Aktio seen from Prevesa

Aktio (Aktion in ancient Greek and Actium in Latin) seen from Prevesa. Prevesa is situated at the north and Aktio is at the south of the entrance to the Amvrakikos gulf from the Ionian sea.

This place is famous for the decisive naval battle of Actium between Agrippa, Octavianus' general, and Mark Anthony with Cleopatra, on 2 September 31 BCE. The photo below is the zoom-up of the opposite Aktio, in which you can see a fortress.
