Acropolis...island

This beautiful neighborhood is Anafiotika, one of the first settlements in Athens just after the Greek Revolution of 1821. The first inhabitants were from the island of Anafi and, as they did in their own land, they settled just under the Acropolis. They brought their island architecture too so the result is something you could see in Aegean.
