Poros is the island of peace, romance and jauntiness.It is overgrown with pine trees which reach the rugged shores or the sandy beaches. The residents of Poros are like all islands, spontaneous, decent and hospitable. The houses by the sea are big and neoclassical in contrast to the simple two - floored houses in Brinia, Mylos, Pounta and Kasteli. At the center of town you can find the archaeological museum, the library, reception rooms, and on the beach there's an open air cinema. There are many little taverns spread among the pictures - due backstreets of Poros.
Along the pier, the visitor sees plenty of cafeterias, restaurants, tourist shops, many bars and discos with foreign and Greek music.On the outskirts of the town in Northwest there are the Military Navy facilities, the Progymnastirio, the first residence of Othon. That is where today the pretraining of the sailors takes place. After the Progymnastirio, a small canal separates Spheria from Kalavria.After Sinikismos (Settlement) the visitors follow the footpath that continues along passing through a wonderful area full of pine trees. The picturesque church dedicated to Virgin Maria, the trees and the running water give to this place an exceptional beauty.Moreover the visitors can enjoy the wonderful view that the Posidonas Club offers. Another picturesque church the visitors will meet until they finally arrive to Palatia where the Ancient Temple of Posidonas exists.
After the canal bridge there is the Sinikismos (Settlement), which was first inhabited by Minor Asia refugees. On the left, towards the West, there is Perlia. The road continues along the beach passing through Neorio, the love port, and the Russian Dockyard with the little island Daskalio. On the right of kanali the road, in the east part, leads to Askeli and branches off towards the "Zoodochou Pigi" Monastery and in the north part, towards the Temple of Posidon and Vagionia. Furthermore, passing through 'Agios Stathis" plateau and "Prophitis Elias", we come back through the Sinikismos (Settlement) to the canal. Today Poros with its traditional local color, its picturesque, its cosmopolitan life and modern facilities is the ideal holiday resort.
