Photographer's Note

At the very tip of the island of Santorini, Greece lies the remains of the Kastelli (Castle) of Aghios Nikolaos, which was destroyed in the earthquake of 1956. This castle was built in 1482 to protect the village against the increasing threat of pirates and sits right on the edge of Oia. Unfortunately much of the castle has long fallen into the sea. This is the famous place where tourists flock every evening, to see the fabulous sunsets.
