Historic Quarter

To find the most picturesque and historic part of town, take the lane east of the Village Pub past a large boulder known as the Stone of the Couple, which has a plaque describing how it was thought to bring good luck to newlyweds...until it toppled over and crushed one very unlucky couple.

The houses here have traditional trussed roofs, covered with reeds and tiles and supported by beams with overhanging wooden balconies. Seek out the simple Metamorposis Sotiros chapel, as well as a small wine museum, tucked up a side street but well signposted.
