It was previously called Chora or Agios
Nicolaos port. During the Byzantine era there were only a few houses which
were abandoned because they were an easy target for the pirates. It revived
during the Turkish occupation. There has been a boom in the last decades
and today the ? of the island population lives here. This boom was also
due to the discovery of the icon of Virgin Mary and the construction of
the Evaggelistria church. There are a lot of restaurants, tavernas, cafeterias
and souvenir shops by the waterfront. From the east side of the port the
visitor can enjoy beautiful sunsets.
