Artist's Description

Vathy Village Ithaca island, Ionian sea, Greece
Vathy is the largest village of Ithaca and has been the capital and main harbour of the island since the 16th century.It is a picturesque village of about 2000 inhabitants, built amphitheatrically around a deep and sheltered bay with a narrow entrance.
The earthquakes of 1953 had almost totally destroyed the village, leaving only a few buildings standing. Fortunately, most of the destroyed Venetian buildings were rebuilt in the same style. Vathy is considered a traditional inhabitation and any construction different of the traditional architectural style and colour is prohibited by a law voted in 1978.
