Ikaria


posted at 07:47

After have built the Labyrinth, where Minos, King of Crete imprisoned the Minotaur, Daedalus made wax wings for him and his son, Icarus, in order to escape from the island and return back home in Athens.

Icarus negligent to his father's instructions, flew too near the hot sun. Melting his wings, he drowned himself, falling into the sea.

To his memory, the sea was named "the Icarian Sea" and the closest island "Icaria".


Don't miss Elenis' beautiful photos of Ikaria, this little known Aegean Greek island!
