GR-14398 - Pylos


GR-14398 sent by katrin_s

This was my first card from Greece, from the city of Pylos. This is a partial and colored view of the bay.

"Pylos historically known under its Italian name Navarino [...] Pylos' bay is formed by a deep indenture in the Morea, shut in by a long island, anciently called Sphacteria or Sphagia (modern name Sfaktiria), famous for the defeat and capture of the Spartans, in the Battle of Pylos during the Peloponnesian War, and still showing the ruins of walls which perhaps formed their last refuge" In: Wikipedia
