the bridge

I finally decided to complete my series from Kythera, where I traveled last September!

The bridge in Katouni, Kythera, was built during the island’s British domination and it’s the largest stone bridge ever built in Greece, with a length of 110m, height 15m and width 6m. It’s the biggest structure built by the Brits on the island and the construction was supervised by the island’s commander himself. Legend has it, that the commander had fallen in love with a local girl, so he decided to build the bridge under his own supervision so that he could see her more.

Let me clarify that the bridge is still being used to this day. That means that while I was running back and forth to get my shot, people were crossing above. And since it’s a monument some stopped for pictures too. Luckily there was not much traffic though!
