Patitiri village is the beautiful central harbour and the capital of the island. Τhe village took its name from the time of the cultivation of the vineyards. It was the most important wealth of the local population.
The Old Village of Alonissos
is a mix of narrow streets and steep stairs; climbing vines and flower gardens surround local stone-built houses. Located in a privileged part of the island, the view from the Old Village is fantastic. The Old Village (Chora) was the capital of the island. Nowadays, it’s a place with remarkable architectural monuments, such as the medieval castle overlooking the Aegean Sea.
Visit the National Marine Park of Alonnisos. It was the first Marine Park established in Greece. It is currently the largest marine protected area in Europe. Founded in 2003, the benefit of the park was its protection of species at risk of their extinction. Species like goats, birds, reptiles and fish which are rich in their abundance and variety.
There are special tours to the “deserted islands” area of the Marine Park where the playful dolphins are a common sight. Not to mention that if you are lucky enough you may catch the view of the rare little seal.
