Loutro - The Venetian Fortress

If you climb the hill the village is built on you get to the ruins of a Venetian fortress.

Like in a front garden one is surrounded by a stony desert with crippled old trees and a view to the sea.

Years ago lovers of this place have assembled an 'energy spiral' out of stones that is being constantly renewed.
