Attractions Short description
Burtzi On a small peninsula, you can visit the main city fortress, located near the central harbor. The Venetians were involved in the construction of the fortress, later it served as their residence. Today it houses a house-museum with a city library and a theater.
Annunciation Monastery Its second name is Evangelistria. Its construction was carried out by ascetic monks, who then lived on Mount Athos. The monastery dates from the 17th century. The uniqueness of the impressive building is given by its location – the inability to see from the sea. This was done in order to protect against pirate invasions.
