Kythira, also known as Kythera, Cythera, Cerigo or Tsirigo is a Greek island in the Peloponesian Sea and part of the Ionian Islands. It is an isolated island at the foot of the Peloponnese and only around 285 square km. In the Greek mythology Kythira is considered the birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and Eros, who was said to have emerged from the sea here.

Nature has endowed Kythira with places of incredible natural beauty and authenticity. The rugged terrain with steep rocky cliffs, deep bays and beautiful deserted beaches are the result of prevailing winds from the surrounding seas.
Places of interest are the Venetian castle which dominates the picturesque capital of the island Chora, the graphic coastal village of Avlemonas with its creeks and the fortified Byzantine town of Paleochora, founded in the 11th century.
