On the road to Karthea, an ancient theater near the seaside, this landscape appears on your way.
Wild dry mountains in which people have placed stones, creating thus gradual steps to support the trees and to facilitate their passage as well. It is a landscape revealing to us the interaction between humans and environment over the time. Apart from the grey tufts of mainly olive trees (Olea europaea) with significant importance for the Greek environment and culture, we observe in the center of the photo two donkeys, a mother and the child grazing on the summer hit.
