Islands Lost in Time: Hydra Port

Hydra

Hydra is one of the Saronic Islands of Greece, located in the Aegean Sea between the Saronic Gulf and the Argolic Gulf. The locals are known as Hydriots. Interviews include internationally acclaimed Hydriot artist Panayotis Tetsus at a showing of his paintings along with a host of ex-patriots who have followed in Henry Miller and Leonard Cohen’s footsteps only to make Hydra their home. A preserved architectural and historical landmark, Hydra is the only developed Greek island with a ban on cars.  (Click images to enlarge.)
