The Land Beyond

I love and respect lesser-known archaeological sites and write often about Perachora, which in Greek means the land beyond.

Perachora is one of Greece’s best kept secrets. Her few visitors are either on some archaeological quest or have personal attachment to the site.

As is my case. So intense is my love for this site that I relocated to an apartment with a view of the Perachora peninsula from across the Corinthian Gulf.

After a tiring day, just one gaze off my balcony and I can see a slow, blinking light. This is the Perachora lighthouse, towering over her archaeological remains – alerting ships passing by.

Throughout the seasons,I have gathered hundreds of shots of the peninsula, during different phases of the year.

The Land Beyond engulfed in a rain shower

Strong winds over the gulf

Wind surfers…

Large waves

…and the Meltemi winds.

After a Winter storm…sunlight breaks over the peninsula, giving the ancient site an aura.
