Lappatoniou Castle

Lappatoniou castle is about an hour and a half's walk from Horio to the west beyond Ksissos. The view from this ancient castle is always stunning despite the haze (yesterday) and well worth the walk.

A view across to the Datca peninsular on Turkey in the distance. Roukouniotis Monastery in the lower right and Flat island next to Fat island above.

Another Autumn crocus which seems to do well around this area. Colchicum Pusillum.
