Kea (Tzia) Island: a weekend destination of growing interest

On the occasion of a wedding which I attended, I spent the weekend of 11th and 12th June 2005 in Kea (Tzia), an island of the Cyclades complex. Its proximity to Attica has made it a weekend destination of growing interest to many Athenians over the recent years. I took the opportunity to tour around the island and the following pictures are the outcome of this tour.
