My favorite part of the villages…

were the narrow winding streets. Barely wide enough for the tiny cars that race full bore past the homes that are connected shoulder to shoulder for long blocks. The sidwalks for pedestrians are only inches wide and are often shared with the cars zooming by!  Our tour guide explained the curvey nature of the street layout.

Hundreds of years ago when they were building the town each curve was the distance an arrow could fly accurately.  This allowed the villagers an advantage in defending their homes from the Turks and Romans that invaded over the years.

But what I most wanted to see were the famous fishing boats.  Our timing was not the best as most were put up for the winter. Still it was a great time seeing the village and the Sunday street market loaded with fresh baked goods and seasfood staraight from the water.
