Day 177/366: VatheiaDay 177/366: Vatheiahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vatheia This spectacular fortress village sneaks upon you as you drive up this very narrow, windy road in the mountains. We reached it just as  the sun was setting... It completely took my breath away, so gorgeous! It is a mostly abandoned city today. A few of the towers have been renovated and are lived in but not many.  Some were renovated as part of a scheme to develop tourist accommodation by EOT the Greek tourist organisation but that never worked and is bankrupt, towers all closed up. It used to house different people in the past., I think at some point four dueling clans tried to claim it as theirs. you can read more about the history of the place here.
