Photographer's Note

From: http://www.holiday.gr
Petra is a region of unique beauty. It was named after the famous stone of Kalikatsou, this peculiar and imposing stone that seems to come out of the sea. This is the stone where many excercitants have chosen to live and managed to make it a relatively capacious space of living, carving stairs on it, a pond, places for charcoals and candles leaving their traces for ever.

There are several traditional stories regarding Kalikatsou like the following: At the Monastery of John Theologian there’s a secret door leading to a tunnel. This tunnel crosses the whole south side of Chora and finally reaches the Stone. It is said that it was constructed so that the monks could transfer the scull of St. Thomas as well as the relics and treasures of the Monastery to protect them from pirate raids on the island.
The Rock of Kalikatsou is a result of the volcanic action of Patmos that is related with the sinking of the African Plate under the Eurasian Plate. This action took place about 4 million years ago.
