--- Quote ---Where Was The Lost Daughter Filmed?

‘The Lost Daughter’ was filmed in Spetses, an island and a municipality in the Greek administrative region of Attica. Located in the Mediterranean Sea, the island town proved to be the perfect filming site as the team was looking for a scenic but safe place that could host the production of the movie since the COVID-19 pandemic was still at its peak. The filming crew utilized several locations on the island, such as the Anargyrios and Korgialenios School of Spetses (AKSS) and the Zogeria Restaurant.

Born in 1830 in Argostoli, following the impoverishment of his family after death of his father, Marinos Koryialenios prematurely curtailed his education and worked for several English merchants in Greece. He later moved to London where he rose to become vice-director of a merchant bank. Subsequently he established a stockbroking company where he made his fortune. He bequeathed much of his estate to 'good causes' around Greece, such as the Koryialenios Library in Argostoli and Anargyrios and Koryialenos School on Spetses.

Established as an Eton-style boarding school for the children of Greece's wealthy and influential, many of Greece's elite were educated there. The school inspired John Fowles to write The Magus after he taught there in the early nineteen fifties.

Back in 1984 Tim Severin's Argo, a replica of a Greek Bronze-age boat, was built by Vassili Delimitros in his boatyard in the Old Harbour area of Spetses. Severin sailed the boat to Colchis in Soviet Georgia to prove the Jason and the Argonauts myth had some basis in fact. It seems that in that area sheep fleeces were used to pan for gold in rivers - the tiny nuggets were caught in the wool.

I worked and lived on Spetses back in 1999 and the school was semi derelict. Happily, it's been restored and is now a popular conference centre and base for summer schools. In summer this island was bustling, mostly with Athenians as the nearest airport is in Athens, a four hour coach and ferry ride away across the Corinth Canal. In winter it was very quite and, back in the fifties must have been a very different place even during the summer, almost isolated.
