medieval settlement

Part of a mountain settlement where the community were able to hide from pirates. It lies several hundred meters above the present-day village of Chrysostomo, near which Icarus was reputed to have fallen at the end of his ill-fated flight. The view from the village is identical to that of the well-known painting of Icarus' fall by Pieter Brueghel.

Ikaria, Greece
