Built on a peninsula, it ends at the small island on which the medieval castle is built. It is an aesthetically impressive city and combines the old city with its narrow cobbled streets with the new city with its imposing mansions that were built in the previous century, at the heyday of the island's shipping.
Here modern comforts coexist with the old, nostalgic atmosphere and traditional professions. In Chora, everything is within walking distance.
