Favorite thing: The Drapanos Bridge, at the harbour which dates back to the period of the British protection, connects the town with the other part of the bay.
It was built in 1813 under the responsibility of the Colonel de Bosset (from Switzerland) on behalf of the English. The date of the construction used to be written on a plaque on the obelisk standing in the centre of the bridge. However, it dosn't exist anymore.
