The Sleeping Beauties of the Cyclades

Once upon a time there was a land, blessed with the gifts of nature, springs, streams, rivers and sea, lush forests, imposing mountains and fertile valleys; a land waking from its long history and the struggles of its past…

Greece! A country split into regions, islands and seas, some of them lively yet some still in trance, waiting for centuries to be discovered.
