Bavaria Holiday 38 returning from Methana

[dropcap style=”1″]N[/dropcap]nice sailing day returning from Methana situated on a volcanic (the Methana Volcano) peninsula, attached to the Peloponnese. This video has being filmed by a second boat. The trip started from Kalamaki, Athens, and ended in the harbor of Vathi. Two miles before reaching the harbor you pass by Krasopanagia, a nice chapel built on the cliffs.

[dropcap style=”1″]L[/dropcap]egend has it that a seaman sailing by this area with his boat loaded with barrels of wine, found himself in a storm. Being in grave danger, the seaman prayed to the Virgin Mary promising to build a chapel there using wine. After he was saved, he kept his promise building Krasopanagia, using soil and wine instead of water.
