The ruins of an ancient city can be found only by boat or walking (there is an option to go by donkey as well but I don’t recommend it!) Karthea, also known as Poles, on the southeast coast of the island founded in the 12th century B
At the end of the village you will find yourself on the old stone road that takes you past the spring of Kounderis. A little past the cemetery and a small whitewashed church is the Lion of Kea, a huge statue carved out of granite from the 6th century BC.
A true gem not to be overlooked. Intricate displays showing maps and areas of the island, followed by artifacts found done in those areas. Attractive, informative and as far as I’m concerned just the right size and amount of information to be enjoyable and educational. Neither too heavy or dull or overwhelming. For all ages. Don’t pass it up.
