Taken in the village of Ano Viannos (Άνω Βιάννος) , I forget the name of the church although it seemed an important church is that makes sense? Set high up in the village it seemed to have been renovated a little and in generally good condition. I dunno, it just seemed a little more important than others. I seem to remember that the sun was causing something of an issue so bodies had to be used to block the sun!
During the Second World War the German soldiers raised hell in the village. On September 14, 1943 440 men from the village were killed and another 200 men were arrested. Much of the village was bombed down. This in retaliation for the resistance from the people of the village against the Germans. Nearby the village, you'll find a number of monuments in memory of those horrific events. The largest monument stands in the nearby village of Krevatas. Also during the domination by the Turks the residents paid the toll for the resistance that they offered. For those of you with an interest here is an aerial view of the village.

(so sad baby so glad girl)
When you first came round I was sad
My head hung down I felt really bad
Now I'm glad, glad about the good times that we've had

Walked in the park
kissed in the dark

leaves burned just like just like a spark
Now I'm glad
glad about the good times that we've had

You went away I cried night and day
for what you done I had to pay
Left me so blue I don't know
where to go or what to do
please come back and let the sun shine through

Sun passed behind a cloud
I felt so proud
We walk down the street people smile that we meet
And I'm glad glad about the good times that we've had
You said I was the best man that you've ever had oh!
Now I'm glad oh so glad /i>
