This resulted in it being very prosperous and developing into a cultural and intelligent centre as well. You can pay a visit to the "Greek School" where the poet Kostas Varnalis taught literature.

You will be amazed with the beautiful walks you can take along the cobble paths whilst watching the old traditional houses as you pass them. These houses are heavily influenced from the ancient Byzantine years.

You will also be amazed with the belfry of the church of Agioi Apostolis, which is very tall (45m) and was made from marble by local workmen in 1914.
