Municipality Of the Month

Poros, meaning ‘passage’, is a beautiful island that actually comprises two separate islands: Sfera and Kalavria. Many visitors find Poros very interesting when they head to the island for their summer vacations, short escapes, and day trips, as it has a unique landscape of narrow sea passages. The island is home to many historical, and contemporary attractions and beautiful beaches, and is easily accessible both by land and sea. Lying conveniently close to the coastal holiday resort of Galatas in Troezen, Poros is just three minutes away by private boat or a ferry ride. Populated since the time of the Mycenaeans, this lush green island, formerly known as Kalavria, reached its summit during the Archaic and Classical eras, as evidenced by the fifth-century remains of the Temple of Poseidon. The island’s beauty has moved many writers and poets, among them Cosmas Politis, George Seferis, Costis Palamas, and American author Henry Miller.
