The most northern island of the Aegean Sea is also called the Emerald Island, being a place of fascinating beauty. It also has a rich history and archaeological sites scattered throughout the island. One can combine amusement with archaeological interests so long as there are monuments remaining since its glory days from the past.
Among the many towns and villages of the island, we have reserved a mention to the following ones:
The capital of the island is its major port too. Actually, it is called Limenas which means “port” in Greek. The history of the island, which goes back as far as the prehistoric times, has left some very important tracks around the area of Limenas, among which we recommend strolling around the ancient ruins, as well as visiting the ancient theater – shows are held in it in the summer time. The archaeological museum offers you a more systematic acquaintance with the island’s antiquities.
Other beautiful and worth visiting settlements are Panagia,Drakotripa,Skala ,Rachoniou, Prinos, Sotíras, Limenária, Mariés, Potós, and Theológos.
