This is an official from Austria but the card is from the Karpathos Island, Greece. The card shows the ruins of the Paleochristian basilica of Agia Fotini.

AT-60341, sent by Anneliese.

"Karpathos is the second largest of the Greek Dodecanese islands, in the southeastern Aegean Sea. The island includes the municipality of Karpathos plus the community of Olympos. Part of Olympos also extends north to the neighboring Saria Island. From its remote position Karpathos has preserved many peculiarities of dress, customs and dialect, the last resembling those of Crete and Cyprus." - in: wikipedia
