Hydra Island !!!!!! Bastions with cannons...!!!!!!

Hydra Island  !!!!!! Bastions with cannons...!!!!!!
Along the two sides of the harbor you can see the bastions that were built to protect the town. Although we visited them for the magnificent views from there we also noticed the numerous old cannons that lie there and used in the old times for the protection of the harbor, no hostile ship could easily pass through with rows of cannons pointing on it. The cannons were the main weapon of the island during War of Independence 1821.
