Robert McCabe – Katerina Lymperopoulou: ‘’The Last Monk of Strofades’’
WHAT: The exhibition brings alive the history of a monastic complex (a fortified monastery) that is of unique historical, architectural and cultural significance, dating back to the 13th century. The complex dominates a secluded corner of the Ionian Sea, a small island, just one-third the length of a typical airport runway, called Stamfani, part of the Strofades complex of islands. Despite its diminutive size, the island has a unique history and preserves rich flora and fauna, thanks to its remarkable geological features.
