Just got back from my summer holiday and (as usual) I took a few photos of some of the scenery and wildlife we happened upon.... and not surprisingly, some moggies were amongst the collection.
Castro or Castle Castro is the medieval town of Skiathos in Greece, which was built on a gigantic rock several hundred feet above sea level. Castro is situated in the northern part of this Greek island, and took us around an hour by boat to reach from the new capital of the island.
Amongst the ruins stand some middle ages houses and at least three churches (I counted). High on the clifftop are stunning panoramic views of the Aegean sea which can be seen in the photographs above. A single cannon from those 'days of pirates' is still intact amongst the remains of the ruined town. Amazingly Castro was the old capital of this island from 1538 until 1829.
