The Rock of Icarus

The Rock of Icarus

Located in the middle of the sea, about 20 metres from the village of Chrysostomos, lies the rock of mythological Icarus, who is said to have lost his wings and fallen into the sea at that point. A small stone amphitheatre has been built on site, and many various events are frequently held there. In a field across the water, lie the pieces of a broken iron mine cart, which is referred to as the “blood of Icarus”, according to local tradition.
