HISTORY

Kythera has a long and rich history. Archaelogical research at Diakofti, Dragonares, Agios Georgios sto Vouni and other locations has uncovered traces of human habitation dating back to before 3000 BC. A wealth of palaeontological finds over extensive areas of the island, at Mitata and Viaradika, indicate that the island emerged from the surrounding sea. In ancient Greek mythology the goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, was born from the foam of the sea off the coast of Kythera.
