The island

The island of Agios Efstratios, Agios-Stratis for the locals, has an extent of 43,3 square kilometres and its biggest part is rocky, mountainous and unapproachable (less than 1/3 of its extent is cultivated).
Its population is about three hundred residents that mainly deal with fishery and least with livestock-farming and agriculture.
From 1928 until 1960 Agios Efstratios is known as a place of exile for many eponymous and other 3000-4000 anonymous exiled people that lived in tents.
