Photographic Print. A metal shrine on the hill above Loutro, on the Greek Island of Crete.
Loutro is a small waterfront fishing village of white houses, hotels and tavernas
nestling around a curved bay on the South West Coast of Crete. One of Loutro's
main attractions is
that there are no roads or traffic as the White Mountains, Lefka Ori,
rise up directly behind the village, cutting
it off, making it a quiet place. It can only be reached by walking or by boat. There are regular ferry
boats from surrounding south coast ports or from locals. At the far end
of the village, there is a
paved path to the left up a slope which becomes a dirt
track and the coastal path. I took the photograph of the shrine on this hill where there are some rings of stones, goats, Roman and Medieval ruins and a castle, Kules of Loutro which is a Turkish fortress built around 1868. There has been a settlement here
since Roman times. Only a few hundred people live here, and the place
is almost deserted in winter months.
