30 acres, at the entrance to the port of Poros island.
On the island there was a castle from the Byzantine period. It was subsequently used as a base of operations against the Saracen pirates. The castle that remains today comes from the fortress built there in the 19th century by the Bavarian Liberal Karl Willem the Haydek (1788-1861), who had served as chairman of the Treasury Committee of the New Greek State.
At that time, two small islands – Spharia and Kalavryra – came together to produce a little jewel in the Saronic Gulf, the island of Poros, which, along with its sister city of Galatas, is our next destination. Small boats carrying visitors come and go through the channel.
When you are there, you can find picturesque tavernas, marinas, yachts, neoclassical buildings, a clock tower and pine forests reaching the sea. All together, they offer a sense of peace and relaxation. There we can see the picturesque houses of Poros along with the volcanic rocks of Galata dating back to the time when the sea surface was created.
