The Shiza Cross is undoubtedly one of the most famous landmarks on Zakynthos. It is situated high on the cliffs at Kampi and is said to have been erected in memory of those who died during the the Greek Civil war. Although these days most people associate it with stunning views and beautiful sunsets.
On one of our recent Sunday Walks, with the Zakynthos walking group, we stopped off to have a nose and take a few pictures (it doesn’t matter how many times you have been to the Shiza Cross, the views are so stunning that photographs are a must!).
As you can see from the picture the cross is huge and is clearly visible from some distance away. When taking this photo I was aiming to capture the vapour trail from the plane before it the plane disappeared out of view. It was a close call, as Muppet here forgot to check the camera was on!

I was tagged by Louise from Little Hearts, Big Love to take part in a Black and White photo challenge on Instagram, for which I used the above photo and with a bit of magic sapped the colour (who needs Harry Potter?).

Have you ever been to Zakynthos and visited the Shiza Cross at Kampi?
