantic. But it is hard work, and hard to make a living off it.
In 1517, when the Ottomans attacked Angelokastro, 3,000 villagers had retreated inside the safety of the walls of the castle.
The country: steep, dry hils, overlooking the ocean.
Looking down from Angelokastro - the "flatter" side
Royal beaches - Odysseus lived on Ithaka, the next island.
Looking down from Angelokastro - the steep side
Rock-cliffs on the W-side of the island
The Adriatic sea
Never conquered ....
