Built on a peninsula, it ends in a small island on which a medieval castle is built. In Chora, you can visit the old town with the narrow stone paved streets, and the new town with the imposing mansions which were built in the beginning of the century, when navigation was flourishing on the island. The island with the medieval castle is separated by the Chora peninsula with a narrow stripe of sea and is connected with the land with a stone bridge. The entrance of the Chora port is marked by the famous Tourlitis stone lighthouse. It’s a perfect reconstruction of the old stone lighthouse which was destroyed. The lighthouse is an offer of the Goulandris family.
