A row of stone towers delineates the horizon line on a peninsula situated between Diakofti and Agia Pelagia, two towns on the northeast coast of the Greek island of Kythera. More precisely, the peninsula is located 1 km to the east of Kakia Lagada, the lake at the end of the Paleochora canyon. The towers can be seen from a distance of about two kilometers. They are reminiscent of both the old, decaying stone buildings on the island and cairns, man-made piles of stone, often used to mark a path. This path is purely visual: it leads from the sea up the hill, but is hardly reachable.

dimensions: every tower is about man high (150-200 cm)
