Kithira, the island of Aphrodite

On the spot where the Aegean, the Ionian and the Cretan Seas meet, floats the island of Aphrodite, Kithira, also known as Tsirigo. According to the myth, goddess Aphrodite was born here and it was therefore a meeting point for lovers. The island has been occupied various times by pirates and emperors and reminds visitors of another era. Kithira is one of the few islands that remain pure, in spite of the mass tourism.
