Pots of pink and red geraniums add pops of colour to a blue-painted footpath on the Kastro hillside above Plaka village on Milos island. This is only one of many impressive sights visitors will encounter while hiking the steep footpath from Plaka to Kastro. The spectacular panoramic views from the Kastro mountain peak, especially at sunset, are a “must-see” attraction on Milos.
That’s me at the blue lane during our climb to Kastro for sunset

You’ll pass the lane partway up the path to Kastro. It’s a pretty place to stop and catch your breath before climbing the rest of the steep steps to the mountaintop.
A wall-mounted planter brings the lane’s blue theme to eye level
The lane bathes in the golden glow of the slowly-setting sun
The Gulf of Milos and mountains on the west side of the gulf are visible from the end of the lane …
… as you can see from this shot, taken facing toward the west and looking down the steps we have climbed so far
We saw this cat sitting in the lane during our first visit to Milos back in 2007
