Old Town, Patitiri, Alonissos Greece

On 16th May wespent the morning in the Old Town or Chora. It was the capital of the island before 1965 when an large earthquake hit the island. The earthquake destroyed the village and the inhabitants were then forced to move down to Patitiri.
After the earthquake many foreigners as well as Greeks, started to buy the old houses. They kept the character of the village, repairing many of the old buildings and restoring them to their original splendor. There are many unexpected corners to photograph. They are holding a dance Festival on July8th/9th. These dancers were doing a publicity video and were happy to pose for me.
