Patroklos is only a small and uninhabited Greek Island, located about 65 km from Athens and 3 km from Cape Sounio. But, for reasons that I prefer not to explain, it is an important place to me.
Patroklos is also a personage in Greek mythology and one of the most prominent personalities in Homer's Iliad.


It is a very beautiful and peaceful spot. Are these fish farms in the left foreground?

Yes, they are fish farms. At the extreme left there is also a very small lighthouse.

Kunstvolle Aussage! 
Statt auf dem Inselhügel zu stehen und zu Fotografieren, nein, vom Meer aus.

@Hans-Jürgen: I have to agree. Cape Sounion is a great place, especially at sunset.
@Walter: It is not easy to reach the island of Patroklos. If you do not have a boat, the only way is to try to ask to a fisherman (hoping that then he take you back ;) ).
