Amir Ali Springs (Karavas village)

Local legend has it that a Kytherean decided to rebel against the Ottoman law that required Greek men to hand over their wives the local Ottoman leader on their wedding night. Disguised in women’s clothing, the Kytherean man pretended to be his wife and went to the Ottoman ruler Amir Ali in order to spare his wife. Amir Ali beheaded him by the springs which, despite this gruesome history, are immensely beautiful and refreshing.
