The island and town of 9.500 inhabitants situated near the cost and in the area where the NE wind Bura blows hard so that the NE side of the island is practically barren. It is a pretty, prosperous and popular place with many nice walks, some typical buildings and many churches. Very pleasant for a short stay.
