Poros Overview

The island's name means narrow strait, and is separated from the Peloponnese by only 370 meters. It is considered not only a very romantic place, but is also great place for families or backpackers.

The beautiful island has many interesting, picturesque and quiet fishing and mountainous villages with nice accommodations built according to the traditional architecture of Greece. It also has a very attractive capital, called Poros Town, where two-storey houses with coloured windows, doors and walls are standing next to fine neoclassical buildings, surrounded by narrow stone-paved streets and alleys.

The ruins of the temple of Poseidon from the 6th century BC and the monastery of Zoodochos Pigis ("Life-giving Source") are just about the two only proper sights on the island. There are also many old, interesting buildings in Poros town.

The clocktower built on the top of the hill offers a breathtaking view. It is vissible from every part of the town and is just nice to stroll around there.
