1495 – Cape Akrathos


Cape Akrathos is a real cape. It is the end of the peninsula and the view from all sides is stunning.

akrathos1The last house on the cliff is inhabited by father Iosif. My brother Wim met him in 2011. Father Iosip has a good relationship with the pilots of the Greek airforce. Greek fighterjets fly over his property regulary. This is what Wim reported.
