Although they seem to be the remains of an abandoned village, stone built ruins on island Mana are indeed a part of a movie set. They were built in the fifties, last century ago, in order to simulate a scenery of some fishermen’s village in Greece.
The film appeared in cinemas in 1959., its original title was in German – “Raubfischer in Hellas” while the title of American version is “As the Sea Rages”, and was a real blockbuster in those days. The famous actress Maria Schell, one of the first movie idols to the postwar generation, played in it together with Cliff Robertson and Cameron Mitchell, and the film was directed by Horst Hächler.
Well, you can also walk among these ruins on a rocky cliff above the blue sea.
And feel like you are part of a movie.
And part of incredible nature, too.
Everyone who visits Kornati will experience this unique landscape. Each time we stop on the island of Mana, over and over we admire the unusual beauty that cannot be found elsewhere.
But be careful, do not get too close to the edges!
We know, after climbing on the hill, on a hot summer day, all you want is to jump into the sea.
But please don’t do it from the top of the rocks 70 meters high . It’s safer to jump a little below…
And after the swim you can see another ruin. But this time an authentic one.
The fort of Tureta was built, according to archeological reserches, in 16th century.
But, more about Tureta next time…
