The petrified King at the Kaprous

Gradou is an area located between Skala and Poros. Here the trees, including age - old olive - trees, grow on draughty stone and lean towards the water, with a few creeks flowing through them into the sea. Wild pigeons fly out of the sea caves and then vanish into the blue sky above the dominating rocks. Myth has it that the human - like stones in Kapri are the petrified King and his family, who lived in a city that submerged. Local legends speak of the water nymphs who live in the area's gullies and caves. The locals believe that at nights without moon, water nymphs come out of their hiding places to meet humans. And these are just some of popular memories keeping within them the ancient secrets of life; they have spread through legends, fairy - tales and dreaming fantasies created by people in a place resembling an ark full of rich treasures
