Photographer's Note

Hidden up in the hills behind Halki's harbour is the village of Horio - now in ruins. Above that, marvellously situated on a rocky summit, is the Crusader Castle and the remains of the church of Aghios Nikolaos, which contains remnants of Byzantine frescoes. I loved this area. To sit just below the castle, on the shady side of the hill, taking in the superb views, and watching the ravens and other birds circling the ruins, was a real pleasure. On two of the three times we climbed to this place we had it all to ourselves. Several hours were passed just enjoying the surroundings.
