It is most likely a memory plate. It is on an old bridge, will do some photoshopping tonight for more details. There is some Greek text on it. However I am unable to translate it.

Beachcombers,

I reckon your photo is taken on the track going down towards Prevelli on the left hand (as your looking at the sea) side of the river and the caravan is the cantina down there.

Correct,
The sign on the cantina did not make it very difficult though.

correct Mr R!   It's just off the road to prevelli from lefkogia way

there's a plaque on both sides of the bridge which i think says something about it being built by the Preveli monestery and when it was built (IIRC...and i wouldn't want anyone to think i can read it)

I guess if I had enlarged the picture I may have seen the sign but this was not visible otherwise.
