Frankish castle is located on an islet across the main island connected with an arched stone bridge dating back to the 13th century. No wonder it is known to be home to many famous Greek captains and ship owners as it is considered the main village on the island, Chora. By the time you arrive at that beautiful place, one would significantly notice the combination of medieval, neoclassical and island-style houses. The village has an uncommon flight of stairs around the public square and narrow streets. It is recommended not to miss the remarkable churches and museums, and take a break in its beautiful shops, cafes and restaurants.
