Photographer's Note

One of the most impressive archaeological sites, not to mention engineering feats of antiquity, the Roman Aquaduct at Moria may be hard to find, but once found, not easily forgotten. In Roman times the aquaduct supplied Mytilini with water from the springs near Agiassos 26 kilometers away. Called the Kamares, the aquaduct was built of grey marble from Lesvos. If it had been in southern France it would be world famous, but because of its isolation most tourists don't bother.
