Alleys of Apeiranthos

As a follow up to my post on Greece, I wanted to highlight the mountainous village of Apeiranthos for its mesmerizing and sometimes disorienting layout. The reason behind the maze-like city planning, however, is actually quite practical: in Venetian times it was meant to confuse and deter any pirates who sought to raid the village. Untouched centuries later, the beautiful marble pathways now establish this village as one of the most popular attractions on the island of Naxos.
