I seriously doubt there’s many atheists in the part of the world I’ve just been which was Greece and the Sporades Islands. Its a part of the world steeped in myths and legends and has some very lovely churches indeed. On the island of Skiathos I climbed to the abandoned city of Kastro, once a haven from pirates and now home to an isolated church on some headland where the Greek flag flies. The Aegean sea was azure blue underneath cyan skies, Skiathos is a beautiful island. I was told in the neighbouring island of Skopelos there’s so many churches that they have to take it in turns to open!
