Sicily – Isole dei Ciclopi

100_5810

the Isole dei Ciclopi, Aci Trezza, Sicily

According to legend, this is where Odysseus and his men were captured by cyclops Polyphem. To escape, Odysseus blinded Polyphem and led his men to freedom.

Polyphem, in his rage, hurled huge rocks after their boat, or after where he assumed the boat to be. These rocks are still here today, as a reminder not to anger one-eyed giants ;)
