SUNSET IN KALLITHEA


Kallithea (Rhodes) at sunset and dusk... a stunning location with a wonderful atmosphere! The light is just magical, and the former thermal baths glowing in their original splendor from the late 1920s... The floors are covered in pebble mosaics, which are typical for the Dodecanese and called chochlakia.
