The visitor can choose between a long or short tour of this beautiful pinecovered island in a horse-drawn carriage. The main sights are the 11th century monastery of Ag Trias and the Byzantine Kamariotissa church and there are also the landmarks of the naval academy and sanatorium. The town has lovely old wooden houses but is relatively large and part of the island is occupied by the military.
