Photographer's Note

View of the picturesque harbor of Kastellorizo (or "Meghisti") island under a full moon. Kastellorizo is one of the most beautiful Greek islands. It is also one of the smallest and it's definitely the most remote. It belongs to Dodekanese (or "Dodekanisos", it means "12 islands") and it is located 72 miles east of Rhodes island, while its distance from the south Turkish coast and the town of Kas is only 1,25 miles. It has only one but really beautiful and colorful village with very interesting architecture. Its current population is around 400 people, while in its heyday (first decades of the 20th century) its population reached around 15.000 inhabitants.

Kastellorizo was the shooting location for the Italian film "Mediterraneo" that won the Academy Award (Oscar) for Best Foreign Language Film in 1991.

It is really the ideal place for quite and peaceful vacations, it's quite a "timetravel"!
